No Eset Network Filters in SS 10?


Recommended Posts

I just re-installed release .386 using the off-line installer. I checked my Wi-Fi network adapter connection and noticed than no Eset network filters were installed. Can I assume in ver. 10 that all Eset network filtering is now being done by the Win 10 Eset AMSI interface? -EDIT- Thought this interface was for monitoring script execution only.

Also, just how is Eset monitoring inbound firewall and SSL traffic w/o use of any network filters?

As far as the firewall traffic, it appears that it is relying solely on Win 10 firewall in default Automatic w/Win firewall inbound rules applied mode. I am curious as to how any Eset firewall rules are being applied w/o the use of a network filter.

Ditto as for SSL protocol scanning which in previous Eset vers. employed a NDIS mini-port filter to do so.

Hi

I have previously got confirmed that they have changed to a new network filtering method that does not require the driver.  I don't know what they do instead, but it should reduce the number of errors as those drivers can be quite buggy (not speaking specifically of Eset, but just in general)

The epfwlwf filter is not used any more on Windows 8 and newer if I remember correctly. Instead we utilize WFP via epfwwfp.sys driver.

Actually a good move unless someone disables the Win firewall service as a few posters have taken themselves on to do.:huh:

In past versions of Eset that used network adapter filters, resetting the adapter TCP/IP settings usually resulted in me having to run an Eset repair to get Eset fully functional again.

I've disabled the Windows firewall service but EPFW continued to work as supposed. I've tried creating a basic firewall rule for http communication and it worked.

Did SSL protocol scanning work for sites using Eset certificate?

Yes, I would expect the Eset firewall to be functional. Question is about Eset network adapter settings since those state "Use Windows settings."
