Whitelist Bash on Ubuntu on Windows in firewall


Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am using Eset on a windows 10 system, but I am using the "Bash on Ubuntu on Windows" subsystem as described here:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/commandline/wsl/about

I am having a hard time whitelisting applications spawning an internet connection from inside it in interactive mode. There is a "PID" but no application name. How can I whitelist all network activity for them? I have attached a screeenshot to show what I mean.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Unfortunately, WSL applications are not currently supported by ESET firewall. Users can set rules only by IP addresses and ports.

any progress update on this?

No, there are no plans for that so far.

I'm sorry for the confusion. I confused the abbreviation WSL with RSC in another ticket. We plan to add support for determining WSL applications.

How can we ask to have this be considered?

WSL will soon be out of beta, and power users will increasingly rely on that environment for their work.

This needs to be supported, WSL is out of beta and an official part of windows now.

Even worse, if you create a permanent rule with the interactive prompt, it will actually install a wildcard rule allowing all traffic from any application (even normal windows applications)!
