[REBOL] Re: Network Guru...

From: louisaturk:eudoramail at: 17-Dec-2001 16:50

Marj and Brett, I took your advice---read the articles and installed zonealert. Nothing seems to be trying to access the internet from my computer, so I suppose that is good news. However, zonealert shows that rebol is constantly running, even when my scripts are not running. Since I must manually relax security (both read and write) for my script to run, and the security seems to stay relaxed after my script runs, I am still concerned. Is there some way the script itself can set security---open the door, do its work, then shut and lock the door? Louis At 11:45 AM 12/17/2001 +1100, you wrote:
