In the Advanced settings dialog box, you can limit the bandwidth used for updating. This prevents updating from using all the bandwidth when a computer needs it for other purposes, e.g. downloading email.
|You open this dialog box from the Primary server or Secondary server configuration pages. You configure the settings separately for primary and secondary server.|
Select Limit amount of bandwidth used if you want to ensure that Sophos AutoUpdate can work unobtrusively alongside other applications. Use the slider control to specify the bandwidth in Kbits/second. If you specify more bandwidth than the computer has available, Sophos AutoUpdate will use all that is available.
