    The addresses shown are cdn for content delivery and analytics. You sure the connections are from this?

    If you have any hosts in rules, sw have dns query to get ip address of host.

    latest v.2.0.18
    windows 7 sp1

    the only custom rule
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <root>
        <item name="185.48.240.208" rule="185.48.240.208" dir="0" protocol="0" version="0" apps="%SystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe" is_block="true" is_enabled="false" />
    </root>
    
    the thing is if i don't allow SW to connect it will terminate(there is no log or even windows crash file) and it will connect anyhow to those address when its not allowed to connect in SW

    yes sure

    Possible Bug in v.2.0.18

    Dropped Packets Log > Show log

    This actually opens the notepad.exe file itself - as a binary file inside the text editor.

    Fixed in v.19 - Thanks

    Q: How do we "set custom dns ipv4 server ("DnsServerV4" in .ini)" ?

    What does this feature do exactly ?

    Mmmmm, it sets custom dns server for domain names resolution, only ipv4 support (default: windows internal)

    Thanks, I already use custom internal DNS so I do not need to change anything.

    Sorry if this question has already been asked.
    In your FAQ you wrote that the user has to disable Windows Firewall because Windows Firewall filters have high priority.
    Since now Microsoft seems to be against this, what if you keep Windows Firewall enabled and just delete all in and out rules, as well as allowed application from control panel?

    You're so bored about annoying popups in systray with "WF are disabled blah-blah-blah" messages?

    Not tested.

    Lately, simplewall zip file contains these files only:
    Code:
    History.txt
    License.txt
    Readme.txt
    simplewall.exe
    simplewall.ini
    simplewall.sig
    
    i18n\!example.txt
    i18n\Chinese (Simplified).ini
    i18n\Dutch.ini
    i18n\Finnish.ini
    i18n\French.ini
    i18n\German.ini
    i18n\Hungarian.ini
    i18n\Korean.ini
    i18n\Persian.ini
    i18n\Polish.ini
    i18n\Portuguese (Brazilian).ini
    i18n\Portuguese.ini
    i18n\Russian.ini
    i18n\Spanish.ini
    
    blocklist.xml, blocklist_full.xml, rules_config.xml, rules_custom.xml and rules_system.xml are no longer included. Are they deprecated or something?
    Is still apps.xml needed?
