2 programs I cannot get tinywall to allow access, is: Avast Anti-virus and Apple Safari browser.
Avast needs to internet access to update, and Safari needs access... because it's a web browser.
With Safari, I try whitelisting by window, click on the safari window and nope, still can't connect to the internet. I try selecting "whitelist by executable, and selecting C:\program files (x86)\safari\safari.exe
And it doesn't work. I try pretty much the same thing by going to application exceptions, choosing that exact file, and giving it full access. And it doesn't work. I try whitelisting by window and clicking on the safari window, and that doesn't work.
I try whitelisting by process, still doesn't work.
I disable tinywall, and safari connects to the internet with no problem.
This is the same with Avast. Actually, with avast, I have chosen many many different files because I am not 100% sure which exact executable or set of executable are needed for an update, so I have given clearance to every .exe and .dll in the avast program folder. But just like Safari, tinywall doesn't let it go through until I disable tinywall.
And I think there is another program tinywall doesn't like either, but I can't remember.
Any tinywall uses out there have a remedy?
