Advanced Application Monitor Rules for Proxomitron / Firefox and IE included.
Note: The default proxy configuration to use Proxomitron is 127.0.0.1:8080
Always restart your system after removing rules from the Application Monitor!
Application: Destination: Port: Protocol: Permission:
cpfupdate.exe 127.0.0.1 8080 TCP OUT Allowed
firefox.exe 127.0.0.1 1000-5000 TCP IN Allowed
firefox.exe 127.0.0.1 1000-5000 TCP OUT Allowed
iexplore.exe 127.0.0.1 8080 TCP OUT Allowed
iexplore.exe 127.0.0.1 1000-5000 UDP IN Allowed
proxomitron.exe 127.0.0.1 8080 TCP IN Allowed
proxomitron.exe 127.0.0.1 1000-5000 TCP OUT Allowed
proxomitron.exe [ANY] IN[80,443,8080,] TCP Out Allowed
proxomitron.exe (YourDNS-IP) 53 UDP OUT Allowed (Optional)
Notice how Loopback rules differ from ordinary rules.
A lot of inappropriate sites may use other ports such as 81,82,8000, or 8090.
You can also block these ports if you wish, but you may also be blocking access
to some good sites too. If you also want to block certain ports from Proxomitron,
then add a rule simular to this:
proxomitron.exe [ANY] IN[81,82,8000,8090,] TCP Out Block (or Ask)
Firefox connects to the internet differently than most other browsers.
If you use a proxy configuration in Internet Explorer, many other applications
can auto detect proxy settings from IE.
The port range size 1000-5000 may have to be adjusted or set to if neeeded.
(It depends on the application and how much you surf the internet.)
With these rules in place, you should not be prompted for Proxomitron rules
if you have the Skip Loopback options turned off.
