    Hello everyone,

    Have a question about scripting. I have this app installed called Little Snitch and I made two different rule sets which I switch between depending on whether my VPN connection is turned ON or OFF. Switching these rules manually each time I attempt to connect or disconnect the viscosity client at times is tiresome thus I thought maybe there is a way to write a script which would make the switching automatic. Unfortunately, I know nothing about scripting so if anyone could point me in the right direction where I could either read about it a bit or find someone who could provide me with an already working script which could be used for my kind of situation, It'd be appreciated.

    cheers

    Can't help with specifics, as I'm a "no clue" gal when it comes to Apple scripting. But to educate myself, I grabbed the Kindle version of "Automator", one of the visual guides. I have a Kindle, but find it more helpful to pull this up on screen via the Kindle App for Mac or read it on the iPad.

    $14 and change, but worth it, for me. I've eliminated the tedium of several former do-it-manually chores. Still learning though .. kinda fun.
