    Hey guys, we are getting very close!  Here is the latest version… there are just a few things that I need to finish up, like the new artwork on the How It Works form, and I also need to finish the Windows Firewall feature.  It is all ready to go, but I don’t want to actually automatically add rules until we are sure all of the bugs are fixed, because believe me, as many changes as there were in this version, there are most likely be a few small bugs.

    There are way too many changes under the hood and with the WLC implementation for me to describe, that it is probably best for you guys to just try it and see.  A few small things though, I removed the Advanced Snapshot feature for a lot of reasons.  First, we really need to get back to our roots and focus on VS’s proprietary tiny, customized whitelist… that really is what VS is all about.  The whole goal is to offer the smallest attack surface in the industry.  Also, there is no reason to analyze thousands of files with WLC.

    Also, brand new whitelists will be automatically generated and scanned with WLC.  Again, the whole goal is to keep the whitelist as small as possible.  Then again, with WLC and the other features we have implemented the last year or so, unwanted blocks should be pretty much non-existent.

    I hope to catch up on the posts here soon… it is great to see you “old guys” 😉.

    And yes, I would uninstall the standalone version of WLC now 😉.

    Thank you guys, have a great weekend!

    If you implement the option to scan files of 500mb better give the users an option to cancel/ask for the WLC upload. I wouldn’t want to be the user with a slow upload “forced” to see a 500mb upload happening 😀 In some countrys the upload is like 1/10 from the maximum download or worse.

    Yeah, we should figure out something for this… for now it is best to just disable WLC if you are on a slow upload or metered connection.  The upload will timeout after 5 minutes anyway… which is currently adjusted for the 100mb limit.  Once we change it to a 500mb limit, we might have to change the timeout as well.  Thank you!

    What would it take to allow the user limit the upload speed?

    Been following this WLC issue thread with much interest particularly because when my paid VS expired last Dec. 31, I no longer had WLC. Yet I maintained VS free with “Always On” setting and was delighted when VS 5.60 came out. VS, even free, just keeps getting better, with or without WLC.

    Dan, I really think WLC is the next big breakthrough after VS and I wish you the best and success in putting these two technologies together. From reading all this, you’re almost there!

    Blessings to you…

    I think it would be pretty easy, what do you have in mind?

    Thank you, I appreciate that.  Yeah, I am pretty excited about WLC as well, especially once we refine it a little more over the next month or two.  Also, I did not even realize that WLC would convert Free users to Pro users, but it certainly is.

    Hi Dan

    Followed your instructions re doing fully clean install of 5.6 and left it for a few days to sort itself out. It now seems to be running fine.

    Congratulations and thank you for all your hard work.

    @Dan Just as info. VS can’t seem to remember when I allow the brsptstub.exe which is used to patch Starwars the old republic (talking about the MMORPG and not some cracked game). The file is used to patch the client (afaik). But even when there was no patchdownload VS wants me to “allow” it every time again. VS 5.50 always on mode

    Dan:

    Just give the user the option to limit the upload speed to X-number of KB per second and  also give the user the option to only do uploads during idle time. Or maybe just one or the other.

    If you do implement an option to let the user choose to do uploads only during idle time, that would need to be an option that’s enabled by default out of the box.

    I just replied in this topic but I don’t see the post here.

    I quoted Dan’s post https://voodooforums.com/forums/topic/voodooshield-5-50/page/47/#post-3729 and replied but I don’t see my post here.

    @khanyash.

    You cannot quote and reply to a quoted post. You have to reply to it and/or add your own quote to your post.

    Example:

    @Dan about post…

    Hope it does help.

    Dan,

    How about adding these settings?

    1. Automatically upload unknown files.

    2. Manually upload unknown files.

    If manually upload is selected, there should be an upload option for unknown files on alerts.

    You may add a file size limit drop-down option for the mentioned settings.

    I think the mentioned settings should be added for all protection, WhitelistCloud, VoodooAi, BlacklistScanner.

    I don’t understand. I’ve tried to reply to the guy talking about issues starting up SWTOR @Geri123 Every time I click submit after typing up my reply I get goose egg, nothing.

    Okay, now it works. Apparently the function for quoting certain users is broken.

    It worked when I quoted @Dan earlier today.

    Hi Dan

    Still having problems here.

    I am installing a program from here
    https://www.accountz.com/pages/home-accountz
    and VS when I click on the WL to allow it causes VS to freeze and also the account program to crash. I thought you might want to know about this, in the meantime I will try turning WL off to get the program to work.

    David
