    Exception not working for Port Scan in ePO 4.0/HIPS 7.0


      Hello All,


      I am looing for help on a strange issue.  I have ePO 4.0 with HIPS 7 deployed, Network IPS is enabled also.  I made an exception rule for all UDP and TCP port scans.  Even with this exception, when I run a port scan, the scan is blocked and it fails everytime.  As soon as I disable Network IPS, it works again.  Obviously, this is the issue but why isn't the exception working?  Has anyone seen this before?  Any ideas what to do?


      (I've rebooted all boxes, tried this on 5 different hosts, works when NIPS is disabled, fails when enabled, exception is saved for the group and hosts)
