Re: Exact definition of "Local Network" in rule destinations?

Thanks for all the answers! :-) It's all clear now.
If you've time, maybe you could add them (your answers) to the description of the builtin local network rule. Or to the section in help describing the creation of new rules (the local network rule destination is mentioned there if I remember right).

Re: Exact definition of "Local Network" in rule destinations?

I was wondering how Little Snitch interprets the "Local Network" selection in the destination server of a rule? Local Network dynamically adapts to your network settings. One example: IP-Address: 192.168.001.070 Netmask: 255.255.255.000 (0xffffff00) Local Network: 192.168.001.000 - 192.16...

Re: Logfile

The option for a logfile seems essential for debugging an app like this and I cannot really imagine the development of LS without the ability to log connection alerts and approval/deny events. Since logging is not available in the public version, I guess it's only enabled in the debug builds used du...

Re: Default rule for "loginwindow" allows any connection

Never mind. Now I see that there're lots of default (protected) rules allowing full network access to various OS X services. Apparently LS applies an "opt-out" strategy (it causes less problems for users if the default rules are more permissive). Then I'll just set whatever I see fit. Sorr...

Default rule for "loginwindow" allows any connection

It seems to be a bit of an overkill to give full network access to the localwindow app by default. I'm not familiar with the protocols used during Mac OS X network user logins, but I guess the process uses at most only a few ports (if it's not just a single TCP port). It'd be even better if if this ...

Re: Exact definition of "Local Network" in rule destinations?

Btw. the description of the "local IPv6 network" rule (in the previously mentioned info panel) is more to the point. It says: "IP Address: fe80::/10"

Re: Exact definition of "Local Network" in rule destinations?

Found a bit more info about this by hitting the "Info" button in the top-right corner of the Little Snitch Configuration app. An info panel slided out to the right of the window and clicking on a (protected) rule shows a description in the info panel. For the "Allow connections to loc...

Exact definition of "Local Network" in rule destinations?

Hi! I was wondering how Little Snitch interprets the "Local Network" selection in the destination server of a rule? I could easily imagine multiple interpretations. Eg. (looking only at IPv4 addresses) 127.0.0.0/8 ... or including 169.254.0.0/16 ... or including all private IP ranges (10.0...
