Hello to all!

Happy New Year!

Avast, "out of the blue", started to block simserver from working.

With Mark's assistance, I thought that I had resolved the issue, but unfortunately, it is now apparent that I haven't.

I have read the previous thread on this issue and I have tried the suggestion to exclude simserver from "Behavior Shield" by pointing to the folder where simserver resides (C;\.......\Simserver\* ) without any luck.

I have also tried to exclude simserver from the "global" exclusions (Settings->General->Exclusions of Avast) by pointing this folder, but again, without any luck.

I am obviously doing something wrong, but I haven't been able to figure out what.

I am able to use simserver without any problems, if I disable the Firewall of Avast.

My system is Windows 7 Pro. My latest update of Avast (Version 17.9.2322 - Build 17.9.3761.0). Prepar3D v4.1

Before I get fully frustrated with Avast and look for something else to protect my computer, I thought I would get some advice from those who seem to have resolved a similar issue.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

With regards,

I am also having the same problem with Avast.

Any other users having this problem?

Fixed: My Avast Firewall (public network rather than private) was blocking the connection.
