Installing Clamav antivirus on Samba in Ubuntu

Many people use Samba in their file server to let Windows users share their files there. But some people just doesn't care if they have shared virus infected files. The other users merely become the victim.

So, lets arm our Samba to protect users from viruses hidden in the shared directories. In Ubuntu and other *nix distros, we can use free Clamav antivirus plugged in to Samba which is called clamav-scan. *nix distros usually provide ready-to-install binary of clamav-scan. But Ubuntu does not. So you must compile the plug in manually.

Enough for the intro, now we'll begin arming the Samba in Ubuntu (my Ubuntu version is 7.04 feisty fawn) . Don't be rush. You must follow test instruction before proceeding the next step.

1. Prepare package Clamav and supporting packages
apt-get install clamav arj unzoo lha clamav-freshclam clamav-daemon clamav-testfilesbuild-essential

You may also need build-essential package

Test: Please make sure that we can scan infected files.
