I do not want to start this thread AGAIN as someone stated earlier. 
However, please read our scenario and if you have the same please respond 
with any suggestions.

2 servers
Win2K, MetaFrame XP FR2

User's run an email program (Eudora). Attachments are saved to a network 
drive (user's home drive, novell). Our local workstation's have McAfee but 
Citrix does not utilize the local vscan software when dealing with ICA 
connection's. We do not have any vscan software on our Novell servers (home 
directories) due to performance hits.

We need to apply some kind of virus scan software on our Citrix servers. We 
installed McAfee Netshield only to promptly Blue Screen the server the 
first time Eudora was launched. I have also tried CA's InoculateIT only to 
see that the network drives were not scanning on access, nor was the 
application deleting the infected files, only renaming them. I cannot seem 
to get the Sophos application client to work inside a terminal server session.

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

When is Citrix going to just come out with their own virus scanning 
software for these types of situations???
