avast! INTERNET SUCURITY and Microsoft SQL port 1433
« on: January 09, 2014, 05:41:57 AM »
i have a small home network, IIS running on machine A and MSSQL server on machine B.
when executing the website on machine A, data is retrieved from machine B (MSSQL default port is 1433).
machine B has avast! INTERNET SUCURITY.
when the !avast firewall is disabled, everything works.
when the !avast firewall is enabled, communication with MSSQL on machine B stops.

ok, so that is the 4th-grade overview.
i've done this before (with other firewall programs), should be as simple as opening port 1433.
i've found this not to be the case with avast! INTERNET SUCURITY.
i go to settings -> active protection -> firewall (click gear icon for settings) -> packet rules and
add a new entry name="sql" action="allow" protocol="tcp/upd" direction="in/out" address="" local port="1433" remote port="1433"
no change

can anyone help me with this?

i dont think its that its blocking the sql stuff its blocking the iis / apache stuffs.
