    I'm new to KIS 2015, can't figur out how to set specific program rules in fwall, mainly to prevent a few progs to "call home",
    I only have the possibility to edit program rule settings set by the fwall AFTER they said hello to mum.
    I asked this already to KIS support, no usable answer.
    Anyone succeeded ?
    thanks

    you can't add block without run the app first

    put all trusted or no trusted to "Prompt for action" before access the internet

    thank you, I could not figure out there is no possibility to create a rule "before" i.e. right after install as in Bitdefender, Eset and their likes. This end my trial of KIS.

    correct, but when you dont knows the ip/host's then is more easy by blocking the exe

    KIS lacks the feature you find in above mentionned Internet security suites: dedicated sub menu in the fwall settings, usually called "create program rule" allowing to contorl inbound/outbound connection to the internet simply by selecting the program (exe) in its directory.
