    Hi Team,

    I use a laptop at home running with Windows XP with a WIFI network card and and 10/100 Ethernet network card.

    My LnS 2.06 runs as a service using "C:\Program Files\Soft4Ever\looknstop\LnsSvc.exe" which in turn runs "C:\Program Files\Soft4Ever\looknstop\looknstop.exe" -auto -svc

    I set the LnS firefall on the WIFI network card as
    my the default network adaptor(the automatic Network selection box is unchecked). However I also have my 10/100 Ethernet network card connected to my DSL modem.

    I know that LnS can only handle one Network Interface Card (NIC) at a time, therefore if several NIC are used, then several instance of LnS must be run, and the
    automatic Network selection box should be unchecked.

    Now is there a way to run several instance of LnS as a Service as I would also protect my
    10/100 Ethernet card ?

    I tried to run "C:\Program Files\Soft4Ever\looknstop\looknstop.exe" -mult1 but it doesn't appear to run as a service, therefore it doesn't protect my laptop during the bootup.

    Thank you for any input on this matter.

    Cheers

    Gen. Noel


    BTW: Wouldn't it be a good idea to gather all the main answers in the Q&A section of the official LnS site as I need to browse through the entire forum every time I am looking for an advanced information ?

    Hi General Noel,

    Unfortunately the service will work only for the main instance of Look 'n' Stop. For the second instance, you can use only the System mode.

    The service mode will need anyway to be changed since it doesn't work under Vista. If a new version comes, we will see if it can handle several instances.

    Yes, you are right, it could be nice to extend the official Look 'n' Stop FAQ by gathering common answers from here. But it is not so easy to find out which questions & answer are coming very often.
    Except problems/questions related to rule creation because some packets were blocked, I don't have the impression to put very often the same answers here.
