This topic explains the options that are configured using the Core server with user interface mode. to work with the Core server only mode.
If you select ICAP, you must configure certain ICAP-specific options. You must also configure the ICAP client to work with Symantec Protection Engine. For more information, see the ICAP client documentation.
describes the configuration options for ICAP.
Table: Protocol-specific options for ICAP
Symantec Protection Engine detects all of the available IP addresses that are installed on the host. By default, Symantec Protection Engine accepts scanning requests on (binds to) all of the scanning IP addresses that it detects. You can configure up to 64 IP addresses as scanning IP addresses.
You can specify whether you want Symantec Protection Engine to bind to all of the IP addresses that it detects, or you can restrict access to one or more interfaces. If you do not specify at least one IP address, Symantec Protection Engine binds to all of the scanning IP addresses that it detects.
If Symantec Protection Engine fails to bind to any of the selected IP addresses, an event is written to the log as a critical error. Even if Symantec Protection Engine is unable to bind to any IP address, you can access the console. However, scanning functionality is unavailable.
You can use 127.0.0.1 (the loopback interface) to let only the clients that are running on the same computer connect to Symantec Protection Engine.
The port number must be exclusive to Symantec Protection Engine. You must use the same port number for all of the scanning IP addresses that you want to bind to Symantec Protection Engine.
The default port number is 1344. If you change the port number, use a number that is equal to or greater than 1024. No other program or service should use this port number.
To configure ICAP options
In the console on the primary navigation bar, click Configuration.
In the sidebar under Views, click Protocol.

Under ICAP Configuration, in the Bind address table, select the scanning IP addresses that you want to bind to Symantec Protection Engine. Check Select All to select every IP Address in the Bind address table.
Only four IP addresses appear in the Bind address table. Click the scroll bar to view additional IP addresses.
By default, Symantec Protection Engine binds to all interfaces.
In the Port number box, type the TCP/IP port number that the client application uses to pass files to Symantec Protection Engine for scanning.
The default setting for ICAP is port 1344. If you change the port number, use a number that is equal to or greater than 1024. No other program or service should use this port number. You must use the same port number for every scanning IP addresses that you want to bind to Symantec Protection Engine.
