FSCS 13.10 Connection Control vs. VLC Player?

etomcat W/ Alumni Posts: 1,172 Firewall Master

Dear Sirs,

I have experienced a strange event, possibly a false alarm in Connection Control:

- Win10 64-bit virtual machine protected by FSCS 13.10


- Wanted VLC Player, so I opened Firefox and visited ""


- Clicked the "Cookies OK" button on the front page


- Clicked the blue "Download Now" button on the front page


- F-Secure Connection Control's bar appeared at the top of browser window,
asking me if I want to allow or block the download?


( Which is actually provided by a mirror, for example: )


- I clicked Allow but the download wouldn't start, showing Disabled or Disallowed in the browser's top bar. I had to click the Download button again to obtain the setup .exe file.


- Connection Control is enabled in FSPM 13.10 but the settings are all default.


Is this issue worth investigating further?


Thanks in advance, Yours Sincerely:

Tamas Feher, Hungary.
