- Subject: firewall going bezerk.
Cygwin is constantly performing DNS lookup's
My zone alarm firewall is going nuts.
I think cygwin even turned my firewall off... the true vector engine.
Anyway I decided to turn the firewall off completely...
Cygwin is not the only app going nuts with dns... also windows xp is going
nuts with DNS.
I think it is because the way cygwin and windows works... like a quake
game... everythin goes via network code...
So cygwin is like a server giving service or something... windows xp is also
like a server ? funny.
But I don't think it s funny... I hate it... I want my internet connection
to only access the net when it is really needed.
I rather have windows xp and cygwin not be like a server etc... and just use
dll's and other forms of inter process communication etc...
Those are my wishes :P :D
