Trouble with WSL on Win10 and Avast Internet Security
« on: November 08, 2019, 02:36:07 PM »
Hi guys, I'm having an issue running the angular CLI from Ubuntu (using Windows Subsystem for Linux), the firewall seems to block the traffic. Whenever I try to serve a local site Localhost times out, the only workaround working is turning off the firewall, which is no solution...

I'm running Avast Intenet Security 19.8.2393 (compilación 19.8.4793.544)

the firewall seems to block the traffic.
Is your firewall network profile in private or puplic mode?

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.

19.10 used to mean 2019, October. We are still on 19.8
Judging by that, it might still take a while unless we simply skip a build.

We are now on December and the latest available version still is 19.8 (19.8.2393).

Any ETA to fix this issue? Or should I simply stop using Avast?

Stop using it or what reason?
You're still getting excellent protection and updates constantly.
