Norton Internet Security (NIS) and Post command failure

Good news.  Norton Internet Security 2002 (NIS) now seems to work OK with
the latest version of MetaCard (2.5 Beta 4) under Win XP Pro with the latest
XP service pack installed (posted sometime between Tuesday night and this
morning, Friday).  I just reinstalled NIS today to do this testing and so
can't tell you at what MC version or XP service pack that things started
working.  Disclaimer: I'm not an expert on these matters and there are so
many combinations of settings, many of which I haven't tried, that "seems to
work" is the best I can say.
