View Full Version : Defining which programs can dial-out



30-12-2001, 07:54 AM
Is there a way to tell your computer which programs are allowed to dial-out and which aren't?

I've got a firewall set up (Tiny's) which blocks access to certain programs, but there are some programs I want to have access to the net, but only when I connect first, I don't want the programs to connect automatically (however, I still want other programs to connect automatically, so I don't want to turn off the autodial function of the dial-up networking).

Is it possible, and how do I do it?

Mike.

it up to the intervidual programs.

one problem i had was with autodail on any program that even looked to see if the net was there the modem would dail up. i find it easier to manualy connect then use a prog to redail if the connection is cut off.

get yourself zonealarm instead that allows full control of programs which want to dial out
