Firewall rules for NOD32 Antivirus


xpdx

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can someone say please which are the Inbound and Outbound rules which should be add in the default Windows 10 Home firewall, in order for NOD32 Antivirus to function properly ?

 

Considering that all the Inbound and Outbound traffic is blocked at all and all the rules should be add manually.

 

Regards.

Suggest you surf the web for sites that have articles on how to configure the Win Firewall. Do note that there is no "interactive" alert mode for the Win firewall. You will have to monitor the firewall logs which are somewhat cryptic for blocked inbound or outbound connections. Note that by default, all outbound traffic is allowed in the Win firewall. Also, the default Win firewall inbound rules are adequate for general Internet use.

 

If you want a configurable firewall, I suggest you upgrade to Eset Internet or Smart Security.

I appreciate itman,

 

Excuse me, at least for the moment I can't afford to pay for Eset Internet or Smart Security.

 

For the time being I would like to do my best to manage with Windows Firewall, not another free firewall yet.

 

I intentionally blocked all the Outbound and Inbound traffic. I have been trying to create manual rules for each program, service and port.

 

I would be very grateful if someone could say if there are known manually created Inbound and Outbound rules for NOD32 Antivirus.

 

Thank you.

Hi xpdx,

 

Most likely, nobody will give the set of rules you are asking for.

 

But, there is a solution; Install Tiny Wall (which will manage Windows firewall) and you will see which component of Nod32 is asking out or in and create a rule in Tiny Wall; if you are satisfied with Tiny Wall keep it, if not  write down the rules, uninstall it and use the rules for Windows Firewall

Thank you John Alex,

 

I think this is what I have been looking for...

Can anyone confirm please?

 

Someone can give any advice please, if there is any way to add by copy-paste all those rules into a script, in order to use the script for add them to Windows Firewall automatically, the reason would be that the rules have to be add on more machines.

 

Best wishes.

Why don't you simply allow unrestricted access for NOD 32 to the internet , rather than creating 100 rules in the windows firewall?

ESET can change some servers/ip's/domains, without notice and your rules may not be valid anymore.

Tell me please, how to do that, John Alex?

 

Thank you.

Just run the Win firewall with default settings.

 

By default, the Win firewall will monitor inbound activity and allow all outbound activity. The inbound rules used are controlled by the Win firewall profile selected; Home/Workgroup or Public. The Public profile is the most restrictive one with no device or file sharing allowed.
