    I have just installed Jetico and it all works fine. But I have a query on the way the Application / Ask User rules are created.

    For example. I look in the Web Browser (defaults) section and I see that only outbound connections are allowed. That's fine. So I run Firefox and get prompted to allow the process - which I do. Then I get prompted (a couple of times) to allow internet access. So I select "Handle as Web Browser". All works. When I go and look at the rules created in the Ask User section I can see the new rules for Firefox, but against the application the Event is "any" rather than "Outbound connection". I expected to see a duplicate of the Web Browser rule!

    Or am I missing something?

    The rule that is placed in the "ask user" (from the prompt=>your reply Handle as browser) is a jump to the Browser rules. (any event for that browser=> jump to browser rule)

    Thanks Stem.

    That makes sense (and it is what I would expect).
