    OK so im using LittleSnitch and it keeps turning itself off every 3 hours like it does on the demo version..... I have it registered and when i turns itself off i can just turn it back on. This is getting really annoying. Is there anything i can do?

    i think his point is that it is a bug in the program and we would both like any available fix as the developers dont seem to have on...........

    Riight.. but the person I quoted doesn't have a purchased serial, so it is in fact, doing what it is supposed to do. Unless I'm missing something obvious...

    he is using a serial, although not legal, it should still get the program to work. I'm having the same problem and was wondering if there was a workaround as the problem seems to happen for all registered versions, including legally registered ones

    Try completely uninstalling it, preference files and all, and install the original version 2.0.

    That is strange indeed, but I just wanted to add that my legally registered v2 one shows none of that behavior and never has. There has got to be some bizarre software interaction going on somewhere it would seem.:(

    $29.95

    I am probably going to sound all righteous… but Little Snitch is one of those programs I don't understand people pirating.

    It is cheap and it really works well — just buy it.

    Makes my life a lot easier just for keeping an eye on any traffic in and out.

    Surprising how many companies are out there "listening". :eek:

    Stop being a cheapo and just buy the software.

    It's a very hard working little Mac Pro.

    ummmmmm out of context. Read the rest of it. I said the problem happens regardless of the legality of the serial. I said he is using an illegal one and having a problem, a problem that i am also experiencing. This is all irrelevant. Does anyone have an answer or is this thread just going to be troll fest 09?

    If you really do have a legal license then speak to the support team. That is what they are there for.

    This used to happen to me with a dodgy licence a friend emailed me! Just spend the money and get a real licence. I havent had a single problem after I bought a real one and the program is more than worth it's small fee! Just buy it!

    Buy it.

    OP say "I did not say I did not buy it". That doesn't mean you bought it.
    Pirated serial won't work for it.

    If you bought it, contact support.

    I haven't testing this but....

    Hi,

    I haven't tested this solution, but this is supposed to work ... you have to follow the instructions exactly:

    If Little Snitch was installed, make sure that you remove any trace of it. Then reinstall. After installation, follow the instructions.

    -Before you enter Serial, block the following:
    Library -> Little Snitch -> Little Snitch UIAgent.app (Deny all connections)
    All Applications (Deny connections to hostname obdev.at or alternately IP 80.237.144.65)
    -Enter Serial

    I did this several times and as mentioned on another forum tried deleting the registration file located at: HD/Library/App Support/Ob Development/Little Snitch

    Nothing seemed to work, encountered the same 3 hour timeout as everyone else. I just tried changing the system permissions for the said registration document to "write only". That seems to have done the trick. 4 hours now and counting.

    Good Luck.
