I am using the VB editor that is included in Reflections to create a better interface.  Some of my users are getting an error message that simply states "Out of Memory" I am trying to clarify is this referring to the physical memory in the machine, or is there something that I am doing wrong in the coding that would cause this.  Thanks!

Hi stewartje,
>My company is using the Firebox III 700.  I have never used it before.  
> How can I tell what users are doing?  
You can only tell what users are doing if they log in to the firebox security using the supplied java app. Then you can simply watch the firebox logs.
> My boss is concerned with the security.  
> Can I show him something that would indicate I am blocking the bad traffic?
Yes, run any of the log reports and print it for him.
> Can I administer this box from home using the control center software?  Or is there a better way.
Yeeesss?? But you'll be controlling a security gateway from it's untrusted network! That is if you are doing it over the Internet as opposed to a dedicated dial-in circuit.
> Does anyone know how to setup VPN with it.
Noooo.. not exactly, we needed to be shown by the support guys who installed it. we got all our requred vpns set up then. Could be asking the same question if we get a new employee requiring vpn access.

Cheers! Alan

Sorry Gideonn, was trying out quickpost, and it changed the message focus whilst I was entering my reply. It got attached to the wrong question.

Gideonn, your problem could be a combination of both physical memory lack and coding problems.

Make sure your app specifically declares variables instead of using variants.  For example, if variable iCount is to be used as an integer, declare it so:

dim iCount as Integer

as opposed to
dim iCount

The second way will declare it as a variant and eat 8 bytes instead of 2.  Also, if you create an object, make sure you get rid of it.  For example, if you open a recordset:

dim RStest as new Adodb.Recordset
dim SQL as String
....
SQL = "select * from blahblah,etc."
call setRS(RStest,SQL)  ' I use a common function to open all recordsets - makes error trapping a lot easier

' before exiting
set rsTest = nothing
exit Sub

That sort of thing will really help manage spurious memory usage.
