Re: Little Snitch itself phones home!

I think it would be prudent for you to post some screenshots, logs or ANYTHING so that we know what you're talking about.

Re: Little Snitch itself phones home!

Paranoid much? Or give us a way to prove it ourselves. You obviously didn't even bother trying because there are ways. They're called network analysis tools (informally packet sniffers) and you can find free software that will do this. Obdev is simply putting a product out there and they don't owe y...

Re: Little Snitch itself phones home!

The developers from Objective Development keep their eyes on places like MacSerialJunkies and quickly blacklist any pirated serials that show up and put out a "silent update" of LS Even silent updates would require an outgoing internet connection from LS. But if folks only updated LS manu...

Re: Block subdomains?

Sounds like there is no easy way to implement even simple traffic filtering, due to the non-exclusive relationship between IPs and hostnames. However, I think the wildcard feature would still be useful. For example, sites that don't use IP pools, and for sites where you don't care if other services ...

Re: Block subdomains?

Yup that's true.

Whenever there's a conflict, you could have a dialog pop-up saying "the rule you are creating would conflict with an existing rule xxxxxx". However, as has been said, the user would be overwhelmed with constant dialog boxes. Tough call...

Re: Block subdomains?

In regards to the conflicts, why not have one option in the preferences that says "In case of conflict: Allow or Deny" ?

Re: Block subdomains?

The devs are correct about the IP pool problem. I know that at least once, I have tried to block certain sites I didn't want, and ended up blocking some service I DO want. This is especialy true when you use ranges (ex. 12.34.0.0/16) to block whole swaths of IP's. I am wondering if there's a way for...

Re: Block subdomains?

So there's no way to block traffic coming from a certain host name? In other words, if 2 pieces of data come from googleads.com and google.com, and they resolve to the same IP, there's no way for LS to distinguish between the two?

Re: Block subdomains?

avenirphoto, people here are asking serious questions, and you're just spewing nonsense. I think everyone here would like to pop you one in the head right now.

I just tried running Apple software update, and LS blocked it just fine.

Beat it.
