AS OF 5/2 LIVE UPDATE HAS OLD BUG

The latest live update for constant guard xfinity version of Norton had this old bug creep back

https://community.norton.com/en/forums/connection-blocking-sierra-10124-and-security-731-b21

ssh / telnet / ping / and at times other network services like dns etc. are being blocked

temporary solution is to turn off smart firewall monitoring.

Even though individual settings for ports or programs are set to allow it will not fix issue

here were update details that broke it this was on WIN7 64

Hello The link your reference is to discusses MAC OS, your post suggests you are on Windows 7. Reset your firewall and reboot. Let us know if that helped.

Cheers

Re: AS OF 5/2 LIVE UPDATE HAS OLD BUG

Reboot did not solve issue I am leaving smart firewall off.

Its also causing reboot issues as services try to reconnect

Its going to need a bug release to this stream

I'm running the standard Norton Security 22.14.0.54 and current in all my updates with a Win7 x64 system.  Ping and other network commands so far seem to be working fine ... maybe an issue specific to the Xfinity suite?

Thanks Yank, was hoping you'd chime in since you are most familiar with the Xfinity issue.
