Firewall/Camera upload problem
« on: October 06, 2017, 06:17:31 PM »
Hello, everyone.  I've been attempting to allow my firewall to upload photos from my camera (Panasonic FZ1000) to a Windows 10 PC.  There is no software involved on the camera end.  It's just a straight log-in to my system's WIFI.  It works great with the Avast Firewall disabled.  Not so with the Avast Firewall enabled.  I've scoured the setting that I think are pertinent, but find nothing to let this connect pass data to my PC. 

Any/all help will be gratefully received.  Thanks!

Thanks for the link.  I've tried both ways to no effect.  Oh, and shouldn't I be able to enter the IP's of "Friends" in the firewall settings?  I have the boxes but it won't let me enter anything nor can I edit any of the other existing ones.

What makes you think it is the firewall blocking it ?

Are you getting any errors displayed to the screen or the avast notification area ?
If so what.

Because the connection either times-out or refuses to connect when the shield is up.  When I deactivate it temporarily, it works great.

Is your Firewall mode set to Private and have you enabled Internet Connection Sharing mode via Settings > Firewall?
Windows 10 Home 64-bit • Avast Free (latest stable version) •  Malwarebytes 4 Premium (On-Demand) • Windows Firewall Control • Google Chrome • LastPass • CCleaner • O&O ShutUp10 •

Setting EVERYTHING to Private did the trick!  Thanks!
