Avast Firewall Blocking Ubuntu Windows Store App
« on: February 15, 2020, 09:37:13 PM »
Avast Firewall is blocking Ubuntu Windows Store App on Windows 10 Version 1909.
When I turn off the firewall, I can connect. When it is on, it is dead.
I cannot add Ubuntu App to exceptions as Avast does not have an option to add Windows Store Apps as exceptions.
I added
c:\Windows\System32\bash.exe
c:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Ubuntu.exe
as Allow In/Out All as packet rules.
It did not help.
Does anyone have a solution for this?

Does this help?



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.
