X-plane fails to connect to GMapHD using FSWidgets plugin for X-plane. The connection works when I disable Avast firewall. Reconnecting the firewall I note it has blocked System32\svchost.exe.
The rules are set to allow this app, (System32\svchost.exe) to access the internet in/out, the app. is being blocked coming in. I have reloaded the FSwidgets plugin and GMapHD, to no avail, System32\svchost.exe is still being blocked. Would very much appreciate a resolution.

Is your firewall network profile in puplic or private mode?

Try change ... you may need to reboot after

Firewall  >>  https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/Antivirus-Firewall-Application-Rules


=========================================================
NOTE:The Network profiles control the settings which determine how strictly Firewall protects your PC.

Private: a lower level of security suitable for when your PC is connected to a trusted network such as your home or work network. This profile enables better connectivity, and permits all communication within the network.

Public: a higher level of security suitable for when your PC is connected to a public network such as in a cafe or airport. Because public networks present greater security risks, no incoming communication is permitted when this profile is set.
