VIPRE Firewall is blocking a connection to a virtual machine after adding rules in learning mode.



  • VIPRE Home
  • All Supported Environments

In order to allow the connection to work while VIPRE's firewall is in standard mode, the following rules need to be changed manually to "Allow" in the Manage Rules section of the firewall (NOTE: these changes must be made while the firewall is already in standard mode):

  • DNScache (Services)
  • Iphlpsvc (Services)
  • IGMP (Communication)
  • OtherIcmp (Communication)



VIPRE will reset these rules to block once the firewall is returned to standard mode.
