Even though this subnet is trusted, ESS is blocking packets from my Server 2008 AD DC at 172.17.0.5. It's also blocking information from my ISP's DNS servers, at 68.238.x.x. Why is this happening? I wish I could turn it off and switch back to Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, at least it doesn't block client/server packets critical to the correct operation of a Windows Active Directory network, except I CAN'T turn it off because you can only temporarily disable it. Eset also gives no option to not install the firewall component when installing ESS, and additionally, disabling the NT service would probably turn the ESS tray icon to red to indicate a problem when there really isn't one. Please review the following text file for more information. I apologize for the XML format, I accidentally deleted the TXT version and my log has been cleared since.
