Sandboxie Virtual Network

Post by thomaz » Wed Dec 14, 2016 7:11 am

I want to set my real machines network settings to intranet only (remove gateway and dns values) but sandboxie applications still can access the internet.

Sandboxie uses a virtual filesystem.
Why not adding a "bridged" virtual network like it is done in apps like virtualbox, etc.

Then sandboxie network runs completely independent from the real machines network.

yeah, but todays personal firewalls are a joke.
all is commercial multifunctional bloatware which slow down computers.
and the "ok" ones like outpost, pc tools, kerio were bought by big companies and disappeared.
and trust microsoft? gwx.exe desaster? rumours about nsa backdoors? keylogger in win 10?

i would love to have such a function in sandboxie.
all is offline except apps running inside sandboxie.

also, for example somebody runs vulnerable server software on the main machine (for example old ftp server for lan usage only) then its possible that malware running inside sandboxie can "hack" this vulnerable server software and infect the main machine.
is my theory right?
with different separated lans this wouldnt be possible.

+1 is one feature i'd use daily!. I want to do this similar effect with network control but with my VPN apps or Proxy apps does this fail once removing nic pointers?
