"We consider TMA to be the Missing OS X Utilities - because it allows you to edit important configuration files (like restricting user access to ftp and telnet, etc) in a user friendly graphical interface. "
TMA presents you with a graphical user interface which allows you to inspect, edit, change, and create configuration files such as: hosts.allow, hosts.deny, motd, shells, ftp users, ftpchroot, ftpwelcome (and others!)
* TMA enables/disables services in the inetd.conf file
* TMA databases your updates in an encrypted format. Didn't like your changes? go back, and back, and back to a previous versions. Only limit is disk space on storing past versions.
* TMA will not allow changes to these files without the Mac OS X Administrative authentication. (You do not need to be logged in as root to use TMA).
* TMA understands that a sneaky trick of hackers when breaking into a UNIX system is to edit these files and grant themselves access to other services. As a service to you, TMA has a backgrounds process that monitors the state of these files and verifies them against its last saved database version. If there is not a match, HACKER ALERT! TMA will let you know.
* TMA even allows you to spell check your Message of the Day!
* All of this good stuff, for the low, low (introductory) price of $15.00. We will be planning to increase the price - probably around the time of the Summer Solstice, 2001. Those who purhcase now will receive free updates (even when the price goes up.)
Since the preview release, we've added Lots of great new goodies:
* IP Filtering
* E-mail alerts
* Service Authorization
