    I´m trying our a new java based download manager called Jownloader (www.jdownloader.org). I´m running XP SP2 and ESS v3.0.645.0

    ESS seems to be blocking Internet access to this program.
    Since Jdownloader is based on Java, the program "executable" is a .JAR
    I tried adding firewall expections rules to allow all traffic for the .JAR executable and also for java.exe and javaw.exe (the Java Runtime environmet) but this doesn´t work.

    Also, I have ESS configured on Interactive mode so it will ask me what to do with new applications trying to connect, but it doesen´t.
    Couldn`t find any useful information on the ESS firewall logs either.

    I`m pretty sure it´s an ESS firewall misconfiguration because when I disable firewall protection Jdownloader works great.

    I`d very much appreciate any insights on this matter.

    I was going to suggest that.=P

    Abbo, 69 works prime so far.

    I am in the process of trying to break it. =)

    BTW, Jdownloader works if I set a rule for it to ASK.
    NICE PROG!!!!!!!!!!!


    Read that for uninstalling.

    I also ran a search of my C drive and deleted ALL ESET related material after uninstall.
    I then ran regedit and deleted ALL ESET related items.

    Rebooted and installed the new version like a charm.

    Only solution for me to upgrade.
