    Hi, Frederic,:)
    If I remove iexplorer.exe from application list of LnS and start it to open an URL, a popup will jump out and I select 'just this time' and allow it. However, there will be several (~5-7) popups asking my verdict of iexplorer.
    So, my question:
    Why are there so many occurences of popups when I select 'just this time'? (i.e., what's the definition of 'this time' of LnS?)
    Does LnS prompt every process of the tcp hand-shaking?
    thanks in advance.

    Hi nuser,

    Look 'n' Stop checks for the authorization each time the application creates a socket.
    If you select "Just this time", you will get the prompt each time a socket is created.

    Regards,

    Frederic

    thanks a lot, Frederic,:thumb:
    May I am wrong: to my very limited knowledge of socket, there are only 2 'socket creating' events when browsing a website (for DNS and the webserver). Why does LnS prompt 5 times when I open google.com with iexplorer.exe?
    I am sorry to insist, since this is somehow out of the topic of LnS firewall.:blink:

    Also sometimes several DNS requests are sent to different DNS servers.
