C# Question

nclam anti virus is not working with .net application

I am getting this issue: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 127.0.0.1:3310.

using System;
using System.Linq;
using nClam;

class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{

var clam = new ClamClient("localhost", 3310);
var scanResult = clam.ScanFileOnServer(@"C:\inetpub\wwwroot\rarextract\parts\eicar_com.zip"); //any file you would like!

switch(scanResult.Result)
{
case ClamScanResults.Clean:
Console.WriteLine("The file is clean!");
break;
case ClamScanResults.VirusDetected:
Console.WriteLine("Virus Found!");
Console.WriteLine("Virus name: {0}", scanResult.InfectedFiles.First().VirusName);
break;
case ClamScanResults.Error:
Console.WriteLine("Woah an error occured! Error: {0}", scanResult.RawResult);
break;
}
}
}

It looks like you do not have the ClamWin service installed or running on the machine that is executing your code. I wrote some directions a to install it here: http://architectryan.com/2011/05/19/nclam-a-dotnet-library-to-virus-scan/.
