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.*.

Poll Results: How Would You Like Your TidBITS?

Poll Results: How Would You Like Your TidBITS? We're considering adding options for receiving TidBITS via email, so last week we asked how you'd most prefer to receive TidBITS to gauge interest in alternative formats. Just over 2,400 readers responded, with the overwhelming majority (75 percent) saying they'd prefer to receive TidBITS exactly the way it's available now, with the complete issue sent as plain text via email. However, 25 percent said they'd prefer another option if it were available: roughly 15 percent wanted complete issues in HTML format, and about 10 percent said they'd prefer instead to receive brief announcements in either HTML or text format. Though we explicitly said we were thinking of adding email subscription options, some people thought were planning to do away with the plain text edition. That's not the case: we plan to continue publishing issues as plain text email messages so long as there's interest. We're not yet sure what form additional subscription options will take, but we now have a better idea how to focus our efforts. Thanks for your input! [GD]
