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.*.

Translators Needed

Send Article to a Friend

Translators Needed -- For the last year or so, teams of dedicated volunteer translators have created award-winning translations of TidBITS in Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish. These teams could use additional volunteers to spread the load. Each team works a bit differently, but all could use more volunteers to translate an article every week or so. If you're interested in helping support the Macintosh in your country or language, please contact the appropriate coordinator below. [ACE]
