    Hi All,

    I am using ESET Smart Secruity 3.0.672.0 and am very very pleased =). But the one problem I have is that the Personal Firewall automatically blocks my VNC software (TightVNC). I go into ESET Smart Security/Personal Firewall/right click on WinVNC and can temporarily allow access to the VNC software. But, how can I make it automatically allow access to my VNC software everytime I turn on my computer? Like how can I disable my firewall for JUST this app?

    Thanks in advance guys....btw these are the options I get once I right click WinVNC if this helps at all:

    You could put the Firewall in Interactive mode and you should be asked to allow or deny a network traffic for each individual case which is not covered by a rule in Automatic mode. Later you can switch to Policy-based mode in order to get sort of union of your Interactive and predefined Automatic rules.
