Why does reconfiguring paths in the Server configuration section of Spybot S&D Update and Configuration Server not work for me?
When reconfiguring the paths in the Server configuration section, the corresponding directories must exist.
If the directories do not exist any changes you make will not be saved.
Check the firewall settings of the computer the Spybot S&D Update and Configuration Server is running on.
Also make sure the port it is listening on (port 80 by default) is not used by another network service like a general purpose web server.
Configure your email address and your account data for the SMTP server in the web interface of the ‘Spybot S&D Update and Configuration Server’ (UCS). Logs of the scans on the clients will be emailed to the email account you selected.<br><br>
If you are running Spybot S&D as a scheduled task, you must configure it to use the SMTP protocol directly instead of the installed system default mailer. This can be done via the option Mailer application on the Client settings page of the Spybot S&D UCS.
Make sure the program directory of Spybot S&D Update and Configuration Server contains the files license.txt and license.key and then restart the program.
