IPNetSentry 1.1.1 Traces Intruders -- Sustainable Softworks has released IPNetSentry 1.1.1, a minor update to the company's personal firewall software (see "Macworld SF 2001 Trend: Personal Firewalls" in TidBITS-564). This version adds an internal Log window for the last 32K of log entries and the capability to bypass the splash screen by holding down Command while launching the IPNetSentry Companion application. More significant, when IPNetSentry detects an intrusion, it enables the user to perform a trace route on the intruder's IP address, which can help identify the source of an attack. The actual trace route is done through a separate Sustainable Softworks' product, IPNetMonitor. Although the update to IPNetSentry is free, IPNetMonitor costs $30, and it's also included in a variety of bundles with discounted pricing. IPNetSentry 1.1.1 is a 1.2 MB download and requires Mac OS 7.6.1 and Open Transport 1.1 or later running on a PowerPC-based Mac. [ACE]
