    Why does LnS need access to the internet even if I have the option to check for upgrades unchecked? o_O

    Other sw fw I have tried have never asked for access.

    LNS is using internet access for DNS resolution, so you can easily identify blocked packets in your logs including its corresponding web address.

    You could block it though.... but I allow it, since I do trust my firewall ;)

    Or perhaps they allow themselves without notifying the user ;)
    I would be surprised they don't include DNS resolution in logs.
