I just replaced the configuration file and activated the MaxPro settings. Kindly see image. I have placed the Game.exe and the Stardefender.exe as Blocked Application. I also placed the host name in the Blocked zone
Upon exit it still connects to home.
I checked my other unit and observed how it behaved with the other firewall. It was blocking the application and asks via pop-up to decide what to do.
“…Application…attempting to control another network enbled application’s behavior using OLE.
Server \RPC Control\OLE18BB76A7…
If I block that then calling home is blocked and no instance of Firefox is launched.
Likewise when I use Sandboxie and place the program there with DropMyRights and deny all internet access. Calling come also is blocked. No instance of Firefox is launched either.
Maybe there is some setting that can be done to not let it launch Firefox or other browser for that matter. I know there is and I know Comodo can block it. Just need to checkout some settings that can be done that I don’t know how. Yikes.
I can see you've tried to block the entire range used by mplaycity, but are you sure this address block is the one used when you actually play the game?
-- I play not connected to the internet. I am uncomfortable with it and honestly I am not really a gamer. I just got bored the other day and tried playing again(offline).
The address I got from searching the host name with http://whois.domaintools.com/ the data that I have posted came from there.
Is there a better rule to create for blocking a site?
Hang on.. shouldn't this be a Defense+ rule? Shouldn't the game be prevented from launching Firefox/IE in the first place?
I tried to set in Defense+ through Computer Security Policy and placed it under Isolated and Limited application. And a customized one. See image please. The game will launch and still connects to home.
If I place it in Always Sandbox as Limited, it launches Firefox and connects to home. As Restricted, the game will launch but will “not” connect to home.
You can’t play either so you’ll have to close the window. Both settings in Always Sandbox is applied with the custom Defense+ rule mentioned above.
Appreciate the assistance
