Virtual agent connection parameters
Depending on settings on the server side, the station can connect to the Scanning Server. In this case, the station is considered virtual agent; it sends requests to scan files and URLs to the server. Virus databases and filter bases are not stored on the station.

•Scanning Server connection status of the station;
•Scanning Server ID.

•—synchronize system time on your computer with the time on the central protection server. In this mode, Dr.Web periodically sets the time on you computer in accordance with the server time.
•—keep virus databases up-to-date.
If your computer is disconnected from the central protection server for a long time, we recommend enabling the Mobile mode of Dr.Web operation in order to receive updates from the Doctor Web update servers. For that purpose, select the check box.
In the Mobile mode, Dr.Web attempts to connect to the central protection server. After three unsuccessful attempts, it performs an update of the virus databases from Doctor Web update servers. Attempts to establish server connection are performed with an interval of about one minute.
To configure Mobile mode settings
