fr.a2dfp.net/ 127.0.0.1

Recommended Posts

Wonder why this address (fr.a2dfp.net) shows, when eset asks about local traffic?

All programs that want 127.0.0.1 local host shows fr.a2dfp.net

That address is the first one listed in the MVPS host file.

I do have "Allow all traffic within the computer" disabled/unchecked.

Win 7 64

You need to keep that rule enabled.

Also, that rule means any network traffic from local IP address to 127.x.x.x or; from 127.x.x.x to local IP address. As your screen shot shows, the default Eset "Allow all traffic within the computer" will allow access to the Hosts file which in turn would block all 127.0.0.1 domains listed there preventing the firewall alert you are receiving.
