OpenIV does not bypass Windows Firewall (or any other firewall actually) in any way. We don't have any special code for this, and for connection to internet we use standard methods, nothing unusual.
@racer-x You should stop distribute misinformation of the facts which based on your racist beliefs.
And btw, blocking updates is violating our End User licence which you agreed with when you installed OpenIV. (You can't install it unless you agreed.)
@krissboo said in How do you firewall OpenIV?:
This parameter is not used since OpenIV 2.9
@racer-x this might be a little ironic but OpenIV have auto-updates, to make sure all user will receive importance fixes of critical issues (which for example can corrupt your files).
Also, without auto-update majority of users will not update by they own will, even when we have new features (which might help them for example). And if users are not update there is absolutly no reason for us to make new features/updates.
So, if you want OpenIV dead, continue to block updates.
