    You would first need to click on "Questions" (1), and then on "How to import..." (2). Look at the screenshot -

    From my point of view it is not needed. But I'll let Fred comment on that.

    The ruleset improves on LooknStop filtering by utilizing packet parameters not already covered by standard and enhanced rulesets. The end result is functionally very similar but much more granular (tighter/safer/whatever) ruleset.
    Common services are covered (http(s), DNS, DHCP, NetBIOS, NTP), but if you have anything specific (such as a server app or an app that uses unusual comms) then you would need to set the rules by yourself.

    It is easy to create rules by looking at the logs. If anything gets blocked, you just need to r-click on a blocked log entry and select "add server/client (inbound/outbound) rule".
    If you have difficulties, post the log here.

    Yes, I saw your other thread, but I did not know what to say. LnS drivers are signed, and the warning should not be there.

    If it warns with 2.07, I assume it'll do the same with older builds. But if you wish to try anyway, I uploaded v2.06p4 (previous stable) and PMed you with the link.

    This may very well be the source of your issues with LnS driver. You should devise a backup strategy, if not for the entire system, then at least for the registry.

    v2.06p4 works great , no warning , thank a lot


    well i can't make a backup for the software
    about the registry , what backup it , and restore the next moths? could be worse
    i think the look'n'stop devolper should release a cleaner
    i mean at least , a minimum of support

    You're welcome. Just take a look at this post for a quick check on version differences.

    Well, in the FAQ section, there are instructions on what to do if a driver is not removed after uninstalling (Windows 2000 and XP). You have to do everything manually of course, but that's looknstop for ya.

    Hi Mantra,

    It is very strange you didn't get the same problem with the 2.06p4.
    The driver installation is supposed to be exactly the same.

    Note that you can now update to the 2.07. The driver is already installed (bound to internal windows network stacks), and the update just consists in replacing the lnsfw.sys file without doing the full installation.

    Regards,

    Frederic

    The application filtering is very simple in Look 'n' Stop (no question about port, IP...), you just have to click Block or Allow, once per application.
    That's why a learning mode is not really necessary.

    Regards,

    Frederic

    What do you mean by "making a clean install" ?
    If the problem was just the Windows Logo certification warning (the other post). No cleanup could avoid this dialog box.

    Are you talking about security software in general ? and upgrading from one security software to another one (different vendor I mean) ?
    There is normally no issue for Look 'n' Stop updates, as I said, it is just updating some files that are already installed.

    Regards,

    Frederic
