    Hi,

    I installed safety.net a couple of days ago and it works fine ... but:
    After each reboot of my computer safety.net looses the correct setting of the internet and the LAN-adapters.

    The correct setting for my internet-adapters is:
    1. unchecked: D-Link 530 PCI-Ethernetadapter
    2. checked: AVM Fritz!web PPP over ISDN (explanation: software-router with NAT for gateway-functionality, connected to my ISDN-Adapter, works like a WAN-Miniport and uses its own IP: 192.xxx.xxx.xxx)
    3. checked: WAN-Miniport (IP)
    For the LAN-adapter:
    1. checked: D-Link 530 PCI-Ethernetadapter
    2. unchecked: AVM Fritz!web PPP over ISDN
    3. unchecked: WAN-Miniport

    These settings are saved by using the "Apply"-button.

    After each reboot of my computer safety.net automatically changes these settings to:
    Internet-adapter:
    1. unchecked: D-Link 530 PCI-Ethernetadapter
    2. checked: AVM Fritz!web PPP over ISDN
    3. unchecked: WAN-Miniport
    LAN-adapter:
    1. checked: D-Link 530 PCI-Ethernetadapter
    2. unchecked: AVM Fritz!web PPP over ISDN
    3. checked: WAN-Miniport

    Therefor my computer is not protected, when I use the WAN-Miniport for internet-connections, because safety.net handles this adapter as a (trusted) LAN-adapter.

    Is there any way to force safety.net to keep my correct settings?

    Thanks for help, Phileas

    I was playing around with NV last week and got to a state where I could not change internet adapter/LAN settings, or at least I could but it would not keep them.

    I lost interest and reverted to Kerio 2. However you could try uninstalling, cleaning the registry of anything lingering and re-install. This time setting up the settings you need first time.

    Let us know if this works.

    Hello David,

    according to your suggestion, I uninstalled safety.ned, cleaned the registry manually, rebooted and reinstalled the software. Now the adapter-settings were kept.

    The only thing I changed during the installation process: I configured the adapter-settings immediately after installing safety.net (before clicking OK for rebooting the machine). Perhaps it makes a difference.

    Thanks for help, Phileas

    I used Kerio 2.15 too before I installed safety.net. You should uninstall Kerio completely (not only disable) before installing safety.net. In my case it didn't work properly, when I only disabled Kerio.
