Firewall problem after update to 188.8.131.52. Can't map drive or use UNC path.
My computers just updated Bitdefender to build 184.108.40.206. After this upgrade, I can no longer access other computers on my network. I am unable to map drives or access my NAS backup server. I don't see any notification by Bitdefender that it blocked anything. I have two scenarios: 1) I have a Win 10 computer that I map to from another computer. Both computers run Bitdefender. The only way I can map drives is to turn off the firewall or set network adapter local area connection to Home/Office on the computer I'm mapping to. 2) I attempt to access my Synology NAS backup server by going to \\NAS\Backups\ folder. It can't connect to it using UNC notation. The only workaround I found was to disable the firewall on the computer I'm connection from. The NAS is not running Bitdefender.
This worked fine until the Bitdefender upgrade today. How do I keep my firewall on and still map to the drives and access with UNC path. If I set my local area connection to home network, will it automatically change it back to Dynamic if I take the computer and plug into a different network. I'm hesitant to set it to Home/Office even though it's currently at my home. Please help. I'm hoping theres a rule I can add to fix it, or you can provide a software update. Thanks.
