    I have little snitch installed and keep seeing connections made by mdnsresponder to ff02::fb, and

    Can someone elighten me as to what is going here? I think it is something about a multicast address. This never used to happen before so something changed unbeknownst to me.

    I am using tiger 10.4 (I know), safari and camino as browsers

    this is from china. it is a program that addresses your router address. see translation at <http://www.janog.gr.jp/meeting/janog26/doc/post-v6homegw-kitaguchi.pdf>

    Hi - am occasionally having to completely re-jigger my Leopard Tower 10.5.8 (PowerMac 11.2) - please forgive my questioning directly but I have reading difficulties/disabilities which means essentially I REALLY can't handle a link that links to 10 other links that're all a few pages long - I simy can't do this - plz believe it is not laziness, I am disabled.

    I use an old FFox (3.6.28?) for the bulk of work as Safari hasn't been friendly for a while now. I also use SeaMonkey, but most important to me is reclaiming the functionality of my RealPlayer (12.0.1).
    Even though I lock down Snitch's prefs, system prefs, set custom access for apps such as utorrent etc, and for 99% of the time all is fine. Then occasionally our very poor quality TALKTALK router c/o Landlord (recently replaced but still Huawei(?) router) seems to completely renege everything I've (eventually, after days) recovered so as to be normal. I save connection history reports but it's so frustrating trying to recall which bits were relevant to what.

    Please, please tell me what I must block and so forth....you may be my only hope - I know by now I should know ALL this, but, as I said, I have suffered the aforementioned problems for some time, also

    Many hopeful thanks

    In the core of a black hole.

    1, You are trying to get an answer from a member which posted this 3 years ago.

    2. Better make a new thread about problems you have.

    3. You don't make much sense, can't really figure out what you want.

    I'm sorry and thanks for even trying - I just can't get RealPlayer and/or even Safari to connect to shared router, in essence - the post was found googling the few facts I had. Thought this Chinese thing was more of an ongoing thing, and I'm aware our router is the worst for it.

    Will try to find somewhere vaguely relevant to repost a synopsis.

    Many thanks

    The router is most likely the problem.

    It is the most godawful heap of an "upgrade" ever.

    I have to use a 200mbps TP-Link just to get anything downstairs. Where I live. On the cabled ether. I start off with the DIVERT alert from snitch and no matter what setting it's on (MUST have gone through every single setup of snitch rules, deleting each set after they don't work).

    Is there a Terminal command that force it to look down its bloody Ethernet tube, poke its stupid head out and grab an IP that way? Its just that bloody FFOX is connecting and working, it'll download stuff (mostly) but won't allow video upload to trusted site, and Safari won't even connect!!!! It's figuratively driven me insane, I should know by heart all this carp by now!

    Dude thank you if you even bothered to get to here, I appreciate it immensely. And apologies for emptying my purse out on yer
