Substance Designer - Firewall Interactive mode

Recommended Posts

Why I have no information to allow access to network for Substance Designer ?
ESET just blocks the connection.

Where in that new GUI is a list o applications that I could add an exception to avoid FW blocking ?

Are you getting Eset alerts for other apps that request outbound access for which no existing firewall rule exist?

Do you use automatic firewall mode without any custom rules and the trusted zone is set up correctly?

Title of his post indicates he's using it in Interactive mode. So that's my assumption at present.

Read the title just briefly :) You're right.

It's also possible to use learning mode for a while and after using the app review the rules that were created automatically.

I was also going to recommend the Eset Network wizard to create the rule.

I suspect something is wrong with his existing firewall rules. If I recollect, Eset firewall Interactive mode adds a "global" block? rule for outbound connections at the bottom of the existing rules set. I have had issues with that rule in prior Interactive mode use. I believe I had to change that rule to "ask" to receive alerts. Also, I had to always ensure the rule was at the end of the existing rule set.

-EDIT- I also noticed Abode Reader on Win 10 1809 for example is now dynamically creating Win firewall rules each time a .pdf is accessed. Only God knows why they are doing such nonsense. This app is also Abobe based and might also be doing such nonsense.
