When I try to open HIPS GUI by doubleclicking mcafeefire.exe, it takes around 5 minutes to show up (the window is opened, but content is not shown, and windows says "not responding") when I'm connected to LAN.
If I unplug my ethernet, it shows up in 5 secs!
The version is 7.0.0 Build number 953. Agent version is 22.214.171.1243 and epo server is 3.6.1
PS:This is not limited to 1 client, all deployed clients are experiencing the same issue.
Edit: I've seen that several connection attemps are being made to an IP address with tcp 139 and 445 ports. But the tried ip address is an old file server's ip address, which is not present atm. And then a successful connection is established with another ip address tcp/139 and 445, which is another server, randomly.. Those ip address is not related with any mcafee software.
I didn't disable any functions of HIPS yet. I've given the tried ip address to a live server as an additional ip, now gui is fine, opening in 10 secs, next step would be capturing the transmitted packets with host and destined server.
