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.*.

Send Article to a Friend

For a variety of reasons, I'll be more or less away from email for the next five weeks. I'll be using Mikael Hansen's free AutoShare to provide automated vacation mail replies, and although I will read everything I receive during this time, I may not be able to reply. Please send TidBITS-related mail to <editors@tidbits.com> where Geoff Duncan and Jeff Carlson can handle it. Thanks! [ACE]
