General Software Discussion / Re: Dropbox Shortcuts Holder

I use the launcher (in my Dropbox directory), then manually pin a shortcut to the start menu on each PC.

If you're using portable applications that aren't available from, you could also put them in the "Documents" directory and use the launcher's button to quickly access that directory.
Still don't see how that'd work as any programs I add would be added by the absolute path of the file within the Dropbox directory. It'd be helpful if there was some environment variable in Windows specifically for your Dropbox.

Okay, I use Dropbox to carry a lot of portable applications. Dropbox installs in different directories on different systems by default and whatnot. Some of these programs I use more frequently then others so I wanted to make shortcuts. I use them across all of my computers and I don't want to make all of these shortcuts on every single computer.

I made a "Shortcuts" directory to throw them in, in Dropbox, but that doesn't work since the absolute path won't be the same across systems. I was wondering if there was some program specifically for Dropbox that I could use as a holder for my shortcuts? I was thinking some standalone program that you can launch within Dropbox and toss all your Dropbox shortcuts in and it just sets the path based on your Dropbox installation directory + directory within the Dropbox.

It took a while, but I've found the thread I mentioned, and it has a solution as well :up:
Looked, but it seems like most download links there have been removed?

There's a Microsoft KB article about IPsec installation and usage. That's able to block/unblock, but I haven't read enough of the details to see if it can also properly list whether the ports are actually transferring data.
Yeah, I looked into that just recently and it sort of touched on what I wanted but you can't make any rulesets or anything.

Here's my situation: I play an online game that is extremely ping-dependent, and my connection isn't the best. Basically, when I play this game, I want to run some application that I can start up and load/set a ruleset that will block all other applications other than this game for accessing the internet so that only the game itself is affecting my ping.

If someone wanted to make a neat little portable application specifically for this purpose, I would definitely donate.
