I was recommended in another thread to use LS to restrict access of a certain program to the internet, now obviously with LS it asks about every program, now theres a few request from program which im not even sure what they are, let alone if i should be allowing it, there processes are listed below, and if anyone could tell me if i should allow or deny that would be awesome, (im just thinking on a security level)

Cider
Configd

Thanks
Matt

configd is a system process, funny that LS should even ask you about that.
Cider I have no idea.

LS will always ask you about system processes as well, if they try to connect to the OUTSIDE world.

Cider is a game development library. So that would probably be some game or another.

You don't see how versions are relevant?
For all anyone knows, you were talking LS 1.0.x and OSX 10.3.x
(features differ... troubleshooters care about versions and info and not wasting time).

I've been helping folks do stuff online since 1999, and your desire to
argue instead of helping someone to help you is most uninspiring.
I won't spend any time explaining why you're wrong, because it's no
longer about exchanging information... and that bores me no end.

well tbh mate, you did come in offering help after the problem had been solved, asking questions that no one else had asked, and yet the problem was still solved, get down from your high horse and shut up

Are you feeling low?
Try Xanax or Paxil or something.

mDNSResponder: the daemon in charge of Rendezvous / Bonjour (allows Macs, printers, etc. on the same local network to find and connect to each other without requiring you to enter IP addresses manually)

ntpd, ntpdate: Network Time daemon (for automatically updating your system clock and keeping it accurate)

nmblookup: for connecting to Windows machines via file sharing

natd: needed for Internet Sharing, if you're using that

named: DNS server.

Something you might want to do sometime might be to go to System Preferences -> Sharing and make sure you don't have any services turned on that you don't need.

thank you very much, i think the reason they have all just popped up is i have just moved back to uni for the first time since setting up LS, so have gone from a wired net connection to a wireless network.

thanks
