[QUOTE=beef barley;2015316]You don’t recquire internet access to burn, now if the program is checking for updates, that’s another story.[/QUOTE]
Yup, beef is correct…
Here’s the deal, at least last I knew…
VSO burn engine attempts to phone home. This doesn’t send any personal info; just burn info that VSO compiles and analyzes in order to develop and further improve their products.
It’s absolutely voluntary.
Most users enable or disable this function via their firewall. This doesn’t affect function. However, I’m guessing that if you don’t enable/disable it, it will want to phone home and perhaps get hung up in this continual loop.
Just pick one.
Also, you may have to do this after each update, again depending upon your firewall(s), ie., software, hardware.
You can also avail yourself of either Img or Nero as burn engines.
Bigmacnc (an old friend and long time cdfreak) has one of his rigs set up with Fab and without any internet access…ever.
It’s used strictly for burning. No problems.
Checking for updates shouldn’t affect anything, but beef may know more about that…
Hope this helps.
