Re: Block All IP Ranges For Entire Country

@koppenhoefer: I don't know your situation there, or if this is something you are planning to do on your personal machine. But if it is, I think that by taking the route you have described, you are going to end up shooting yourself in the foot. Here is my reasoning: Like most computer users, you pro...

Re: Block All IP Ranges For Entire Country

@koppenhoefer: I wish I could help, but I never did figure out a viable solution to the China blocking in Little Snitch. In fact, I finally took down my BBS quite a while ago after running it on and off since 1993. I think I was the very last PC-ANSI based Macintosh BBS who was still hanging on. I u...

Re: Block All IP Ranges For Entire Country

@koppenhoefer: Are you saying that your last entry above will effectively block millions of IP addresses JUST FROM CHINA? That certainly seems like overkill.

Re: Block All IP Ranges For Entire Country

Here is an update to my previous post . . . As it turns out, adding all of China's IP ranges as a comma delimited list in just one rule is NOT blocking all of the bots. I am wondering if it may have something to do with the fact that Little Snitch is compacting the IP ranges that I enter. For exampl...

Re: Block All IP Ranges For Entire Country

Thank you Dweeb and Hagen for your responses. I am having a little trouble wrapping my head around CIDR Notation -- even though I read the Wikipedia page concerning it -- so instead, I just copied and pasted all of the IP ranges for China as a comma separated list into Little Snitch. The next step i...

Block All IP Ranges For Entire Country

I know that this issue has been discussed a number of times before in this forum, but as far as I know, and unless I missed it, to date, no permanent solution has been offered yet. A little history . . . I use the SheepShaver emulator in order to run my old Macintosh, telnet-accessible Hermes II BBS...

Re: Little Snitch + El Capitan DP8+ = Broken Localhost Connections

MajorFusion, the aforementioned issues between El Capitan and Little Snitch have indeed been resolved. Not only is my MAMP PRO installation working perfectly again as it did before the release of El Capitan DP8 and the Golden Master, but the connection problems I was having with the App Store have a...

Re: Dealing with a plethora of dialogues.

I concur with other commenters here that there is clearly room for improvement insofar as multiple, repetitive, similar alert windows are concerned, which pile up on your screen if you are away from your computer. The suggestions for improvement which have been offered in previous comments here make...

Re: Network monitoring/extraction?

Here is an interesting confirmation regarding continuous packet capturing, which I just came upon while web surfing. According to Google Web Analytics Manager, Chris Le, Little Snitch's network sniffer ". . . will continue to capture the next time the process starts up." In other words, if...

Re: Network monitoring/extraction?

RLD, are you certain of this? It makes me wonder then why the feature is called "Network Monitor". To me, that clearly suggests network-wide monitoring. However, I admit that I could be wrong. It would be good if we could get a clear answer from the Objective Development team. Even if that...

Re: Network monitoring/extraction?

To clarify, as far as I know, apps such as Little Snitch, WireShark and Cocoa Packet Analyzer can only capture LIVE data streams. In other words, I don't believe that those programs can capture static data that is ALREADY stored on your machine. In short, for example, for him to capture your incomin...

Re: Network monitoring/extraction?

Whoah! Heavy issue here! I don't want to step on anyone's toes, or be the cause of a domestic dispute; so what I provide here is for informational purposes only. Since you asked specifically regarding the abilities of Little Snitch, if a LS user opens the LS Network Monitor, he or she will see a lis...

Thanks For Fixing Localhost/127.0.0.1 and App Store Connection Problems

I know that a lot of negative comments appear on this forum when things go wrong with Little Snitch, and it doesn't behave as we each expect. Thus, I just wanted to take a moment to publicly thank the Objective Development team for fixing the frustrating problems some of us -- particularly web serve...

Re: Process blocked even though permitted in LS rules

For what it is worth, not too long ago, I had a very similar situation to verbatim. I had purchased, and was attempting to enter the registration code, for a cool windowshade successor called Windowmizer. However, despite the fact that I checked and double checked to make sure that I had no rules to...
