Im testing out both ESET Smart Security and DameWare. I was successful in making Dameware work 100%, I then installed ESET Smart Security 3.0.672. This caused Dameware to fail when connecting to any machine that had ESET installed. I was able to track it down to the firewall being the issue. If I set the firewall to interactive mode and explicitly allow DameWare through the firewall it works. My issue is that having to make rule sets for EVERY application that wants outbound access is really annoying. Is there any way I can leave the firewall set to automatic but still have DameWare function? Maybe create an exclusion\exception for DameWare?
