Welcome to all Itus Shield owners! Sadly, Itus Networks is now closed but we still have a great piece of hardware and thankfully it uses open source software on it so we should be able to continue on via updates directly from the respective providers:
On Jan 21, 2016 Itus pushed out an update to the firmware update script which disconnects Itus Networks from the Shield appliance. The new script pulls IPS rules updates directly from the emerging threats open ruleset as linked above. That was generous them to do that although we did not receive any type of official statement. The current firmware (1.51 sp1) has a throughput between 100-125Mbps and the box only uses 7-15 watts of power. The acceleration engines aren't even being utilized which was due for a future firmware update to double that throughput.
Thank you for hosting this site, user8846! Where would you like the associated files Hans and I have been storing? Right now, I have a few out on OneDrive that I could move over. They can stay there if you have a concern about storage space.
I think files should be able to be directly loaded via more > upload a file. I'm not sure on the limitations yet with Nabble forums... if there is one I can put files directly on my website for storage with no limitations.
Agreed! Thank you for getting this forum setup so the Shield can live on!
One request, I noticed there doesn't appear to be HTTPS available on the forum (or the main web page for that matter). Any chance that could be configured so that things like our login creds don't get compromised?
That being said, as was mentioned NEVER use the same password between sites! I guess this would be a good time to plug my favorite p/w manager: KeePass. Open source, free, and completely customizable but certainly use what you guys are comfortable with.
