Protea Tools helps admins detect suspicious e-mails

Lotus Domino administrators can detect suspicious e-mails in Domino's message stream using Protea AntiVirus Tools 1.03 (PAV Tools), from South African company Protea Tools. PAV Tools uses the open-source anti-virus engine ClamAV to scan messages and attachments directly in the instead of placing e-mails in an intermediate depository. The program can scan up to 18,000 messages an hour without affecting server performance.

PAV Tools supports Lotus Domino 5.X and 6.X and is designed for Windows NT/2000 Server/2003 Server. A single-server license is $600. Current registered customers are entitled to free updates and lifetime technical support.

Integra for Domino Administrators is available for $999 per administrator. Shireburn also offers two other Lotus Notes reporting solutions: Integra for Notes and Integra Quick Reports.

Teamstudio tool lets developers navigate LotusScript code

Beverly, Mass.-based Teamstudio Inc. has released Teamstudio Script Browser, a tool that allows developers to navigate the LotusScript code stored on Lotus Notes databases. The browser was developed as a way to save developers the trouble of using only the native script tools in Domino Designer. The browser sorts code by script library, class or call, provides the name of the code's script library and its line number and describes how the code's function was declared. Teamstudio Script Browser is available free from the company's Web site.

PistolStar program offers multi-password synchronization

PistolStar Inc. of Nashua, N.H., has released the latest version of its single sign-on and self-service password program. Called Web Set Password Global 7, the program offers browser-based multi-password synchronization and access to Lotus applications from the Lotus Notes clients through authentication with the Windows or directory password.

The upgraded Web Set Password Global prevents users from using similar passwords when they reset passwords. The program includes a self-registration utility so administrators do not have to get involved when users reset passwords and allows administrators to store more detailed log-in information.

Web Set Password Global 7 is a server-side solution that integrates with IBM Lotus technology and does not require end-user setup. Web Set Password supports iSeries, IBM AIX 5.1 and higher, Linux, Sun Solaris UltraSPARC and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Windows NT, 2000, and XP. The program is sold for an average price of $4-$6 per user based on the total number of end-users.

Ytria tool lets admins debug, monitor databases

Montreal-based Ytria Inc. has released the latest version of ScanEZ, its explorer tool letting Notes/Domino administrators and developers debug, edit and monitor databases. The program operates as an independent application and displays all documents, deletion stubs and conflicts in the explorer tree. ScanEZ allows its users to compare two or more documents, solve multiple replication conflicts and identify corrupted documents.

ScanEZ 3.0 supports versions R4.6x to 6.x of Notes/Domino. It is available free in read-only format from the company's Web site and for $349 as a fully licensed version.
