    I thought I'd give the new Outpost Pro another try here and so far it's working fine. One question though... I had to disable the System Rule "Allow LocalHost UDP Connection" in order to get Outpost to ask about my time sync program. OP was blocking it without asking for some reason. When I disable this rule, then OP asks and creates a rule for Dimension 4 and all is well.

    I noticed however, that when I reboot, this System Rule is enabled again. So my disabling of it didn't take. It's ok, because now things work ok since I do have the time sync rule. Perhaps just a bug in OP that re-enables the rule upon reboot? Or perhaps this rule is necessary and OP re-enables it because it needs to?

    But does anyone know what this rule is for? I'm not sure I understand what it's used or needed for.
