Make Little Snitch and GlimmerBlocker work together
Authored by: ghay on Jan 04, '10 08:22:53AM

I use both, and have done for > 6 months.
I haven't experienced this problem at all.

Make Little Snitch and GlimmerBlocker work together
Authored by: emale on Jan 04, '10 09:07:46AM

I haven't experienced any problem either because everything is just working fine. But try the following: Delete the rule of one application you are using (e.g. iTunes or Mail) in LittleSnitch and use it (go to the iTMS or check for new mail). Is LittleSnitch popping up? Now delete the GlimmerBlocker rule in LittleSnitch and try again. There should pop up a LittleSnitch dialog on asking if you allow GlimmerBlocker to connect to the server.
If not, you are fine and probably haven't defined GlimmerBlocker as your global proxy in system preferences...

I suspect that is because you have given Glimmerblocker permission, in Littlesnitch, to access any destination.

It took me a while to figure out why this hint was needed. The problem with just giving glimmer blocker open access is that any application, such as Mail, that uses Glimmerblocker can now access any destination that glimmerblocker allows; but the hint's author wants to restrict applications further (eg. mail can access gmail only as described in the hint).

Your suspect is correct. But if you don't give GlimmerBlocker the right to access any server in LittleSnitch, surfing the web is more annoying than something else because of the constant LittleSnitch popups.
If you visit the same websites for all the time...okay. If you visit different websites each day...a problem.
