Hi, came across this while trying to fix the fact that I couldn't connect my ES File Explorer to my computer...
Found out that if you go to Tools>Firewall>Settings then in the first policies tab, tick Internet Connection Sharing mode.
This enabled me to FINALLY connect my phone to my PC, and to connect to other computers on the network (which at first I thought was a Windows 8.1 bug!)

Hopefully this helped someone, sorry if it's been posted somewhere else first!

hi there, I updated Avast Premier and after my computer restarted, the firewall won't connect. Anyone else witness this? If so, what was the reason for the firewall not connecting? Thx

Oh dear, seems like Avast bought their firewall from, or copied, Comodo, similar problems   ::)
