Yosemite : Airdrop not working on Cyber Security Pro


Recommended Posts

I have installed the latest CSP (6.0.14.0) and have issues with Airdrop on Yosemite

 

I cannot airdrop from my Mac to my iPhone unless I disable CSP's firewall

However the iPhone can see the Mac for airdrop from applications

 

I added a rule to allow Continuity to work locally, but airdrop still seems to have issues

 

These issues do not occur if I use apple's firewall (and have CSP uninstalled)

 

Anyone else having issues with Airdrop ?

Yes, I was having similar issues with Airdrop and ECSP even on Mavericks (which was limited with Mac to Mac only).

The Mac without ECSP could see any other Mac fine, but my Mac with ECSP installed couldn't see any other Mac device.

Does it worked fine with ECSP 6.0.13 before?

 

 

Personally no, it was happening with version 5 as well.

This issue still exists on the latest build/modules

Are you currently able to successfully use AirDrop (finding the device and complete a file transfer both ways) without ECSP installed?

Without ESET installed Airdrop works fine

With it installed it first objects to AWLD0 and UTUN0 devices (it thinks they want DHCP), if I say these are HOME network it still occasionally falters, and AIRDROP does not work both ways (Mac -> iPhone and vice versa)

 

As it stands ECSP definitely needs work around Airdrop/Handoff/Continiuity

 

I'm currently running without it as it's become too much of a hassle to work around it when issues occur

Good news, just tested Airdrop and it is working again with OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and ESET Endpoint Security for OS X 6.0.24.0 (currently on pre-release updates) released after ECSP 6.0.14.0. This might mean that the next build of ESET Cyber Security (and Pro) will also have the same results.

 

I don't know if it is just a coincidence or if they specifically tested Airdrop lately, but happy to see it working again and hopefully soon for home users too.

An update from the previous post - Airdrop is working with ECS & ECSP 6.1.12.0, just like EES for OS X.
