    First of all I'm not too familiar with firewalls :)
    I want a program, DCPFLICS, to connect to the internet but it won't. I've checked the application filtering list in Look 'n' Stop and the program is allowed but still it wont. However when I disable application filtering it works even no single application is set to block in my firewall. Are some programs hidden and if how can I detect them and allow them to connect. Like I said it's definitely the application filtering that does it. Not any other firewall. I want to keep application filtering on but then the program cannot connect to the internet. What to do?

    Thanks :)

    Application Filtering when in advanced mode, can block applications starting another application that will connect.

    Thanks a lot for the tip. Well it didn't work how I expected it to but it worked! I had to go in advance mode and then somehow it's able to connect again. I didn't even stay in advance mode but still it works.
    Thanks for the suggestion :)
