virus def update site?

I have my product (NAV2008) set to check for virus def updates every 3 hours. I notice that

Sometimes it shows updates coming after connecting to

symantec.com

sometimes it shows updates after connecting to

liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com

is that a problem? Or are they just different servers that deliver the same content and it is just random as to which one it connects to??

I think it will be what you wrote in your last line :). There are so many users of NAV, N360 and NIS that it must require several update servers around the globe, and when one is busy you will be moved to the next nearest one available.

So nothing to worry about, it is completely normal.

Thanks PapauZ

so it doesn't make any difference that one url indicates something about Live update (liveupdate.symantecliveupdate.com) but the other url (symantec.com) doesn't say anything about live update? So if there are updates available they will be downloaded even if I'm just connected to symantec.com?  In essence is there no difference when all is said and done, that both will give updates if they are available?

Hello Calls

If your computer is on and if the definitions come out and if you have no malware that would prevent you from receiving the definitions, then you will receive them, no matter from which update server.
