Web Confidential 3.0.4 for Mac OS X and Mac OS 9 - Spanish version

Web Confidential is the most powerful password manager on the Mac today.
It organizes passwords and protects them with industrial strength
encryption. It is also available for Windows and Palm operating systems.

"Version 3 is the best release of Web Confidential so far. It runs fully
native on Mac OS X and Mac OS 9. I never thought that I could port
Shared Menus to Mac OS X, but thanks to Apple's outstanding support
of the Component Manager on Mac OS X, it proofed possible. This means
that thanks to Shared Menus, you have access to your passwords via
a Shared Menu right in your browser's menu bar.", said Alco Blom.

These are the main features of Web Confidential for Mac:

Encryption : Industrial strength encryption (using BlowFish)
Automation : Automatic entry of WWW Forms and automatic HTTP Authentication
Integration : Access to your passwords in your browser and from the Dock
Synchronization : Synchronization with your Palm via a Conduit
Cross-platform : Binary compatible with Web Confidential for Windows

Other new features:

Password Generator : Generate random passwords and WEP keys easily
Dock Menus : Have access to all your passwords via the Mac OS X Dock
Help Book : A full reference manual right onder the Help menu

Web Confidential is 22 Euro shareware.

Requirements: Mac OS X or Mac OS 9.

Subject: AirPort KeyChainLib error

I downloaded and installed AirPort 2.0.2 on my G4 PowerBook with Mac
OS 9.2.2, ran the AirPort Admin Utility, and it loaded new software
onto the base station. Everything works.

Then I did the same thing on my friend's G3 PowerBook with MacOS 9.1.
The new AirPort Admin Utility won't run, saying it can't find
KeyChainLib. If I try to run the KeyChain control panel (which my
friend has never used), it also fails, saying it can't find

I reinstalled 9.1 to no avail. I also searched for KeyChainLib on
both Macs and found nothing.

Any advice?

Also, the reason for upgrading the G3 PB is that the base station
modem seems to be acting flaky. Connections are lost, passwords are
garbled, etc. If we switch to the internal PowerBook modem
everything works fine. Has anyone experienced such problems with an
AirPort base station? It's the original model.

This is interesting, very much the reverse of most problems. I assume the
logon and password are the you use the "Save Password" option?

I gather you are using Eudora - what are your settings?
Checking Mail: Are you using POP, APOP, KERBEROS, etc.
Sending Mail: Allow authorization

One option might be to try creating a complete new set of settings. Keep a
copy of your old ones, but start from scratch and create a new set.

I recently (a few days ago) went through the EXACT same thing on my
Quicksilver G4. After lots of advice (none of which worked). I re-installed
Stuffit Deluxe. Don't ask me why, but everything is fine now.
