    If you are on about the homebridge servers, then I’ve had two running at the same time.  One in docket on the Firewalla itself and one in a vm on proxmox.   No issues at all, however I’ve deleted them both, found them either too noisy on the network, or two heavy in terms of system load on Firewalla or in the end no benefit over individual apps for monitoring.

    Thanks, Andy. I'm not doing anything special with Homebridge.  Just running Home Assistant in a VM, and when I try to do any Home Assistant software updates via the UI (e.g. core update, supervisor update, etc.), the updates fail unless I turn off Firewalla monitoring.

    this is a good article https://help.firewalla.com/hc/en-us/articles/360050255274-What-to-do-when-you-can-t-access-certain-website-

    Speaking from experience, most of the time is due to a rule blocking something needed by a service. Above article should help you out.

    Are you on about npm upgrade.  I installed it on a Linux vm, so upgrades are a couple of commands

     sudo npm outdated -g.  To check  if any package is on an old version.

    sudo npm install -g npm. To update or

    sudo npm  install -g —unsafe-perm homebridge@latest -g

    Thanks Andy - I know how to go about doing an upgrade, it's just that something is blocking the connection and the upgrade doesn't work unless I turn Firewalla monitoring off. 

    I'll try the suggestions from the Firewalla folks re: seeing if I can find out which rule is blocking something needed by a service.  Thanks all for the input!
