What is the difference between pulling and pushing?
Pulling and pushing are two methods available for clients to get the Definition File from the Server. If you are using Ad-Aware Enterprise on a large network (more than 20 clients in the same domain) pulling offers a better performance. When the number of nodes in the network is less than 20, the two methods deliver similar performances. Pushing is more suitable for the "Force Updating" option found in the "Scheduled Updating" option panel.
