Blocked Internet Connection +Hub = freeze >1 minute

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?!

What happens if you unclick the “Use Hub” option in preferences?

it is already UNticked :wink:
