View Full Version : Mobiwol blocks Muffin Knight (Feint)

Hello all, I'm a user of Mobiwol on Android 4.1.2 GT-N7000 (no contract). I spent a long time creating a a lot of block rules on anything deemed unwanted or unnecessary for connecting online. So far, nothing is broken, except this new game I installed called Muffin Knight. You see, I like its cross-platform multiplayer feature, but somehow it won't connect without Mobiwol disabled. The application itself is allowed on Mobiwol, and the firewall logs provide no useful info. There's a notification stating that "You are offline, Feint requires an active network connection" though.

Okay, it's worse than I thought. Even Samsung Kies is affected. Still with everything allowed I cannot connect to my Android with other devices. I believe it has something to do with either built-in incoming block rules, or the way the app uses VPN. Anyhow, I'm uninstalling Mobiwol, because there's no point having a firewall you have to sometimes disable for things to work.

Hi there,

I don't know why you're facing such problems, but you shouldn't discourage users from using an app just because it didn't work for you. Worse still when the troubled app turns to be just a game. BTW, did you know OpenFeint no longer exists since december? Many users reported problems with that. I'm just saying...

I have a tablet of the same brand of yours and I've had no problems at all. I know the big problem with Android is fragmentation and there's no "one size fits all" app yet, but that doesn't mean the app should be labeled as useless, notably because it is free and works on phones and tablets with no root.

I love freeware, and as radical as I may sound, you shouldn't claim anything about any free app since you didn't pay for it. If it didn't work for you, it doesn't mean it'll be useless to other people. Just uninstall it and call it day. http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum/images/smilies/smile.gif

Appreciate your reply, but I don't think J_L is discouraging the users to use Mobiwol, or he is calling it useless. I don't see that in his posts. He is merely sharing his experience, and asked others for a possible solution to the issues he faced. When he didn't get any reply, he went ahead and uninstalled Mobiwol, because it didn't work out for him. Maybe he will try again in the future. He is certainly not saying it useless, or discouraging others.
