NOTE: As of SEP 14.2 RU2 and newer there is no command line scanner included with the product. This article applies only to previous versions of SEP 14. For SEP 12 or SAV products, see Command line switches and use of NAVX command line utility for SAV/SEP for Mac

Usage:

nortonscanner [OPTION]... [FILE | SCANTYPE]...

Options are:
  -a        report all files scanned
  -A        enable alerting
  -c        scan inside of compressed files
  -f        force run, even if the file specified with -o can't be opened
  -h, -H    show this message
  -i        invert output (show non-infected files only)
  -L        enable logging
  -o <file> append output to <file>
  -Q        quarantine files that can't be repaired
  -r        do not repair infected files (invalidates -Q)
  -U        cancel scan if disk unmounted
  -v        display the version number

Scan type is:
  quarantine  Scan the files currently in quarantine
  quickscan   Perform a Quick scan of commonly infected areas
  systemscan  Perform a system scan

Usage:

nortonscanner [OPTION] -E <FILE> -T <SCANTYPE>

Checks if the specified file would be excluded from scanning, based on current setttings, for the specified scan type (autoprotect, quickscan, fullscan, or filescan). Returns 1 if the file would be excluded (and prints the reason); otherwise returns 0.  

Options are:
  -f        force run, even if the file specified with -o can't be opened
  -o <file> append output to <file>
  -v        display the version number
