Solve Cliscan.dll Error Messages

The cliscan.dll file is included in the Symantec Anti Virus software and is registered to Symantec Corporation. It is a component that is integrated with the Symantec Client Security and Symantec Scan Engine. It helps keep client systems safe by providing comprehensive and proactive protection against malware with vulnerability-based detection. The cliscan.dll file is called by a ‘sub-application’.

It provides integrated graphical reporting and simplified management of multiple integrated security technologies in order to allow organizations to maintain control of client systems, minimize productivity disruptions, and enhance client security.

A TCP/IP server together with a programming interface can be found on the Symantec Scan Engine application. Thus, the capability of incorporating Symantec content support scanning technologies on the proprietary software applications of third party software developers is provided by this module. The engine that drives the cliscan.dll module implements a simple TCP/IP protocol for the sake of providing scanning functionality to client applications.

Similar to protocols such as SMTP and HTTP, this is a text-based protocol. It uses standard ASCII commands and responses to communicate between the client and the server. In scanning files, a client establishes a connection between it and the IP port chosen by default. It then sends over the file to be scanned and reads the results of the scan. The cliscan.dll module also handles the correct protocols involved in the file transfer process.

After the client receives the scan results, the client and server will disconnect and must initiate a new connection to scan subsequent files.

The cliscan.dll module proves to be an essential component of the Symantec Scan Engine. The administrative client that uses the cliscan.dll module exchanges sensitive configuration information with the server using a proprietary protocol protected by SSL, which runs by default on TCP port 8005. As an example, this built-in SSL server is used to transmit the administrator’s password hash while changing the password.

It is important to maintain the stability, privacy, authenticity, and reliability of this communication channel. The cliscan.dll module is called by two sub-processes of the Symantec Anti Virus, namely the processes rtvscan.exe and vptray.exe.

What is a DLL?

Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.

DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.

When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.

Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
