ReHIPS / Re: Zoom
Last post by fixer - June 04, 2021, 08:20:48 PM
Personally I don't use Zoom. And I don't think I see an easy way here. They generate links in https format and I understand that. Like if you don't have Zoom installed, it'll get you to download page. But in ReHIPS case it means link will be opened by browser in IE. And it already means you can't start Zoom non-isolated as it'd be an elevation. So not many options left, either start it in a separate IE or in the same one as browser. In the latter case it can be done manually only as browsers change and there is no auto-way to put Zoom in the active browser IE.
ReHIPS / Zoom

What's the best way to handle links to Zoom video conferences?
When you click on the link, it opens in the browser, and the browser then tries to launch the locally installed Zoom client, if there is one.
An isolated browser can't open the Zoom client installed on the real system.

Is it recommended to install the Zoom client in the isolated environment of the browser?

I think the easiest way is when the browser page opens, to look for the tiny link at the bottom that lets you open the Zoom session right in the browser itself. That way you don't need the Zoom client at all.

Just wondering how other people handle it.

There are 2 possible ways for this to go.

1. Your file is in real user profile folder. Isolated ReHIPS user doesn't have any access to real user profile folder, so the file is copied to the same path in ReHIPS user profile folder. All editing is done there. And when isolated environment is closed, it's moved back. It's also copied back on timeout (by default every 10 minutes), this is called autosync.

2. Your file is in some other folder. In this case either nothing happens if the file already has necessary access rights. Or required access rights are granted, the file is edited and when isolated environment is closed access rights are rolled back.

When I open a Word doc via Open File Access, and I make changes, and then hit the save button, where does it save to?
I understand that after I close the doc, the doc with changes will be written back to the original location. But where does it live, in the meantime?

AFAIK there is also a safety mechanism for when the doc is closed -- it is saved in a certain hidden location until it is correctly written back into the original location. Is this right, and where is the hidden location?

Auto-Delete Isolated Environment feature was added into programs in ReHIPS 2.5.0. You may have noticed it. But why is it read-only and I can't check/uncheck it? Let's see.

Having this feature enabled will recreate isolated environment when program exits. It works like this. When a program exits, corresponding isolated environment is checked if it's free (no other isolated programs are running in it), then it's deleted and recreated from predefined rules (2 from this list ). It means if RulesManager doesn't have rules for this program, it won't be able to recreate isolated environment for it. That's why the "Auto-Delete Isolated Environment" checkbox can only be modified from RulesManager, and Control Center has it read-only and only shows its state.

Hello, vectorbravo, and welcome to our forum.

Thank you for your kind words, we're doing our best :)

It's not free, but limitations in the free version are quite liberal. This blogpost covers licensing

Truth to tell, this pandemia thing affected us too and we had to switch to other projects for some time. And our code sign certificate expired, we hesitated to update it. But there is no turning back now, we've just purchased EV code sign certificate, so the next version will definitely be released :)

I am confused about REHIPS.  I am from an earlier era where ProcessGuard (DiamondCS) and Tiny Personal Firewall (that was so excellent before it was bought and destroyed), and similar.  There was also Comodo PF, which is actually still decent.  Anyway I have now come and re-evaluated what HIPS solutions there are for windows, and REHIPS stands out and ACTUALLY WORKING, and working on server OS such as windows 2016 and 2019, and on top of that it appears it's free?

But what blows my mind, and made me sign up here at this forum and post this, is why does no one know about it, and why are these forums essentially abandoned?  It's a ghost town!  The most recent post, as of the time I am posting this here, was back in January, a good SEASON ago, 3 months nearly gone by without a single post.

Definitely the REHIPS interface needs some love and rearrangement to make things make more sense, change the layout, make some settings more accessible, etc, but jeez the software WORKS man.  It's 2021, no flying cars, but I am still here running windows (sigh) and man I need a good HIPS.  Sandboxie is a mess.  Comodo is great but they hid the options and don't give the user granularity anymore, so I'm installing REHIPS now on my system.  It's the best option.  What other options are there?  Other old greats have been absorbed into other products.  Webroot swallowed one and killed it, no hips interface or options at all.  Just one after another they disappear.  Man even GMER used to have a HIPS mode.  What happened to that?

end rant

oh, so anyway, THANK YOU to the author/authors

It is still under development, though not so active.
But we plan to increase activity this year.
