Firewall Rules screen v9


Recommended Posts

I find that the screen with the Firewall Rules of v9 is a big degradation compared to the much more clearly and orderly screen of v8 (and v7).

 

What should be done (at least) to improve the situation is:

#1. In the left 'Name' column, the 'trailer' (Communication etc.) has to be removed. That will make the name of the process/program readable (again) without changing the column width a lot. Skipping that 'trailer' is acceptable because that info is already available in the Action column.

#2. The screen size and all the column widths should be saved, so that next time the layout is the same as set previously.

Another remark, not specific v9, is the automatically started scan after installation. I have seen the same remark a few days ago, but could not find (easily) that topic again.

I don't like that a scan is already started just after installation (and without notification). I prefer very much that I first configure (most of) the settings and then start a scan manually.

 

Note. My OS is Win7 Pro x64 (NL

The firewall screen was discussed at length is this thread https://forum.eset.com/topic/6237-annoying-text-in-firewall-rules-editor/

 

You will notice that Eset is aware of the issues and will be making some adjustments to the program in a later release. In addition there are a few suggestions as to what you can do until the changes are made.

 

I believe the initial automatic scan has been present in Eset for several releases at least v8. It's purpose is the make subsequent scans more efficient.

If you go into the Scheduler in the GUI (Tools -> More tools -> Scheduler) straight after the install is finished and uncheck the checkbox for the "First scan" which is scheduled to run 20min after install, then it will not start automatically, and you can instead run a scan later on whenever you like.

Thanks SCR for your link to this already reported issue. I overlooked this topic because I've only looked in the regular 'ESET Smart Security' section and not in Beta Products sections. And then "easy searching" for 'firewall' don't show that topic.

Thanks for your response SweX, but that don't change my "complaint" about this. And (of course) I know how to prevent things like this. But (re-)installing is a once in a year (or longer) operation and I (and other users) don't think about that pre-scheduled scan.

So ESET developers, please no automatic start, but only a remembering message about scanning.
