  1. Windows defender / firewall allow exception for softphone application with unique EXE...


    Hello all,


    I could really use some help with a problem we have encountered with a downloadable softphone application on our conferencing user interface being blocked by windows firewall. While we can run it anyway this may not be possible or inconvenient for external participants.


    Having looked at creating an exception this would work fine if the application has the same EXE file name each time, however, the way the application works is that the file name includes the conference code and individual ID and so changes each time it is downloaded. Examples:


    Phone-365438_IKrbbzCN.exe

    Phone-424963_Hekv1TxM.exe


    Can anyone offer some advice on how to allow the softphone to run without Windows Firewall intervention?

    :)

    Hi,

    Let's try to resolve your concern. Follow the steps below on how you can add/allow Firewall exceptions on your device:

    • Search for Firewall using Cortana or the Search bar.
    • In the Windows Firewall window, choose
      Allow an app or feature through
      Windows Firewall.
    • Click the Change Settings button, and then select the apps on your device that you want to allow or be exempted on the
      Firewall.
    • Click OK and then the Close button to close the

    Looking forward to your response.

  3. Windows Defender uninstalls Google Chrome and it's Modifiers

    Hello Sofia,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and we regret for the inconvenience. Let me assist you to resolve the issue.

    At this point of time I suggest you to try your Windows firewall to make an exception rule. Follow the below steps.

    To do so, follow the below steps to add an exception to the firewall list.

    • Open Control Panel, and select Windows Firewall. Next click on "Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewall"
      in the left pane in the window.
    • To start making changes, you need to click "Change settings" located above the list of apps and features.

    Note: that you need to be logged in as an administrator.

    Let us know if the above suggestion helps.

    Thank you.

    Windows defender / firewall allow exception for softphone application with unique EXE...

    Firewall (AVG firewall)l blocks modern (not desktop) app TouchVPN, how to make an exception in the firewall settings for the apps from windows store?

    App is installed, firewall blocks internet access for this app.

    It is easy to add desktop apps to exception list in firewall settings, but how can I do this with modern apps

    from store (have no access to exe files and even folders)

    If I change AVG firewall to Windows firewall how can I allow modern apps internet access?
