clamd.sock error

Hi all,

we are using the SOSDG win32 port of Clamav (cygwin) reliably for many
years now as a network stream scanner for our mailserver.

In the last few days we have been getting this error:

ERROR: LOCAL: Socket file /cygdrive/c/clamav-devel/clamd.sock could not
be bound: Invalid argument (unlink tried)

So we installed the latest version to another 2003 server, and ran this
for an hour and again the mail stops being scanned and the log shows the
same message.

Is this a clamav issue or a cygwin issue?

Regards,

Geoff Partridge

Which version are you using exactly?

Re: clamd.sock error [In reply to]

Hello.

I don't have any problem's with my clamav 0.92.1. I have clamav installation
on my Win 2003 for about year and the only "problem" i had was to update the
clamav program. I also use different mail server. Perhaps this is the
problem.

I don't see this error in a fresh install of the 0.93 version. Does the socket have a
meaning on any Windows Clamav version?

(I usually disable the socket in clamd.conf when I enable the TCP port.)

Yes, the socket is used as an alternative to the TCP port, and in some
cases, works more reliably. The batch files I included in the
C:\clamav-devel take care of deleting stale socket files on startup.

Thanks, that's interesting. I use clamd socket on linux, but never on Win.
