[Mimedefang] Mimedefang 2.15 on FreeBSD 4.0

I am testing it with the stream-by-domain-filter since I have no Virus
Scanning Tools Installed. This may be wrong thing to do...
What I just did (may be wrong and probably is):

#rm -rf /var/spool/MIMEDefang/*

su'd to defang user and did:
%/usr/local/bin/mimedefang -p /var/spool/MIMEDefang/mimedefang.sock&
%/usr/local/bin/mimedefang-multiplexor -l

Back to root:
#killall sendmail
#sendmail -bd
#tail -f /var/log/maillog

invalid socket (Invalid argument), try again

Is it working and I'm overlooking something very simple? or is the sequence
I mentioned above pooched?
I was also wondering if there is any free virus scanning software that I can
download that will work with this...

Thank you all so much!

Use the multiplexor, and use the "-l" option.  Your Perl filter probably
has a bug, and mimedefang.pl is crashing.
