Trend PC-Cillin Internet Security 2006... giving me the irrits
Trend PC-Cillin Internet Security 2006 includes a feature called "Private Network Protection". This feature, apparently, allows you to remotely manage Trend installations on all machines on a local network.
Here's the situation.
Four PCs, all with the same version of Trend PC-Cillin installed. All installs have a password enabled, and all have the same password. But what happens when I try to refresh the list of PCs on the network? "No computer with supported software found". Even after disabling firewalls on all PCs (safe to do on a temporary basis because I have a hardware firewall) Private Network Protection simply doesn't work.
So, let's have a look at the help page:
Correct version of PC-Cillan installed on all PCs? - yep
Private network protection enabled? - yep
Password set? - yep
Same Trend password on all PCs? - yep
Well, I can't get it to work - have never been able to get it to work. Damned irritating. The help page reads like all we need is a password to protect the Trend console - maybe I'm reading it wrong - I hope not, because if all PCs must have the same user account password, sorry, but that ain't gonna happen.
Now that I have an SBS2003 box running at home, I'll be able to drop the consumer product and go back to the SMB version once a certain gentleman, who shall remain nameless, answers an email query... yes, you know who you are ;o) That being said, I'd really like to work out why the heck I can't get Private Network Protection working.
