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.*.

VST Ignites FireWire with New Drives

Send Article to a Friend

VST Ignites FireWire with New Drives -- Need more hard disk space, but don't have a free outlet to plug in a new hard drive's power cord? If you own a FireWire-equipped Power Macintosh G3, you can now purchase FireWire drives from VST Technologies. Powered via the FireWire port, the new 2 GB, 4 GB, and 6 GB drives require no external power supply (unless two or more drives exist on the same chain; an optional AC adapter is available) and feature data transfer rates of up to 400 Mbps. Long-time owners of SCSI hard drives will envy the fact that FireWire drives require no device ID number or termination, and support hot plugging and unplugging. VST is currently shipping the drives, which sell for $300, $400, or $500 depending on the drive's capacity. [JLC]
