Bitdefender Total Security 2017 Blocking PLEX
As stated in the title, Bitdefender Total Security 2017 blocks Plex from functioning. Specifically, it gives me firewall alerts that it has stopped port scans from my devices (Samsung smart TVs, Nvidia Shield, Samsung BD player) requesting access to the Plex server on my PC. The only way to make Plex function is to disable the "Block port scans on this network" option in the Bitdefender firewall settings module. This is not that big of a deal as my home network sits behind a Ubiquiti EdgeRouter™ PRO. Still, this is not the preferred operation of Bitdefender. Is Bitdefender planning a fix for this? The ability to open specific ports would be the logical solution. I have used Bitdefender for many years and it would be a shame to abandon it for another product with functional firewall capabilities.
