    Came across this tip over at Sandboxie's forum and it seems to work ok in blocking leaktest.exe.

    SnDPhoenix forgot about \Device\Tcp, \Device\Udp and \Device\RawIp

    Well it seems SnDPhoenix knew exactly what you meant.

    Not only have I rid myself of blacklists I may even be able to get rid of my firewall for outbounds as I have a hardware firewall!;)

    What I donĀ“t understand is why some people are already saying they will dump their firewall because of this, seems a bit silly to me, I mean, this setting only controls sandboxed processes. And a standalone firewall will do the exact same thing anyways.

    PC Tools firewall is gone from here Rasheed as I have a hardware firewall.

    All I needed was outbounds for MS phoning home and running media player sandboxed stops as such.

    Tried those 19 leaktests and Sandboxie with the extra ini settings seemed to contain all of them.
