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.*.

Sold For Dollars and Sense

Send Article to a Friend

Software Toolworks will acquire Monogram, maker of Dollars and Sense, a popular home finance package, at the end of June. Owners of Dollars and Sense need not worry, though, since Software Toolworks will continue to support Dollars and Sense, and the upgrade to version 5.0 will still be released in a month or so. Software Toolworks is retaining the list of people who have requested the upgrade to version 5.0, but if you are curious it might be best to call and confirm. The CompuServe forum run by Monogram will be closing but may be re-opened by Software Toolworks. Calling them and requesting the support forum would probably help to ensure its return.

Monogram -- 800/356-5988 -- 213/533-5120 (tentative)
Software Toolworks -- 818/885-9000
