Java applet not running when the mcafee firewall is on

Hi All,

I have a new laptop and mcafee firewall installed in it. However, when the firewall is on, the java and applets do not run. I try testing java with firewall on and its not working. However its working fine if i turn off the firewall.

I have tried all kind of settings, like giving full access, outbound only access, and also have tried with netguard and off. It does not work. Only if i turn off the firewall it works. Could anyone please help me how to make the java and applet work with the firewall on.

Thanks,

Nazaar

Re: Java applet not running when the mcafee firewall is on

What operating system and service pack is this and have you tried uninstalling Java completely in Control Panel, then reinstalling it?

Re: Java applet not running when the mcafee firewall is on

Hi Peter,

I have mcafee personal firewall 12.0 (build 12.0.332)

the OS is windows 7 home premium, service pack 1

Yes i have tried to uninstall java and reinstall. Have tried both java6 and java7. both work fine if firewall turned off. I do not want to risk without a firewall.

Please help to resolve, would be great help.

Thanks

You should only install the latest verison of java and make sure it's active in all your browsers.

If this isn't working then polease contact technical Support via Useful Links at the top of this page.
