Amcrest Surveillance Pro and Avast Firewall
« on: December 15, 2019, 01:55:29 AM »
Security camera software... running fine until upgraded to Avast Premium...  I use my local PC as the NVR... while the recordings are still being made, the PCNVR.exe file appears to have a problem getting through the Firewall... After restarting my PC... the PC-NVR (my local PC) shows offline... can't be found... turn the firewall off and amazingly there it is... amcrest directory and sub-folders are in the white list / exception groups... anyone see this before...?  any clues on why this is happening...?

Is your firewall in puplic or private mode? .... if in puplic try private and reboot



Setting up Firewall Application Rules in Avast Antivirus
https://support.avast.com/en-eu/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.
