I am testing a web application. The problem is when antivirus is running on the web server, I am not able to login into my web application. I have to stop the antivirus services to work with my application.
I don't know if these two are working well together, but we have one IIS 5.0 Web server, on which we have installed some Rational products (using the IIS Web server) wich are running perfectly. We are using McAfee VirusScan w/SP v18.104.22.1684, to be exact.
So, I suppose your problem could be solved.
If you need a reason to be happy - FIND IT, don't wait it !
