Re: Skype has 45 servers

Always used to be that Skype was peer-peer network with no/few central servers. People running Skype client could become "servers" (the client would decide based on things like how long the computer remained on, network connection, etc.). Thus the "servers" would be routinely cha...

Re: Protected Rule Disabled and Keeps Re-Enabling

I've seen these rule changes on new or updated clones, but never on reboot or on MacIntosh HD. This is with OSX 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. I wonder if it's another 10.8.2-related problem. I don't know. I'm running on 10.8.2. I've just had App Store scanning and talking to Apple (and telling then god know...

Re: Protected Rule Disabled and Keeps Re-Enabling

Any news of a fix as I am now finding all sorts of stuff freely communicating that I had blocked. Sort of makes LS a waste of time as it is not blocking stuff I have set it to block. In fact worse because I think it is blocked and I am safe but in fact things are freely communicating because of this...

Protected Rule Disabled and Keeps Re-Enabling

I want my AppStore to have network communication disabled (so it has to ask me whenever it connects so I know what and why it is doing it (i.e. I only use AppStore for Software Updates and don't want it doing other stuff as and when it wants to). So, I find that for some reason the in-built AppStore...

Re: Incompatible with WakeOnLan?

I use WakeOnLan (occasionally) with LS3 and 10.8.2 and it works fine. In practice I only ever use it to wake a single computer, but the scan identifies a fair number (Airport Expresses, Time Capsules, Windows PC, etc.). Scan on running WakeOnLan is quick and completes fine (with everything I expect ...

Re: LittleSnitch 2.5.4 - Kernel panic 10.8.2

If you are getting Kernel crashes your logs should also include System Diagnostic logs. These will show the "process" that was executing when the system crashed (near the top) and loads of info below. There are issues that I believe are unrelated to LS causing crashes on resume from sleep....

Re: OSX 10.8.2 wake from sleep crash

I am having the same problem. Kernel panics immediately after wake from sleep. LS is the only 3rd party kext that is loaded. I've reinstalled ML and wiped/installed ML and the problems still persist. Several Genius Bar visits and log inspections all point to LS. Very frustrating. I am on my 3rd rMB...

Re: Little Snitch 101

I cannot advise, only say what I do (which others may say is wrong). I have no idea about a lot of the processes that ask about connections through LS. I am a bit paranoid about so many things connecting so ... when something asks and I am unsure if I have time I google the process (e.g. "Submi...

Re: Stop Incoming Emails from Connecting Back to Host Server?

In my Apple Mail you can enable/disable the automatic download of images in HTML messages. In Mail Preferences, select the Viewing icon/options and in there should be a check box that says "Display Remote images in HTML messages". If you disable the images, the message is displayed with &q...

Re: OSX 10.8.2 wake from sleep crash

Having the same problems. MBP (with Mountain Lion, LS3, etc.) often will not come out of sleep (just blank screen). Nothing does anything except holding down the power key - which sometimes prompts for the unlock password, sometimes prompts to log-in (user and password) and sometimes re-boots. LS cr...

Re: Define Local Network?

It sounds like you are using a different definition of "local network" to your computer. I can see that for you "local" means within a short walking distance (or maybe without going out in the rain). Unfortunately your computer does not appreciate things like where external walls...

Re: Is it possible to block pings ?

I use an Apple TM. Using non-Apple router but that is NOT the block as, if I ping Mac with LS3 from another computer within my LAN (i.e. not touching the ADSL router) then it the Mac is still unresponsive. If I ping e.g. a Windows computer with no ping-blocker (rarely switched on) then the ping wor...

Re: Is it possible to block pings ?

I have enabled "Stealth Mode" in the OS X built-in firewall (which I left enabled and had that confirmed as the recommended route here). So Stealth Mode enabled and no ICMP blocks in LS3 and I pass the "All Ports" test (i.e. all "stealth" (green). So whilst I do not kno...
