Loopback Monitoring Question For Fabian

Recommended Posts

Came across this in a prior thread in this section:

Define local ports. If you mean ports that are only opened on the loopback interface, then no. We don't. They are only accessible to applications running on your system and are used for local inter process communication. If you mean if we block ports opened by Windows services on non-loopback interfaces, then the answer is partially. Systems you specified as trusted can access them. All other systems can't.

* Do you block windows local ports?

 

I am seriously considering purchasing Online Armor but application localhost loopback monitor is an important feature for me. Specifically, any application outbound connection to 127.0.0.x and inbound application connection from 127.0.0.x. I thought OA had this as a feature but it is not turned on by default?

Online Armor can intercept connection through the IPv4 loopback interface. Just make sure the "Intercept Loopback interface" option under Options/Firewall is enabled.
