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.*.

DragThing 5.3.1 Adds Email Count

Send Article to a Friend

DragThing 5.3.1 Adds Email Count -- TLA Systems has released DragThing 5.3.1, adding features to the launcher and Dock replacement. New in this version is the capability to display the number of unread message in the email In box for Apple's Mail, Entourage, Eudora, Mailsmith, NetNewsWire, and PowerMail. (However, note that version 5.3.1 disables the feature for Eudora due to excessive processor use when dealing with a large In box; you can re-enable it using a downloadable patch.) Also new is the capability to display application-specific contextual menu commands (such as a Play/Pause control for iTunes). A number of other fixes have also been applied. DragThing 5.3.1 is a free update for owners of DragThing 5.0 and later; a new license costs $29, and upgrades from versions 2 and 4 cost $12. The update is a 9 MB download and requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later. [JLC]
