RE: Re: After several updates unable to connect to any url, how to find the error - locking use case

I could unlock the FireWall, but the fundamental problem remains.

The necessary information to setup detailed available rules for the firewall are not known.

I have tested rules for "internet access" (FireFox, Apache, FTP server, etc...) and at a moment the firewall have shown a "warning" about application locked "TortoiseProc.exe". Then I have defined to full unlock it. Then TortoiseSVN have run normally.
If we look in details the auto defined rule by the firewall is full unlock of TortoiseSVN (tortoiseproc.exe) but in the local net (confident networks).
So I think that the problem is not clear and I have submitted the problem to the FireWall Editor to get the information to well understand how the rules for a firewall with high security can be defined for TortoiseSVN client.

To be able to redact a clear note about this problem, which seems not to be very particular, I would need the informations about the chain of calls and opened ports in the different modes of TortoiseSVN operations.

I Think that if there are no more problems signaled it is probably because most of developers uses their firewall in automatic mode with no hight protection rules. This mode opens generally automatically all ports to tortoiseproc.exe without message... It was not my case because the computer is too a server for Internet connexions.

So for the moment I use a large rule which opens all the ports and protocols to TortoiseProc.exe IN-out.

We must note that the firewall has is own proxy but the soft functions without any declaration in TSVN parameters.

I hope everything will be clear soon.

Best regards
