cannot connect to free wifi network

Recommended Posts



on eset it is impossible to connect to the free wifi network and even by disabling in network configuration the fire it is impossible to access this link: https: //wifi.free.fr/? url = http: // www .msftconnecttest.com /

redirect to connect to the public network.

it is perhaps a parameter that I have activated in eset internet security.

Thank you for your reply in advance.

eset blocks all the flow that passes.

In fact the free wifi network (which is a French operator) allows its users to connect to a public network of a freebox (therefore the network is not secure because the user of the freebox can see all the flow that circulates there on its box)

see picture 1 

best explication:  https://free.fr/assistance/2303.html

Another error that I encountered on internet security when a network is BLOCKED and that we try to see in the protection of the network then in the troubleshooting help: it bugs VERY often when we try to modify the time slot: 5 min or 10 or 15.

see picture 2 :

eset is in french !

Thank you

Appears Freebox for all practical purpose is an ADSL gateway/router that allows for connection to France's free public Wi-Fi service. Assumed is it connects to the closest Wi-Fi hotspot available. In other words what we have is the WAN side of Freebox gateway  connecting to the public Wi-Fi servers, but the LAN side of the gateway functioning as a normal router assigning internal local subnet addresses, etc..

I believe Eset when it detects a public Wi-Fi connection will try to set up a "Public" network connection. Note that when Eset sets up a Public network connection, no internal network IP addresses are trusted except for the IP address assigned to the device itself.

Rather than recommending inadvertently an insecure Eset network configuration, I suggest you open a technical support request:  https://www.eset.com/int/support/contact/  . Since this free public Wi-Fi use appears wide spread in France, Eset support in France should be familiar with the best way to configure your Eset installation for maximum security and usability.

I wanted to discharge because it would surely serve others. I no longer use this network. But 4 months ago he served me for some recovery. I have desinstallese este to succeed to connect. A little ambetant : (

I almost changed antivirus but eset is the best.  suddenly I have 2 : )
