I agree that within the app it is quite clear, and even in the FAQ (about which I've got no complaint) the terms allow-selected and block-selected are used so people should not get lost there either.

It seems that your logic for the terms blacklist and whitelist is similar to mine. By that model; the selected items are exceptions from the default blacklist. By the alternate terminology for the same allow-selected mode where blacklist and whitelist are inverted then the selected items are the whitelist itself. I'm finding it easy to make logical arguments for each combination as either of them can be made to sound reasonable.

To your point, It's a good thing we have allow-selected and block-selected.

Just think if it this way: white=allowed/ok, black=forbidden; list=what you select (the rest isn't on the list).

Like me, you "suffer" from Sprachgefühl.

noun, German

1. a sensitivity to language, especially for what is grammatically or idiomatically acceptable in a given language.

Apologies for OT, but I couldn't resist.

I will try to explain my problem more detailed.

First of all my Device:
-OnePlus 6T
-Firmware 10.3.2
-ROM CrDroid 6.4
-Gapps 20200311 pico arm64
-Magisk 20.3
-TWRP 3.3.1-32-mauronofrio

There is no other firewall APP installed. Afwall is the only one.
I think the problem exists until I installed the march security patches with CrDroid update 6.4.
Now I couldn't block anything. If I do, all traffic will blocked. This happens If I select only one app or I select much more.
I try to change the Binaries, but that didnt solve.
By the way, if I want to apply a ruleset with an block, so I will get an error message like “error applying iptables rules”.
Afwall reinstalltion didnt help.

If you need more informations, so please ask me.

Spirit

Problem will be fixed in the next crdroid update for the one plus 6T.

I was just clarifying issues and providing some basic troubleshooting ideas but it sounds as if you have confirmation about the issue and potential fix in the previous post.

Issue with Spotify: WLAN speakers not detected
Hi,

this issue is related to previously reported issue, but now I'm using another device.

I have setup a new device (Pixel 3a) with Android 10, unlocked bootloader and installed Magisk.
Everything works fine.

Issue description:
After enabling AFWall+ rules Spotify does not identify any WLAN speaker, means playback is only working on the device.
However, after disabling AFWall+ and deleting the rules manually in > Show rules > Delete rules, Spotify works as designed, all speakers are identified.

Unfortunately there's no entry in AFWall+ protocol.

Question:
How can I investigate the root cause of this issue?
Is there something like Wireshark to investigate network communication on Android?

THX

You might have tcpdump built in, if so capture to a pcap file and then analyze with Wireshark

Hello.
Feature request:
Please kindly include a pop-up notification that has option to temporary allow blocked service or app that wants to access network.
There's similar implementation in adguard.
I would like to have this option.
Thanks.
