Free version - Firewall: Internet Connection Sharing Mode
« on: February 21, 2022, 08:17:37 PM »
Hi,
I'm trying to work with WSL2 but the internet connection is being blocked by the Avast firewall which i can prove easily by disabling the Avast free Firewall. I have seen guidance online which suggests i just need to enable the Internet Connection Sharing Mode. Maybe i'm being stupid but i can't see this setting. Is it simply not possible with the free version or have i missed something else?
Can anyone assist before i need to disable the Firewall or consider another AV.
Many thanks

Hi, you can enable ICSM in the FW settings.
Avast GUI -> Settings -> Protection -> Firewall

Hi,
I'm not seeing that option with Avast One Essential.
Either from Explore > Firewall > Open Firewall
Or from Accounts Settings.
Is it just not a feature available on Avast One Essential?
