comment How can I prevent code from initiating outbound http connections?
This is what I tried initially but it gave me unexpected results. For one, as another poster mentioned, if there is a webserver listening on localhost, it would respond to the request. Also, some programs cache hostname lookups indefinitely. If I'm interested in only temporarily disabling connections, then I would have to restart that program to refresh its DNS cache.
