Preliminary Notes before Installation

Please be aware of the following notes when using Virus Buster (Windows/mac) or ServerProtect for Linux.


  1. The following ports are used for communications between the software and the management server which is placed in Academic Computing & Communications Center:
    443 8080 5274 35742 (for Windows) 443 8080 5274 61617 (for Mac)
    If the subnetwork under which you connect your PC to the campus network has its own firewall, the firewall needs setting up to allow communications through the ports.
  2. Installation must be performed while connected to the campus LAN or VPN service.
  3. The activation code for the software is renewed every April. When the license is renewed, a new activation code is issued. Clients need to change the old activation code to the new one within 30 days. To make this change, you have only to connect your PC to the campus network. If you use the software off campus for a long time, connect your PC directly (or via VPN) to the campus network in April. Unless the new activation code is applied within 30 days, the software will be unable to receive the latest updates.


  1. When you perform a fresh installation or the license has been renewed, you need to set up the activation code. Access ServerProtect for Linux Activation Code Web and finish setting up.
  2. The license is renewed every April. Obtain a new activation code within April and apply the activation code manually. For the instructions, on how to obtain the activation code, refer to Installation for Linux.
