    One other question that I had is whether or not there is a "logging only" type of mode in which connections are not actually blocked, but simply logged. This would mainly be for creating some rules in the beginning for me. Does simplewall have something like this?

    no don't have only log mode and allow everything(block selected mode should have such option:doubt:). but have dropped packet notification which prompt you so you can create rule for app.
    you can create custom rule in setting.if its ip then even no need GUI of simplewall to be running.
    but if you create host rule like www.google.com
    the GUI should be running to block request

    @co22 OK, that dropped packet notification should be sufficient. Thank you! :thumb:

    Now over 6 months with SimpleWall, I have been quiet because there are no problems. v2.2.2

    One suggestion/question:

    Can there be an option to make the "Exit" button minimize to tray - and not really Exit the program ?

    There's already one. Just click "x" top right corner main interface or "_" (minimize).

    That`s what I always forget and every time click the exit button - it seems I can`t remember to do it, even after such a long time ;)

    Applications often have the option to "Exit to tray" and so asked if it would be a possiblity.

    Is latest stable version 2.1.4 working well with Spring Creator's update?

    Personally I'd remove the Exit button from the main menu altogether and put it inside "File" option. But I'm fine with your idea too. Close instead of exit.

    Perhaps this means that settings can be dropped reverted to default settings.

    I think that`s most certainly it - I was having some kind of dyslexic moment before and couldn`t see beyond the words.

    Thanks.
