Thanks to some help here I am successfully calling an external application via a `CALL'. However, on the way tp execution I get a `Security Check' that says: Script requests premission to open a port or read/write on... Where can I find out how to control/manage this? (in particular to avoid the question in circumstances where I am not concerned about security)?

Hi David, You can information in the Core2.3 manual found on this page: http://www.rebol.com/docs.html or more specifically on security: http://www.rebol.com/docs/core23/rebolcore-3.html#pgfId-297453 and additionally in the very next section describing program arguments. Brett.

Thank you for another helpful pointer. I find I can do what I want without any `security problem' if I execute REBOL mycode.r but if I go to my REBOL desktop and modify BOOKMARKS.R so that it contains file "NessCtrl" %mycode.r then I get a `security check' when I click on my `NessCtrl' folder on my REBOL desktop and try to do the execute this way. Does this make sense?

Hi David, Rebol has a sandbox model (I don't know of any official documentation I can point you to). The sandbox that a script runs in appears to be based on where the script lives. That is the same directory of the script and sub-directories are ok to access. So you set up your icon in bookmarks.r. You supplied no path so your mycode.r file must reside in the View directory itself. For you to get a security check, your mycode.r file must have tried to access a file or directory outside of the View directory or one of it's subdirectories. There's more to it, but I have to run off. I'll try to go into more detail later unless someone else jumps in. See also, http://www.escribe.com/internet/rebol/m9642.html Brett.

Actually, there probably not that much more to it. secure query Will show you the current security settings. I've created a little program that simply shows the settings and attempts a write and a create directory, to illustrate when the settings come into play. However, there is a small glitch. Just executing my little program will cause the security check because of the location of my supporting scripts. In order to avoid these two checks I would need to have the supporting scripts land within the cache in the same directory as the script or in a subdirectory of the running script's directory.

That's a big step forward in helping me understand. Thanks.
