Applies to: Forefront Security for Exchange Server

FSCController acts as the server component that Forefront Server Security Administrator connects to for configuration and monitoring. FSCController coordinates all Realtime, Manual, and Transport scanning activities. The FSCController startup type defaults to manual.


Changing the startup type to anything other than "manual" may cause FSE to not scan properly.


When you install Forefront Security for Exchange Server, it is configured to permit everyone access to FSCController. To change the security settings to restrict access to FSCController, you must use DCOMCNFG to modify the security settings.
