    The new version of Outpost does not filter loopback, so unless I manually create rules for WebGuard, Outpost silently blocks WebGuard and Firefox can't use the internet. What rules should I use?

    i currently using OFP 6.7 along avira premium, on my first upgrade 6.5 to 6.7 i get issue same like your problem, so now the problem disappear, two way for resolved that :
    (just one details, during the installation of OFP i don't install WEBGUARD AND ANTISPYWARE cause Avira premium do the job).

    - you can modify the machine.ini but is not recommended.

    - If you install OFP 6.7 first in auto-learning mode and after AVP, the Webguard rule is automatically create and you get full access to the internet with all browsers.

    Rules
    OFP 6.7
    AVP 9
    PREVX EDGE
    KEYSCRAMBLER PRO
    AVG LINKSCANNER

    thats what i did, i installed in learning mode, restarted the system, let it learn all my startup programs and security software on its own, then turned off learning mode and tada, everything works perfectly.

    Thanks, all - I can try installing in learning mode since modifying machine.ini didn't work.
