Trust Local Addresses in VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal

VirusBarrier X6's Antivandal feature stops all kinds of network attacks, including port scans, ping floods and more. However, you may have some devices on your network that send out pings or other requests that may be interpreted as attacks. To prevent this, add them to the Trusted Addresses list so they won't be blocked. You can even add a range of addresses with wildcards, such as 192.168.1.*.

I wanted to comment quickly that we're aware of the passage of the Telecommunications Reform Act and of the furor surrounding some of its wording. Until we've had a chance to investigate more seriously, though, we didn't want to write about it. More soon - in the meantime, consider checking out the protest pages below. [ACE]
