    Today i had my ZA FW on Stop All Activity & Engage Internet Lock, as i had been installing something. I forgot the Stop/Lock was still on, & launched my Internet Connection. I then unlocked my FW, launched FF & went to a www. I then realised that i hadn't seen the normal GHP alert asking for out permission. I presume it was due to the Stop/Lock being on.

    What i'm wondering is, how does it connect out, Without my permission, ?

    EDIT - Added "Unlocked FW"

    I think is because svchost exe is a group of processes used by many authorized applications

    Hi & thanks for posting :thumb: Be nice if svchost could be configured on a per instance basis :) If anyone knows a way/s to achieve that = :thumb:

    What is GHP? (sorry I don't have ZA, I used to)
    The screen shot is of svchost. I presume FF is Firefox. If so, what settings?
    What do you you mean by "launched my internet connection"? starting Firefox?

    Hi.

    As in my screenie = Generic Host Process

    Yes = GHP

    Which exactly are you referring to ?

    I never allow my modem to connect automatically, only when i'm ready to. Then i go to my network connections & double click my dial up icon & it launches my connection gui for me to click to connect out.
