The Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) support for NSS files on OES 2 SP1 Linux is implemented via a technology that bypasses the real-time scanning employed by most OES 2 antivirus solutions. NSS files shared through an AFP connection might be protected by on-demand scanning on the OES 2 server or by real-time and on-demand scanning on the Apple client.
