    I have paltalk messenger and I set a rule for it in my PC Tools firewall with these settings: protocol:TCP port:80 direction:eek:utband. This rule will prevent ads from paltalk.After installing avira with web guard which act as a local proxy this rule no longer work because the traffic goes first to web guard and then to firewall which will allow all outbound traffic from webguard. I found that for outbound http the traffic goes like this:
    application ---> webguard ---> firewall ---> internet.
    Is there any workaround to make my firewall rule work again?
    I tried avast with its web shield, it works fine and the rule works as it should be.
