Low ID for eMule when Avast Firewall is on
« on: May 05, 2017, 12:43:11 PM »
Hi

Recently I'm getting Low ID & "TCP test failed" in eMule.
At first I thought its about port forwarding.

But suddenly when I turned Off the Firewall of Avast Internet Security, My Low ID gets disappear. I already allowed all connection for emule in Avast Firewall.



I think this problem started about 1 month ago (when Avast Internet Security had an update), But I'm not sure about it.

I already have the last version of Avast. (17.4.2294)

OS: Windows 10 x64

So please tell me what I must change in the settings of Avast Firewall to solve this problem.

Thank u.  ;)

There have been several updates/fixes in the past month.
Make sure you have the latest version of avast installed.

You'll have to go to eMule app settings in avast! and change the blocking slider and allow all connections for eMule. Then you should get High ID in eMule (you may have to restart eMule).

There was no image when i posted. Anyway...

I don't have avast! around to check, but eMule needs ICMP "access". If you can enable it somewhere, try it. Though, last time I tried, it worked just by enabling all connections. The old eMule client is a bit buggy. Try using the unofficial build, I find it more reliable when it comes to High ID: https://github.com/irwir/eMule/releases/tag/eMule_v0.50b-unofficial

I found the packet rules of emule in Avast Firewall & add an ICMP rule for it, But still get Low ID.



Thanks for the unofficial emule link but I assume that this problem is bcuz of Avast & not emule; Bcuz as soon as I turn off the Avast Firewall, I could get High ID!

Update:

I tried another firewall software & there is no low id with that.
So this problem, definitely is from Avast Firewall.

Still waiting for any suggestion.

If you are running OS Vista or later, you can get by just fine with Windows Firewall for now.

I think you've got a part of the solution in hand as far as avast Firewall>ICMP blocks occurring.  Starting with .2291 I've been seeing multiple ICMP blocks in the block rules section whereas none were there before.  Seems to be related to streaming networking and video devices.

U mean these "packet rules" that all have "Block" action?
Is it OK to remove them all? (to solve my problem)
[They can not be changed to "Allow", They just can be removed only!]

I wouldn't go so far yet to allow all these connections just yet, or at least until an avast team member can reproduce and confirm these blocks are supposed to happen or are actually a bug in firewall policy.

For now I am running Windows Firewall with avast firewall not installed and monitoring what works and does not work.

Does this "Windows Firewall" works like Avast Firewall? I mean, Does it automatically ask to allow or deny connection, when an app try to connect to internet? Or I must add apps manually to "Windows Firewall"?
