Bitdefender Anti-Virus Plus

Hello all, Should I have windows firewall and network protection on while I have Bitdefender Anti-Virus Plus on? I am having issues deploying my web applications with a site called Heroku and the error I am getting says it could be due to firewall blocking me. I know Bitdefender is not blocking me or it would give me a notification. So I am led to believe it could be the windows firewall protection but at the same time I am not sure. Any help with this would be awesome. I cannot turn in school assignments because of this error and I do not know if it is Bitdefender or Windows. I'd put my money on windows stopping me but just want to be sure!
