Slipstream Web Accelerator and Avast Web Shield
« on: March 01, 2011, 12:39:15 AM »
I use Slipstream Web Accelerator for my dialup connection. When it's enabled, Windows (in Control Panel>Internet Options>Connections) shows it as a proxy using port 5400 (see picture). I just started noticing that the Avast Web Shield doesn't scan anything when Slipsteam is enabled, but it works perfectly if it's not. In Avast, I went to Settings>Troubleshooting>Redirect Settings and entered 5400 in WEB HTTP port(s): (see picture). But the Avast Web Shield still doesn't scan when Slipsteam's enabled. Slipstream is a compression server so I set compression to "None" but still left it enabled and Avast didn't scan anything. But if I disable Slipstream altogether, then Avast will scan. Anyone know if there's something else I need to do? I have Vista and XP and it does it on both systems. This behavior is also the same for both FF and IE.

Thanks.

Uncheck "Ignore local communication" and try again?
