Es File Explorer Blocked By Firewall
Ive installed ES File Explorer (unix to Windows file access) on an Android device (Kindle Fire). It shares a WiFi connection with my Windows 7 laptop that is protected by Bitdefender (Kindle is not protected)
I configure ES with the IP of my laptop and receive several reasons for not seeing the network shares on the laptop, including "Blocked by Firewall"
If I turn off Bitdefender Firewall the Windows shares are visible to ES.
A verbose log indicated that the offending executable was svchost.exe
Tried guessing at a rule that permitted all access for svchost to the Android IP but with no luck (****** rule 25)
Must I plug away at the verbose log to define the appropriate allow rules, or is there a simpler way
