  1. I set the firewall to allow the three Wreckfest ports both directions with UDP/TCP and now it works. Thanks for your input, it's greatly appreciated.
  2. Thank you for the quick response. I am looking at the Rules section now and have found two entries for Wreckfest. It was only allowing communications In, but not Out on one of the three ports the server needs. I edited it to allow In/Out on all three ports that the server needs. That may be my issue. I will test it tonight when I have a friend online that can check the server's visibility for me.
  3. I'll look into that, thanks! This should be something that ESET can implement device-wide, though. Thank you for the quick response.
  4. Yes, that would work, but it's kind of clunky. It would be far better to be able to type in the app name and block before installation. I would only know after the fact that my daughter installed and used an app we don't approve of. Thank you for the quick response.
  5. I wrote to ESET tech support, but the answer given to my issue had nothing to do with the actual issue I was asking about, so... From within the game Wreckfest (Steam) I can host a game with no issues with ESET Internet Security v14.0.22.0 but if I try to run Wreckfest's dedicated server (separate from the game itself), no one can see my game online unless I disable ESET's firewall. I have already tried putting ESET into interactive mode and given the dedicated server permission, but it still blocks it. How/Where can I see a list of programs that ESET's firewall is allowing/blocking so that I can set it up to allow the dedicated server to pass through instead of blocking it? BTW, I explained the exact same issue to ESET tech support and was referred to an article on how to stop certain programs from being detected in a virus scan. A worthless answer. Thank you! Bill
  6. I don't see any way of blocking an app from being installed on my daughter's Android phone beforehand. The list of apps to block or allow only seems to pertain to apps already installed on the phone. How can I block access to TikTok via the web or from being installed from the app store without blocking the entire app store altogether?
  7. Um, SZT is not asking about blocking YouTube altogether, but rather blocking specific, objectionable content. I would like to be able to do this too. Not everything on YouTube is garbage, but there are filthy videos and language in many.
  8. I just installed the premium version of ESET's Parental Control app on my daughter's Android phone. The problem is, I changed the password on my ESET account on our main computer because she knows the old password, but the Parental Control app on her phone is still using the old password, so she can disable or change the parental controls on the phone at will! I see no option to change the password via the app and it is not being updated to the password change I made online via the main computer at home.
  9. Yes, I re-read that information. Thank you for all of the replies on this matter. I appreciate your time.
  10. OK, I see the same settings as you do now and they are enabled just like yours, but according to the Shields Up! web site: "Ping Reply: RECEIVED (FAILED) — Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests, making it visible on the Internet. Most personal firewalls can be configured to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests in order to better hide systems from hackers. This is highly recommended since "Ping" is among the oldest and most common methods used to locate systems prior to further exploitation." I can't find any setting specific to this in my new router, unlike the one contained in my old Netgear router. I don't know how to kill this system from responding as it used to under my old router settings. ESET doesn't seem to be doing anything here. Is it the router itself responding? I'm not an expert at this by any means.
  11. I'm running ESET Internet Security and here is a screenshot of my Firewall Rules area. I don't have any of those settings that yours shows by default. Thanks!
  12. Yes, but the problem with this new router from the fiber service is that it doesn't seem to have a mechanism to block ICMP (ping) requests. It responds to them. My Netgear router for cable had that option in plain sight.
  13. This is what I thought too, but when I go to https://www.grc.com/ and run the Shields Up test for Common Ports, it says my system is responding to Ping requests. On my old router I could turn off Allow Incoming Ping Requests, but on the new router I have I can't find a similar setting. ESET is allowing my system to respond, as is the new router.
