I am calling you because I have a problem with the McAfee firewall. My problem is this:
I unintentionally blocked the internet connection for the Farming Simulator 17 software and after many unsuccessful searches I still can not find the solution to the problem.
I posted messages on the Farming Simulator forum that sent me to you.
How to reactivate the Internet connection for blocked software?
Thanks in advance,
Have a nice day,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Look below in your Lower Task Bar, by the clock for your McAfee Icon. Right click on it and open your software, then follow these instructions
Click on/Navigation/Firewall/Internet Connections for Programs/Expand/Reset Defaults.
If I am not mistaken, this is (Gaming) software? You mentioned unintentionally blocked? Did by chance you notice a Prompt indicating a (False Artemis!) being detected?
Yes, it is indeed a gaming software. I never noticed the message "False Artemis!" But when I go to the multiplayer menu, a message appears: "Please wait. Connection to the server ..." for one minute and after: "Unable to connect to the server".
Thank you. Normally when you have been using the Gaming software, and suddenly you cannot access it. It is because the version has changed and your McAfee software detects it. I am trying to determine if that was the culprit.
Could you open your McAfee User interface/Navigation/Quarantined Items/Expand/ and see if there is a detection there?
No, I'm sure the problem is blocking the internet connection for the software because as I have already said, I unintentionally block the internet connection for this software.
I just wanted to know how to reactivate it (I'm not the administrator of the computer I use to play this software)?
Thanks in advance,
I see, I was simply confirming. Of course you would have to be the administrator to make changes. I suggest you Contact Support, you can find the link at the bottom of your Community Page. Online Chat/Phone being the quickest.
Or one of my Colleagues may add to the discussion.
As CD said a virus detection can do this but as that now seems not the case two other possibilities exist.
1 In firewall properties in net guard area try disabling netguard and see if that helps.
2. In firewall properties Internet connection for programs check that the exe file for the program is allowed access.
Of course you probably will require admin access to change these settings.
