SonarLint extension in Visual Studio 2019 blocked by Group Policy

Please provide

  • Operating system: WIN 10 LTSC
  • SonarLint plugin version: v6.13.0.62767
  • Programming language you’re coding in: C++
  • Is connected mode used: Not intended
    • Connected to SonarCloud or SonarQube (and which version): N/A

And a thorough description of the problem / question: The plugin is being blocked by Group Policy on
our network…so AppLocker sometimes does this and changing settings worked but now nothing works to fix this problem…does SonarLint automatically try to connect to SonarCloud or SonarQube? That would make our network security block it…is there a way to configure SonarLint to not try and connect? It may be that it is being scanned for any dll usage that has networking functionality…
