I’m a new GlassWire user and I’m trying to evaluate the program. I’m using GlassWire Pro. On the Firewall tab there is a Firewall switch (which is ON) and a drop down set to “Ask to Connect.” Then there are a number of applications on the system. The only options I seem to have here is to block an application or not. I was hoping that GlassWire would support a more robust blocking and filtering driver. In particular I was hoping to filter specific hosts/IPs associated with applications and run in full whitelist mode. I’m hoping this is just a user error on my part and I didn’t just waste my money on this application. The first problem is that I cannot get GlassWire to consistently “Ask to Connect” - it is allowing tons of requests through without asking me anything.
- Host Process for Windows Services (svchost.exe) is actually a bunch of win32 service modules loaded under different instances of svchost.exe. If I block this then I cannot get DNS resolution to occur any longer, clearly undesirable. However Windows sends lots of telemetry out from services and thus I cannot block the telemetry IPs individually.
Perhaps I’m getting this wrong and just don’t know how to use the program. Please enlighten me.
