I am running a java application that does some web scraping using Commons HTTPClient but it is unable to connect to the Internet unless the firewall policy is set to Allow Most or lower.
To solve this I recently started a new configuration for Outpost 7.5 and turned on the auto-learn mode. Even so, when my application attempts to connect while Outpost is in rules wizard mode, HTTP is completely blocked. Also of interest, when the application is blocked I can see the rule "Allow outbound HTTP for Java" active on Outpost's Network Activity screen; however no bytes are sent or received.
Any thoughts on how to fix this problem?
