To get the static IP:
  1. Click Start > Run
  2. Type "CMD" and press Enter.
  3. On the command prompt window, type in the command below and press Enter:
    nslookup wfbs-svc30-p.activeupdate.trendmicro.com
    Note: "wfbs-svc30-p.activeupdate.trendmicro.com" is the WFBS-SVC update server.
    You will get the static IP for your location.
