bypassing firewall

I'm playing Star Wars SWTOR and the game kept disconnecting me until I turned the firewall completly off.  how can I turn the firewall back on again while still allowing the games two files free access through the firewall unobstructed?

Re: bypassing firewall

Hi

   Are you turning only the firewall OFF to make the game work?

If yes

   Create an exception in Settings->Network->Smart Firewall->Program Control Configure->Add those two files and select the option allow. Now go ahead and try.

   If no, post the steps you had followed to turn it OFF.

Re: bypassing firewall

I shut firewall off completly to solve the problem.

I tried your solution, the two programs were already listed.  I changed them to allow.  I'll find out if it worked or not Saturday, no time now to test.  Thanks.

Re: bypassing firewall

I ran a short test conversations came up fine when they weren't before, within the game.  Still have some signal strength issues but I think maybe this solved the prior problem of the firewall slowing things down and disconnecting me.
