First, I just want to say that after using firewalls Comodo, Bitdefender, McAfee, Norton, and Vipre, I am most satisfied with Agnitum Outpost's! In ALL ways but this one...
First my setup: I am running a 32 bit Microsoft Vista OS. I have firewall set on Rules Wizard (for Auto-Learn Mode [which I have also tried disabling to bypass the probem]), with LAN settings all checked, Attack Detection is turned on and set to block intruder, IP Blocklist is off, the Anti-Spyware real-time protection is on, Anti-Leak is on (tried turning off and still no dice), System Guard is Enabled (also tried turning off to see if it would help), Application Guard is Enabled (also tried turning off to see if it would help),and I doubt the rest is pertinent as it doesn't really do with blocking specific ports or IP protocols, but Web Control is active.
What I have tried to do: I tried Disabling Self-Protection, Leave Auto-Learn mode, Allow All as a settings, Suspend Protection for 5 minutes & 1 hour, Exit and shutdown service, restart computer (of course), reinstall/repair OFP, fully uninstall and clean install OFP
And as for Application Rules; I've tried to set "Allow all activity" for the trouble program, Allow Outbound and Inbound UDP and TCP for the trouble program, Anti-Leak all "Allow" for trouble program (I would put in 127.0.0.1:6880 entry myself but I am unsure as to where I can. , tried to Block ICMP when the remote address is 127.0.0.1 for OP_MON.EXE, Block IP when the remote address is 127.0.0.1 for OP_MON.EXE (I am unsure how to go about keeping/blocking OFP from specifically listening/monitoring 127.0.0.1:[with 6880 port) [Anti-Leak is all Allow for OP_MON.EXE. I can't think of any more pertinent information or attempts I've tried, but if anyone needs more information, please inquire.
In any case, apparently the program needs to be the only thing "listening" to port 6880. The only thing that resolves this problem is when I totally uninstall OFP (so I know it is the firewall causing it). I love this firewall/software and would rather not keep it uninstalled! What's peculiar is even when the firewall is off (from both exiting & shutting down the program as well as through task manager), it is still watching/monitoring/listening to that specific port! I even tried exitting and shutting down OFP service AND turned of it's service in the Services window/config (with only 1/4 success).
I am extremely new to the program and these forums so I figure more/most experience ones as yourselves might have a better understanding and suggestions to what I could try/should do. Thank you in advanced!
