CS Mac - all traffic through esets_proxy makes impossible to selectively block

Recommended Posts

On Mac CYBER SECURITY all traffic goes through esets_proxy. I know it has been like this for a while but for me it became issue when I went from 10.6 to 10.9 (clean install).

Before (maybe it was on 10.6) I was able to use Little Snitch to filter outgoing connections by application and destination/port. Now it's tougher because many apps send all traffic through the Eset proxy and it's impossible to use filtering this way. I Can't meaningfully filter it. If I set one connection to block but then I need to set general rule to allow makes it the restriction redundant.

I know Eset guys would tell to go to LittleSnitch for support but first I want to establish where is the issue.

I'm not into using firewall on day to day basis, it's configured and works fine (icefloor).

Yes, pretty much all HTTP traffic goes though esets_proxy, so unless you create rules by port or destination, using Little Snitch with Cyber Security is not a good pair if you need strict filtering.

You could filter connections using Cyber Security Pro's firewall instead, otherwise a different setup may be required to achieve your filtering goals.
