@Ken_GlassWire - That was quick! Initial testing indicates that the firewall selections seem to be sticking. However, some applications are being blocked without notifications.
I am on ask to connect, and a few applications that did not access the internet when I first installed were blocked upon restart.
I am assuming these applications are the ones that requested access to internet before the desktop was fully resolved and GW accessible from the taskbar.
All the applications in the list were blocked by the time the desktop was fully booted and loaded. Once I click them to allow them access, GW again is remembering the selection. So, I guess, it is so far, so good.
Let’s see what the others say!
