the last few major AVG updates have been a pain, the new fetures in the firewall or lack there of is garbage and horrable,
it blocks all my local traffic between systems, im haveing issues keeping shared drives active,
it wants to keep blocking my NAS drive and server shared folders/maped folders
its blocking my printer now as well,
its also still blocking a few of our systems that use CNC equipment, and keeps altering the connection or just blocking it ,
i only have about 20 systems on this network
this is utter bullshit,
ive gone through all the settings on all the systems, what i get to work for the mapped drives is ,
i turn off the firewall, make the mapped folders, then i go to exceptions on the main Paige, then i exclude the newly created shares, then i turn the firewall back on , and they stay, even after restart,
but my printer and other CNC connections do not,
also i get blocked just dialing my server ,
ive sold AVG products retail for almost 5 years, i am verry verry familiar with the products,
i would just turn the stupid fucker off, but now it makes everythign red and the employees get nervous and click fix it becasue they cant leave well enough alone or better yet when the program update goes through it bumps the settigns and halters production
, and my shit screws up between 20 god dam systems every day,
my employeer has already told me to look for other software, im looking in to avast now, becasue it is now AVG's parent company,
is this why the new versions suck ? are they just running it into the ground?
what was wrond withthe old setup for the firewall, and why can i not just turn that feture off all togeather without seeing red flags and getting email notifications?
this is a bullshit ass closed loop and im starting to feel AVG can no longer meet our needs, i cant even tally the number of nam hours this has caused me recently since the update,
and AVG is startign to become a diminishing return for us, and is no longer "cost effective" if its halting production, when things use to just work, and the settings use to be there that now are not apparent at all, and what does resembel it , doesnt work apparently
now im done with the rant,
what can i do in the new firewall, to allow my printer to stay connected, and my other network attached devices, ?
if this cant be done reasonably , considering there was no other main changes other that, simple driver updates, ie printer, if not then im shit canning AVG all together, and requesting a refund on my multi licence subscription ,
there is no need for this kind of software behavior, unless you want to loose customers
