For a current list of antivirus software vendors that support Novell Open Enterprise Server, see Novell Open Enterprise Server Partner Support: Backup and Antivirus Support. This list is updated quarterly.

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