Webshield- overlapping input/output
« on: March 01, 2005, 12:32:40 AM »
I am using the free version of Avast! A couple of days ago it updated the core program and added a webshield that was enabled by default. It seems loading web-pages goes somehow slower and I get this timeout webpage in Opera 7.54u2 then I load several graphic files in differnt windows simultanously. I use ZoneAlarm, but not the proxy-possibilty. I also use Internet JUNKBUSTER as a local proxy-server to filer out ads (I sit on a dialup-connection, and thus has not much capacity).

Please try the following:
Click the Refresh button, or try again later.
Open the Web site home page, and then look for links to the information you want.
Check your firewall settings. The Web Shield process (ashWebSv.exe) must be allowed to access the Internet.

If you follow the instructions here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=10690.0
Can you make it work?

Thank you. I unchecked the "Ignore local connections" (This seemed to me to be the opposite of what I wanted) and changed "Rediredted http-ports" from 80 to 8000 which is my local proxy-port.

I now get the normal error message from my local proxy server each time I try to open to many webpages at the same time. So I guess I didn't get blocked out more by Avast, I just got another error-message. By the way, I think the slow speed problem was solved by fixing this :)

"Internet JUNKBUSTER
TCP connection to 'somedomain.no' failed: Bad file descriptor."

Not exactly... It's right: your Internet traffic is redirected from the port 80 to the 8000 and WebShield scans the traffic of the 8000 (the local traffic from 80 to 8000). This is the proxy behavior...

 which is my local proxy-port.

Good news  ;)
