McAfee Agent installation blocks network communications

Hi guys,

Deploying Agent to systems in the network blocked all the network communications including ICMP. We believe that it has been the Windows Firewall which has been turned on by McAfee Agent installation. Is our assumption true? And if yes, why? We almost lost the network for half an hour!

Re: McAfee Agent installation blocks network communications

Hello @Former Member 

Thanks for your post!

Afaik, Installing McAfee Agent should not block such things.

Also installing McAfee Agent will not turn on or off any applications.

If you believe that this is happening because of the McAfee Agent in that case this needs to be checked and you need to open a Service Request with Support Team for the further information.

Re: McAfee Agent installation blocks network communications

Were there any other McAfee products installed besides the agent?
