I just reformatted my MacBook Pro for a clean Big Sur installation.
Then I added Norton Internet Security.
Now in the Control Panel Network section, there is a service called "Norton Security".
If I turn it off, NIS will complain to fix the settings and turn it on.
Problem is that I use a backup software (GoodSync) that mounts an SMB access point each evening to backup some stuff. Even though I added it to NIS config to allow it to use all local 192.168 IP addresses, it is blocked by the Norton service. I lose the SMB connection and then nothing happens. I even lose Internet access.
I have to turn it off to reset connections and then NIS starts complaining again.
I never had problem with previous macOS version and NIS installed. And that Norton Security service was not present in the network configuration section.
Any way to definitely turn this off and have NIS stop complaining about fixing it?
This just makes me work without safety nets for my backups now.
Thanks for any help
