Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0a -- Although I use a variety of browsers to view and test Web sites, I'm using Microsoft's Internet Explorer with increasing regularity. With the release of version 3.0a (PowerPC-only, alas) last week, Microsoft has resolved problems with deleting cache files, repeatedly reloading some Web pages, Challenge Response Protocol (used when accessing secured pages), and loading Java under MacTCP. Minimum and full install versions are available, ranging in size from 2.1 MB to nearly 8 MB. [JLC]
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.*.
