Block domain for all except Safari...?

Postby tetsujin » Tue May 15, 2018 7:02 pm

I have a suite of apps that all like to phone home & I would like to prevent them from doing that.
The problem is they sneak under the radar somehow & it's hard to figure out which components are doing it.

That might be me being less than smart, however...

I occasionally need to look at that domain's web site, but don't want any of their apps to access it.

Is there a way to set a rule that
"All processes are blocked"
but
"Safari can connect" ?

It appears that the global 'all processes Deny' is invoked **before** the individual 'Allow'. I tried lifting the priority for Safari, but LS tells me that's 'unnecessary'.

It should work the way you mentioned.
I just added a block rule for all processes for a specific hostname and and an allow rule for google chrome and that hostname. Both with normal priority and it works as you would want it to.
