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.*.

Microsoft says thanks to the TidBITS and Evangelist readers who took part in the "Mac-likeness" survey mentioned in TidBITS-372. Despite problems with their server, Microsoft collected more than ten times the data it was looking for in a week and a half, and says it received a strong message about what Macintosh users expect from software. Nice job, folks - we'll see if we can convince Microsoft to pass along the survey results. If you didn't get a chance to take the survey, Microsoft has a general feedback area where users can comment on any of their products. [GD]
