Hi there, I just had a question about Network Lock. I turned it on when I use torrents and to make myself more secure / private. However, I also have some public shared folders on this computer with my local network. This is so my Roku/WDTV Live can grab movie / TV show files and play it on the television in the other room. It seems when Network Lock is enabled, the Advanced Sharing settings for the network on Windows 8 automatically turns OFF the Network Discover and File sharing buttons. When I enable then and click save, then go back into the settings they are turned off again - this is when AirVPN is running and Network Lock is turned ON. So it makes the devices in the other rooms unable to find the files on this computer using the local network when I am using the VPN. I was wondering if it possible to somehow make the local network files accessible to other computers when AirVPN is running with the Network Lock enabled? Right now through AirVPN it doesn't seem to be possible, i'm wondering if there is a work around available? Or could the local network settings be loosened up slightly in future AirVPN versions? I'm assuming local network sharing won't impact identity on the internet when using the VPN? Thanks for the help,
