Or, try the samba-vscan project (http://www.openantivirus.com), which
allows you to do on-access scanning in samba with your choice of virus
scanner (Fprot, OpenAntivirus, Sophos, Trend or Kaspersky). I have
tested it with Sophos (with samba-vscan 0.2.x), and am working on
getting the latest version running with Sophie (a daemon for managing
Sophos) in preparation for using it in production.
