    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me, is it possible to disable port scanning attack detection for the local network? I use some software called "Input Director" that allows me to remotely control another PC across the LAN, basically its like having a 3 monitor setup only the 3rd monitor is actually another PC. ESS keeps detecting Input Directors attempts to connect and flagging them as port scans. I tried adding a rule that would allow all communications to and from the PC's in question but that didn't work, and in the end I had to disable port scanning detection altogether. Is there a better solution to this?

    Have a look under Zones for 'Addresses excluded from active protection (IDS)' and add your subnet or LAN Address range to the zone.

    Thanks Stackz, that seems to have solved the problem perfectly.
