Is there a tool available to test the antivirus scanning function?
You can download the Eicar Standard Anti-Virus Test File from the following location:
There are four versions of the test file available, with links to each off the page referred to above. Eicar.org suggests testing with each of the four test files:
To test the antivirus scanning, send an email to a user on the Mirapoint or RazorGate appliance and attach one or more of these files. The Eicar test virus is a harmless DOS test program that all major antivirus vendors agreed to detect as a virus, for testing purposes. Thus, there is no risk of virus infection using these test files.
This testing assumes that you have licensed antivirus software from Mirapoint and that you have applied the license.
To verify that the license is applied, use one of the following:
- The CLI command License List
- The administration protocol
Telnet to port 10143, and enter the following command:

If Sophos, F-Secure, or RAPID Antivirus is installed, the system returns a string for each installed license similar to:
uaqdZvt0vVixxl0Ez5h9T1rs0ZrR5ipd "Sophos Antivirus 10000 users" 20081209 ( long_license_key : license_type : number_of_users : expiration_date )
- The Administration Suite Setup Wizard Configuration Summary page or navigate to the Home > Utilities > License page to identifiy which licenses are installed on your appliance.
