first thing is don't worry about none of that...
i wouldn't recommend using winetools to install your apps, and there is no need for winetools to access the net period, so there is no need to allow it..
i know you may like the gui and all that pretty stuff, but just do it the ol' fashioned way and use the CLI and type "wine program.exe"
just use winetools to setup the fake windows drive...quite frankly thats all its good for ;-)
