Does Little Snitch 2 upgrade version 1? Are settings kept?

Post by hlstahl » Mon Apr 05, 2010 1:53 pm

Is Version 2 of Little Snitch an upgrade to Version 1? Will the allow/deny setting be carried over to version 2, or do I start again with setting things up?

This is a silly way to have to ask technical support questions!

Thanks

Little Snitch 2 is an upgrade (in terms of functionality), but it does not carry over your allow/deny rules from version 1.

Thanks for the response, but that is a shame that you do not carry the entries into the next version/format. It is usually rather easy to translate lists from one format to another. But, well, it is a useful piece of software nevertheless.

I kvethched over this for a long while, but found out it wasn't NEAR as painful as I thought it would be. Sometimes a fresh start can be good, as I was a LOTY smarter how I created rules when I had to re-do them... so I am covered as well as before, but have a LOT less rules to deal with.

One can usually do better a second time, so such eforts aqre often not futile, but having a choice might not be the worst! Still, thank you for your response.

Exactly. See my posting from about a year ago:
