    Hello Everyone

    This is only too frustrating....First we checked the Homepage then the FAQ pages listed here in the forum and also checked help file within program.

    We want to create a simple rule for Windows Explorer to be able to access the internet with only one protocol and at only one address. Is this possible? If so the "how to do it" is not intuitive and not found easily.

    BTW - Windows Explorer needs to parse a website to gather weather information to display in an icon on the desktop. It works just fine but we want to limit Windows Explorer to only access this one site via one protocol.

    Thank you for your assistance. BTW - this is only a short-term trial to see how LnS works. We have to free version.

    Thank you for the attempted help but upon reviewing the above reference we found even more of the non-intuitiveness.

    So it seems this program/FW is only for very advanced users. No easy solution for a firsttime user (re:initial inquiry). There is no doubt that it functions well. The problem is configuration.

    In the Log tab we highlighted a line that had Windows Explorer and clicked on Create rule. Nothing happened. Also we do not seem to be able to figure out how to show which url any given application goes to.

    Yea, I believe I understand completely what you are wanting to-do…
    Look ‘n’ Stop currently doesn’t have proper Application Controls; I mean it doesn’t allow you to configure IP & Port specifications to apply for Trusted Application. Look ‘n’ Stop v2.05 the upcoming release will contain Application Controls…

    In Addition; To control Application packets you’ll have to-do it through Internet Filtering Layer which applies at a global scale…

    To see IP Addresses, you view Log screen. Anything which is configured up with warning Flag you’ll see Packet Entries; Listed under "Address / Application" column will be Named & IP Addresses To/From the Remote Computers…

    Perhaps a screenshot will be useful. Where is the Warning flag switch?

    Hi,

    Application Control in upcoming version? :eek: Sounds promissing. That is something I wouldn't feel safe without. That's why I am not using LooknStop yet.

    Do You have any other insider info about upcoming LooknStop version?

    Yours,
    HSandor

    Hey HSandor

    This really falls towards Privacy then Security issue, if you don’t trust an Application than you shouldn’t be using it. That’s probably why “Rule-base Application Filtering” Feature hadn’t been implemented before hand.

    However, I’d admit it will be an awesome Enhancement to Look ‘n’ Stop for people like me who doesn’t trust much stuff we use which mainly I download from underground sites, so I usually expect the worse.

    If I did have any other insider info that would be classified now wouldn’t it? :p

    When Frederic is ready and there is more to it then he will officially annoyance, until then you’ll have to wait quietly… shhHHHHHH ;P
