Quick questions here. How can I stop a program from calling home in CISver5?
I am using a DVD Creator from Wondershare and it frequently calls home when I am using it (when online).
a) What will I look for in the Wondershare folder?
b) Hw can I block it in CIS v5? Blocked Files maybe…?
How can I make a certain address always “allowed” in CIS v5?
How can I do that? I have jotted down the website address/host name already. (maybe a procedure…)
Sorry for the newbie questions here. Tryin to keep it short/simple. I hope you guys don’t mind:-)
When I do photo-editing/video creation I turn-off frewall/hips and leave the AV just running. I also do that while “not” in the internet.
Is it still supposed to be running? Is it off when you exit? I remember I cannot use a video-editor because it will not open. It took a while so I restarted CIS and place the video-editor in trusted then “exit–CIS” again. After it the video-converted opened normal.
Give the program that connects to the web the Blocked Application policy.
How to do that? Make sure the program is running. In CIS go to Firewall → Network Security Policy → Application Rules → Select → browse running programs → select the program → now choose “Use a Predefined Policy” and select Blocked Application.
Thanks for the replies here. Great learning. When I am connected to the internet and use a Microsoft app like MSWord/Powerpoint I use it in sandboxie but seldom do that…just pure surfing/downloading stuff.
