Not sure if anyone can explain this behaviour:
Here is my application filtering screen:
now I start up an application 'Digiguide' and this box comes up, to which I click Authorise:
and then this box, which I also click Authorise:
Finally my app screen looks like this, but why does the second entry down 'Client Code' which I selected Authorise have a Blocked icon? (in fact since installing the latest copy of LooknStop I've not actually said 'Block' to any program - apart from Raxco Update - and yet there are others in the list also blocked).
Basically, if one program starts another (but in-itself does not connect to the internet) why is it in the list?
The same entry in the list manages the direct connection and the authorization to start another application that will connect.
So there is no other choice to put a default state for the direct connection, when adding an entry to the list.
The same is done on the opposite side when allowing an application to connect: automatically this application is allowed to start another application that will connect.
To avoid this behaviour, the list should be separated in two distinct lists (one for direct connections, one for applications starting another one) but the GUI will be more complicated, I think.
Many thanks for the explanation Frederic.
Without introducing yet another tab the gui would indeed become too complex.
Separate names with a comma.
