Dear Customer,

Thank you for contacting us at eScan.

Firstly check the status of mwav by command
/etc/init.d/mwav status

if it is running then run command

/etc/init.d/mwav restart

if it is in blocked state run command
killall -9 mwavd

and then restart mwav service

For further support related queries for eScan products , kindly send an email to
With Regards,
Vineeth K.
