Installing HAVP (HTTP Antivirus Proxy)

Ástþór IPÁstþór IP

HAVP (HTTP Antivirus Proxy) is a proxy with a ClamAV anti-virus scanner. The main aims are continuous, non-blocking downloads and smooth scanning of dynamic and password protected HTTP traffic. Havp antivirus proxy has a parent and transparent proxy mode. It can be used with squid or standalone.

1. Install HAVP

apt-get install havp

2. Start HAVP if it didn’t start after the installation

/etc/init.d/havp start

It’s ready, by default HAVP listens on port 8080. You can configure your web browser to use the server as a proxy.

You can customize the error pages by editing the html files in this directory: /etc/havp/templates/en/

    Hey, unfortunately i got the following error.

    hostname:~# /etc/init.d/havp start
    Cleaning up /var/spool/havp… done
    Starting havp: Starting HAVP Version: 0.89
    LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************
    LibClamAV Warning: *** This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated. ***
    LibClamAV Warning: *** DON’T PANIC! Read http://www.clamav.net/support/faq ***
    LibClamAV Warning: ***********************************************************
    /etc/init.d/havp: line 37: 30979 Segmentation fault start-stop-daemon –start –quiet –pidfile $PIDFILE –exec $DAEMON — $DAEMON_OPTS

    unfortunately i have installed:

    hostname:~# whereis freshclam
    freshclam: /usr/bin/freshclam /usr/share/man/man1/freshclam.1.gz
    hostname:~# whereis clamscan
    clamscan: /usr/bin/clamscan /usr/share/man/man1/clamscan.1.gz

    But i don’t know how to get rid of at least one of them, because i just need to have installed one of them. although i used the “apt-get install havp” command, freshclam and clamscan are installed.

    thx.
    T.

    I have exactly the same problem (…line 37: … Segmentation fault …)!!

    (I’m running a freshly installed Debian Lenny 5.0.4 (i386) with the current squid3 package. The system has a P4 cpu at 2.8 GHz and 2 GB of RAM.)

    Do you have any idea how to solve this?

    Thanks a lot!

    You need to install version of havp: 0.92. I had the same problem until installing 0.92 from sources

    Is there a way to configure squid with ClamAV anti-virus scanner?
