    Using NOD32 V3 with Outpost 4 went back from OP 2008
    Here is my question.

    Using Ping Plotter, also goes through the proxy so OP doesn't alert for net access.
    If everything goes through ekrn.exe how do I deny an application from outbound
    access ? There are times I want to deny a program outbound access.

    Or how do I know a program is even trying outbound access ?

    I feel like I am losing control here !!!

    See this thread for other thoughts. Some believe the proxy is not an issue. Others (like me) believe it's potentially a serious issue. https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=192305

    If Outpost can screen these other apps via a proxy, your answer probably lies at the Outpost Forum under how to setup filtering in conjunction with a local proxy.

    I agree with you Han - it's a serious as far as I'm concerned. I've left the filtering part to my specialist firewall program ZoneAlarm Pro 7.0.462.000 - consequently disabling the 'web access protection' as well as 'HTTP checking' features in the NOD V3. This boils down to individual preference - I've done it as I'm a firm believer in 'standalone' utilities & functions. Besides, I didn't want different programs to run into conflicts and/or consume limited CPU resources over the same function. BTW, my browsing speeds have improved a lot and images now load with zero failure.
