Forum member “TheWiz” aka Chris has released his first Windows Home Server Add-In to the community, it’s called Microsoft Security Essentials Notifer for Windows Home Server (MSEN for short), and uses the Windows Home Server notification system to inform you when various actions occur with Security Essentials on your Home Server or your client PCs. Here is the author’s description of the Add-In.
Microsoft Security Essentials Notifier is an Add-In designed for Windows Home Server. Its purpose is to enhance the user experience of those using Microsoft Security Essentials to protect their server. With the new 2.0 beta of Security Essentials running on WHS v1, this Add-In allows you to receive notifications to your client computers of definition updates, scans on your hard disk, and detected malware.
*Instant notification to clients when Security Essentials has new information.
*Hassle-Free install and no configuration required.
*Status reports without opening your console or using RDP.
Note that this will work well with my Remote Notification Add-In to forward the alerts from MSEN to your email or mobile phone.
Visit the MapleGrove Partners website to read more and download the Add-In. Chris is requesting feedback and offering support here in the MediaSmartServer.net forums so stop by to let him know what you think of the Add-In and offer up any suggestions for future improvements.
