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.*.

We'd like to welcome our new sponsor, Nisus Software, publishers of Nisus, Nisus Compact, and the programmer's editor QUED/M. You can get an index of their information files (and find out how to request files) by sending email to <sponsors@tidbits.com>, or to automatically receive a 38K file containing all six information files, send email to <nisus-all@tidbits.com>. This file will not pass through the AppleLink or America Online gateways, so users of those services must request files individually.

Among other useful information, Nisus Software's files include news about the just-updated QUED/M, Nisus hints and tips, using Nisus foreign-language versions (the only foreign language word processor available in the US, according to MacWEEK), descriptions of Nisus Software's other products, and instructions on how to get free demo versions of Nisus and Nisus Compact.

Many thanks to Nisus Software for supporting TidBITS!
