I have a question , I noticed that Heimdal changes the DNS settings (for traffic filtering I guess) . would it change my current DNS settings ?

Anyone that's trying this software also using VoodooShield? How is the CPU usage? I'm asking cause a couple of weeks ago I tried this software again, and I noticed a possible conflict/incompatibility with VoodooShield.

It caused VoodooShield to use a lot of CPU. Is anyone here getting the same issue?

I'm tired of testing Heimdal PRO. Whenever I test it, the problems I faced when I first tested it always show up. Turning on/off Traffic Filtering doesn't change the DNS to 127.0.0.1 (or Google's DNS), most of the time. This is even after I had OS reset, and only Heimdal PRO installed as 3rd party security software.

Reported in the past, but Support (one of the experts) didn't know exactly what caused the problem.

Same, doesn't change DNS for me as well. I don't know, I think Heimdal is overrated, period. All it does is block malware hosts and support updates for, what? ~55 programs? And it claims that it blocks zero-day malware :D (Doesn't for me when I test it). Giveaway is nice, but there are plenty of programs what does the same for free. Maybe I am not capable to understand/fully utilize this program the way it should be :D Informative logos, good support, stylish UI (can't resize program window in 2017 o_O) and it ends there, I haven't seen that huge list under "protect against" Heimdal PRO - 2nd Generation Anti-Malware Security Software working in real-world-internet -surfing scenario. Makes me to believe all Heimdal does is filter my traffic through it's DNS services. And you wan't me to pay 34€ for that? lul :rolleyes: Just my personal opinion :D

if you had problems with the internet connection, after heimdal change to 127.0.0.1 follow this steps.
copy and paste this lines in your text editor:

WMIC NICCONFIG WHERE (IPEnabled=TRUE) call SetDNSServerSearchOrder ("8.8.8.8", "8.8.4.4")
PAUSE

and save with the format Bat on your desktop /example Googledns.bat
right clic and open as administrator

if you want a more stable interop with the 127.0.0.1 as dnscrypt or with heimdal ,
do you should to use a static ip for example the same .bat


WMIC NICCONFIG WHERE (IPEnabled=TRUE) call EnableStatic ("192.168.123.120"),("255.255.255.0")
WMIC NICCONFIG WHERE (IPEnabled=TRUE) call SetGateways ("192.168.123.1","192.168.123.2"),(1,2)
WMIC NICCONFIG WHERE (IPEnabled=TRUE) call SetDNSServerSearchOrder ("8.8.8.8", "8.8.4.4")
PAUSE

example ("192.168.123.120") is my local ip that i want as static,
you choice any depending on your ip router
192.168.123.120
192.168.123.121
192.168.123.122
192.168.123.123
192.168.123.124 etc.

("192.168.123.1","192.168.123.2") is my ip router or default link layer In most cases. 192.168.1.100
save your config and double click
Thanks!

I'll try those when I finally want to test Heimdal PRO again. :)
