Hi, I'm not sure where to post this exactly, but I was wondering if there's a way to customize the Application Filter app? It has a pre-made list of applications it can block but it's incredibly incomplete (has Netflix but not Hulu, for example, among dozens of others). Is there a way to customize this, or was it designed more as a demo by eGloo and not really designed for deployment?

Accepted AnswerChris BellOfflineOoh thanks for that!! I'll have to look into how I can modify the engine to load an additional set of rules.Should be pretty straightforward, now that I know I should be looking at the netify configs. Unfortunately it doesn't look like that's going to help in this particular case, as Hulu is not on the list of applications they supplied... But maybe I can find more info somewhere, now that I know what to look for. Thanks again!
Accepted AnswerNick HowittOnlineI had this reply from the eGloo developers:
The original list came from nDPI -- you can find it here:
This nDPI list is a mix of "protocols" & "applications" and it's all hard-coded into the engine. Fortunately, our modified Netify engine loads the application list at run-time -- no more hard-coding! Here's a sample of the apps that can be loaded into Netify - https://www.netify.ai/resources/applications. If there's a new Webconfig theme coming in ClearOS 8 that can handle loading lists dynamically, we can certainly expand the applications list. For ClearOS 7, we're limited to about 100 apps.
This makes me wonder if you could hack the program and also include a static list to enable the other apps you want.
Accepted AnswerNick HowittOnlineAs far as I know the list is created if the developers notice a particular feature in the internet traffic stream uniquely identifiable to a service and it is not too heavy on resources. If something in particular for Hulu could be identified then it may be able to block it.
The app does have a contact address of firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be worth asking them.
