network privet or public
« on: October 18, 2022, 06:36:44 AM »
I have 2 networks, named "network", and is hooked up to an "Intel Ethernet connection" the other is "secure line"and is hooked up to the "Avast SecurLine Wintun Adapter". When I check out the little network icon (lower right corner) Network reports "internet access", and I know this is a private Network. The Avast SecureLine WireGuard just reports "connected", and I know this is a public network, which bothers me. Shouldn't it be private. I preferably would want it to be, but this was automatically given to me. I don't know how to go about changing it, if I wanted too. Would anybody care to enlighten me on this subject?  8)

Hi,

If you are using the Avast Firewall, you can change the network profile. Please see https://support.avast.com/article/use-antivirus-firewall/#idt_220
