Vipre Enterprise

Vipre Enterprise

I recently gave up on McAffee at work. Not that I really have many big issues with it but the software seemed to sit a bit heavily on our admittedly agening laptops.

Instead I went with Vipre and I have to say I've been very impressed. There is only 1 agent process running on clients and its much lighter on client systems generally.

Use Ubuntu to present your SAN to the network

Use Ubuntu to present your SAN to the network

I've recently been working on a way to improve our backup procedures. We back up to the network initially and I had been doing this using windows backup to a network drive.

This does work: but it slow and unreliable: so I decided that a good way forward would be to present the drive to the file server locally via a SAN.

Firefox 4 & iNotes

Firefox 4 and iNotes

Having tried out firefox 4 on 7, XP and Ubuntu I have to say that I'm impressed. However, I've found that loading up the webmail part of Lotus Notes, iNotes, does not appear possible in the new version.

We run Notes 8.5.2 Fixpack 1: so we are up to date: but when you go into your inbox you get an error message and cannot view your mails.

VirusScan 8.8

VirusScan 8.8

This has been released into the wild.

There are a long list of enhancements to this compared to version 8.7 which has been with us for some time (and quite a few service packs). In general it is supposed to run faster and use less resources.
