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.*.

HyperCard, meet dBASE

Send Article to a Friend

At Macworld Expo, Symmetry Software demonstrated Dashboard DB, a HyperCard toolkit that will allow developers to create front-ends to large, pre-existing database in dBASE format. The toolkit, which is schedule to ship in June, will cost $129 and will give HyperCard the ability to modify and search for records in dBASE format databases. Hopefully, the availability of Dashboard DB will help the Macintosh gain a foothold in companies locked into PC platforms due to the format of their databases. Similar products are available to allow HyperCard to interact with Oracle databases, Omnis 5 databases, and databases created with ACIUS's 4th Dimension.
