clamsmtp doesn't have permision to open the socket. do
ls -ld /var/run/clamav/
ls -l /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl
and see what user/group is clamsmtp running under.

no, the messzage clearsly says it's permission problem.
Btw, why clamsmtp? which MTA do you use?
ls -ld /var/run/clamav/ ----> drwxr-xr-x 2 clamav clamav 60 2009-07-14 12:01 /var/run/clamav/
ls -l /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl ---> -rw-r--r-- 1 clamav clamav 0 2009-07-14 11:52 /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl
I am using Postfix as the MTA. As for using clamsmtp, why not, if it intercepts viruses for me?
btw .. i successfully installed clamsmtp on a virtual linux machine and I thought it would be just as easy to install on my desktop box! -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/cannot-get-clamsmtp-to-work-properly-tp24473002p24490927.html Sent from the clamav-users mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ Help us build a comprehensive ClamAV guide: visit http://wiki.clamav.net http://www.clamav.net/support/ml
