Is there a safe way to use Custom Ruleset while allowing “all” applications to connect to 127.0.0.1?
Emphasis on “safe”, because I could just use a rule for that, but I read it’s not a safe thing to do.
I know I could just create such rule for specific applications, the problem is when that is just not possible (e.g. Visual Studio’s Live Unit Testing creates many host processes and it just stops working without a “global” rule).
Also, I’m pretty sure I had just unchecked “Filter loopback traffic” instead of using rules in the past, and it just worked.
Still, not sure that is a safe thing to do, but now that doesn’t work anymore anyway, it still asks when applications try to connect to 127.0.0.1.
Is this a known issue with the newest version(s)?
