"Deny forever"?

Post by Sapote » Thu Sep 13, 2007 6:28 am

What is the consequence of selecting "deny forever" to a request to connect?

Does it mean that all future requests for this connection will be denied AND that I will never again know that the connection was requested and denied?

Mightn't that be inconvenient, or cause unexplained failures?

For your last question: compared to the PITA that is clicking deny each time, it's not so hard to just know to check your LS rules when you do have an issue with a site/app.
