  1. Very late addition to this discussion, but thought I'd toss it in for future reference. Unencrypted email is permitted, given certain caveats. From HHS: http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/faq/health_information_technology/570.html Excerpt: Does the HIPAA Privacy Rule permit health care providers to use e-mail to discuss health issues and treatment with their patients? Answer: Yes. The Privacy Rule allows covered health care providers to communicate electronically, such as through e-mail, with their patients, provided they apply reasonable safeguards when doing so. See 45 C.F.R. § 164.530©. For example, certain precautions may need to be taken when using e-mail to avoid unintentional disclosures, such as checking the e-mail address for accuracy before sending, or sending an e-mail alert to the patient for address confirmation prior to sending the message. Further, while the Privacy Rule does not prohibit the use of unencrypted e-mail for treatment-related communications between health care providers and patients, other safeguards should be applied to reasonably protect privacy, such as limiting the amount or type of information disclosed through the unencrypted e-mail. In addition, covered entities will want to ensure that any transmission of electronic protected health information is in compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule requirements at 45 C.F.R. Part 164, Subpart C.
  2. The FTPeek docs are silent on being able to specify a specific port. Is there any way to use the flag parameters to specify a non-standard port? FTPeek_ConnectSFTP( host ; publicKey ; username ; password { ; flag1 ; flag2 ; ... } )
  3. I played around with nagios a bit a couple of years ago. Had to cook up a plugin to talk to FileMaker server, but it worked well. The server had to be re-formatted, but I think I could re-create the plugin without too much trouble. I had it so it could list open files, the number of open files, and some other things. For example, if a file was supposed to be closed (i.e. for maintenance or revision) but was open, it could notify you.
