Restriction - Internet Access

Post by Lord Danil » Thu Feb 08, 2018 11:21 am

Some programs run with fatal error, if in current sandbox setting set "no program allow use internet".
Games from GOG.com (goodoldgames), some games from Steam and some software (Camtasia Studio). If I run with internet settings "Allow all program use internet" - program start normaly (all program activity I blocked with firewall), but if I set "restriction to use internet" programs crash at startup.

Is there some cure for this problem?

Hello Lord Danil,

Some programs will not work if unable to access the internet inside Sandboxie.
Here's a good explanation from the previous developer:

>> Some programs will not work if unable to access the internet inside Sandboxie.

As I say previously, program not require internet connection (I can even disconnect Ethernet cable from motherboard port), but they don't run if sandboxie block Internet connection. So problem is in Sandboxie blocking method, not in fact of real connection with something in internet.

We are living in a modern world, any program will work with internet connection soon. Is there any way to run such program with Sandboxie Internet Blocking Options? Want use - don't block Internet access. This option in sandboxie setting in near future will be useless and only way to stop suspicion activity - is block it with firewall. Am I right?!
