Configuring a http-proxy for F-Secure Anti-Virus for Mac
We used to have instructions available for configuring a http-proxy for this particular product on our old forum (forum.f-secure.com), but as the site is no longer available, posting this information again for your convenience.
Before starting, log in as a user with Administrator privileges.
1. Open a Terminal window by navigating with Finder to /Applications/Utilities. Double-click Terminal.
Let's create a writable copy of the AUA config file and use the default text editor to modify the file.
$ cp /usr/local/f-secure/fsaua/etc/fsaua_config /tmp
$ open -t /tmp/fsaua_config
2. Locate the following string inside the file.
Edit the string and add the name of your local http-proxy to the string and remove the hash (#) symbol.
Save the file by selecting the Close option from the File menu, TextEdit automatically saves the file.
3. Copy the modified copy of the file back to its original location.
$ sudo cp /tmp/fsaua_config /usr/local/f-secure/fsaua/etc/fsaua_config
As this requires elevated user rights, type the password for the administrative account.
Restart the AUA daemon by asking launchd to stop it. This also automatically relaunches it.
$ sudo launchctl stop com.f-secure.aua
Remove the stored copy of the file.
$ rm /tmp/fsaua_config
