    I was wondering, If Sygate fixed the problem with proxymotrin(spelling?) Yet, or not? and if its safe to use?

    Hi Comp01

    As the post BlitzenZeus referred to suggests, the loopback issue is still present in the latest version of Sygate.

    As to whether it is safe to use, that depends on how important application control is to you. In this particular case, anything using localhost via a proxy to access the Internet. For those users wanting full control over loopback rules and access, they may want to consider something other than Sygate.

    Regards,
