I block everything in my network that tries to communicate without knowledge of mine.
So I noticed that Cubase wants to connect during startup to various networks:
My firewall blocks that.
Opening the HUB freezes C10 for at least a minute. This might be due to the connection error C10 might receive.
My whole local and LAN playback (VEPro) starts hicking up heavily.
There might be a better approach of C10 to deal with the WAN background routines which do not disturb anything?!
