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.*.

Officially, the X in Mac OS X is a Roman numeral and according to Apple is pronounced "Mac OS Ten," though many people currently say "Mac OS Ex." Which do you find yourself using when talking about Mac OS X? Visit the TidBITS home page and cast your vote! [JLC]
