Symantec Corporate Antivirus on a Peer to Peer Network

Niraj writes in with a software question:
Question:
Can Norton corporate work on peer to peer network of 9 computers?

Answer: Are you planning on doing standalone installations of Symantec Corporate Edition or running a Symantec server? Either one will work but if you decide to run a server you should assign static IP addresses to the server and workstations.

You don't need an actual server but can have one of the workstations manage the others like it was a server as long as it has a supported operating system. XP Pro or any of the Windows server operating systems should work. That way when you check on the status of your clients they will have a set IP address.

If you want to have an unmanaged installation you can install it as an unmanaged client on each of your computers and manage them individually in regards to updates and checking infection status. It won’t be too hard with only 9 computers.
