Eset Firewall + MAMP + virtual hosts


Recommended Posts

Hello, the Eset firewal seems to block virtual hosts on my localhost when using a port number.

Setup: MAMP + MAMP hosts
Websites that I open have a port number so I can target them using Browsersync 
Example: https://www.example.com:3000 (this is a local website on my laptop which has been created using Mamp)

When I open the website with the port number it is blocked by the Firewall: https://www.example.com:3000
Files load really slow (minutes) or not at all and I get several messages in the firewall log.

When I try to open the website without the port number it opens quickly, without a problem: https://www.example.com

Any help on how to set this up is much appreciated.

Does it work if you temporarily pause the firewall? If so, does it work if you switch to interactive firewall mode and create a rule when asked about the communication?

Yes it does.

I have tried to switch to interactive firewall, but I get literally an endless number of popups asking about the communication (see screenshot). I cannot even get back to Eset because of these. 

  1. is there a way to manually add a rule?
  2. which rule should I implement?

If you choose to create a rule you won't be asked about that communication again. If you create a rule for an application, I assume you won't be asked too many times since you probably don't have too many network-aware applications installed.

At any rate, I'd recommend collecting logs as per https://support.eset.com/en/kb3404 and opening a support ticket with your local ESET distributor.
