two feature suggestions

Post by sasquatch » Tue May 01, 2007 11:30 am

1) Time limits. e.g.: it's often easiest to just allow an application full access for a period of time but then shut off it's Internet supply. It would be nice to be able to say "allow Safari all network access for 5 min, 15min, etc.

2) allow by top level domain NAME! It's tedious saying YES to 300 request to allow access to server&port for g329d.google.com, g329e.google.com, g329f.google.com.... etc.

It would be even more spiffy to be able to combine the two:

"Ok, allow Safari access to google.com for 5 min. then NO MORE!" ;-)

Yes, please, the ability to create/edit Rules to allow for all machines within a specified domain would be soooooooo helpful!

Just create a rule to allow (or deny) access to "*.google.com"

At least, that's what I've been doing and it works great.

I hope LS does FCrDNS in that case (link), otherwise it's a security hole.
