Internet Access Scheduler™ FAQ
- Q: What is Internet Access Scheduler?
Internet Access Scheduler (IAS) lets you decide which Windows 9x/Me
users can access which TCP/IP based protocols (HTTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3,
Telnet etc.) on a local Windows 9x/Me computer. IAS allows you to set
allowed/denied TCP/UDP destination ports for incoming and outgoing
TCP/IP connections. Once IAS is installed, you can control access to
incoming/outgoing TCP/IP connections depending on the time of day and the day of the week.
IAS enhances access control for Windows System Administrators and
can protect local and network computers against viruses, trojans and
other malicious programs which are often obtained from the Internet
unknowingly. Remote control is also available.
- Q: What limitations are there in an unregistered
- A: There are no functional limitations for an unregistered
version and you may use Internet Access Scheduler (during the evaluation period) as a
fully registered program but only on one computer. An unregistered
version of Internet Access Scheduler displays nag screens.
- Q: Is it safe to use my credit card on the internet?
- A: Yes. All our registrations use SECURE protocols. It
is impossible for a third party to intercept your credit card
information. We also offer alternative ordering methods (such as order
by fax, toll-free phone, bank transfer, etc.).
- Q: I bought the Single license of Internet Access Scheduler. Could I
install Internet Access Scheduler on all the computers in my network?
- A: You may install Internet Access Scheduler Service on only a single
computer but Internet Access Scheduler Manager can be installed on any number of your
computers. The Single license gives you the right to use Internet Access Scheduler on
one computer so you are able to control access on only one computer. If
you wish to use Internet Access Scheduler on several computers, you need to purchase
the appropriate number of Single licenses.
For example, if you wish
to control TCP/UDP connections on:
- one computer - you need to
purchase one Single license ($24.95);
- two computers - you need to
purchase two Single licenses ($49.90);
- 45 computers in the one domain
- you need to purchase 45 Single licenses ($1122.75), but you can buy the
Site license ($300) and you'll be able to install Internet Access Scheduler on all the
computers in the one domain (one Site license per one domain). Moreover,
you will need to purchase additional licenses only for other domains so
if you decide to add computers to the same domain, you won't pay for the
- all the computers - you can purchase the World
license ($600) and install Internet Access Scheduler on all the computers in your
- Q: What is the difference between Site and World
- A: A Site license gives you the right to install Internet Access Scheduler
on all the computers in one domain. If you wish to install Internet Access Scheduler on
all the computers in all your domains you should purchase the World
- Q: Can I install Internet Access Scheduler under Windows
- A: You can install Internet Access Scheduler Manager on a Windows XP/2000/NT
machine to manage remotely the Internet Access Scheduler Service on a Windows 9x/Me
computers. If you would like to have user-level access control for TCP/IP connections on Windows XP/2000/NT, you can take a look at a third-party product - PortsLock developed by SmartLine Inc.
