    I write software as a hobby using a program called REALbasic, and I test my applications very often. Every time I test one that needs to connect to the internet/network, my firewall warns me that it has changed and I need to grant it access again. As you can imagine, this gets old fast.

    I had the same problem with COMODO firewall when I used to use that, and a lot of people were having the same problem as me but there was no fix. Over on their forums, they called them "cryptographic signature checks".

    Is there anything I can do to get the firewall to completely ignore a certain file or directory of files that try to access the internet? :doubt:

    Hello arcooke,

    Open the tray icon, press f1 for help, and enter firewall. Look under application modification detection. There are some setting options you could try.
