Change order of Little Snitch and AntiVirus network ordering?

Post by mcgroarty » Mon Mar 05, 2018 10:15 pm

I would like to run AntiVirus software that includes firewall features.

I tested Kaspersky and Avast, but both of them take control of traffic before it reaches Little Snitch. As a result, Little Snitch sees virtually all outbound traffic as coming from the antivirus network proxy program. I can't permit specific kinds of traffic only to or from specific programs. I can only use Little Snitch to set policies for the AV proxy. In other words, adding the AV proxy means the AV proxy masks the originating application.

Thus, currently traffic follows this route:
App <--> AntiVirus Network Proxy <--> Little Snitch <--> Network interface

Is it possible to switch the positions of the the AV proxy and Little Snitch?
