Well my first post and I hope this is the right Forum. I use WAMP on my XP desktop to test Joomla! add-ons and scripts; as well as other php scripts before I upload to the WWW and go live. I currently use KIS but am considering Comodo. Anyway, I installed a trial addon to J! that required a 'key' from the developer and thought that KIS would alert me to the outgoing connection that the add-on was making to verify the key; but it didn't/can't. I've considered VMWare and Returnil, but am not sure how a VM works so that I would be alerted to outgoing connections from a script. Any solutions appreciated.
