I use no other firewalls, and I do use ESET for my A/V (A/V only because over time I prefer how GW works, so that’s my only “firewall”)
I am sure I will need to submit some logs - but in addition to this - when i switch modes (from say “block all”, to “Ask to connect” for example) it took nearly (I may be estimating wrong) 30 seconds to finally turn back on and allow the traffic again.
manually turning the windows firewall off and on - takes argubly, zero time.
Which version of ESET do you use? I found this article. It says one version of ESET should work fine with GlassWire while another will not.
We use the Windows Firewall API for blocking because it’s trusted by over a billion Windows users, it works whether or not GlassWire is running (if your PC is booting up or even if GlassWire is killed), it doesn’t conflict with other apps, and it’s super light on resources.
as stated I am not using ESET firewall. I am using Windows/Glasswire.
I find it rather degrading that the ONLY question you asked was answered already.(I even made it a point to say I wasn’t using it, even though that’s the product I buy)
and conveniently ignored the question(s)
and to be fair, saying it’s being used by over a billion users doesn’t actually “HELP” your case, internet explorer is used by as many, and is considered totally crap and Microsoft begs people to not use it.
anyway, it still happens; the firewall randomly turns off, or doesn’t turn on when coming awake.
I believe @Ken_GlassWire was saying that one version of ESET has a built in firewall, while another does not. I don’t believe there is such a thing as “ESET firewall” specifically, but one version of ESET has a built in firewall that could cause the problem you are experiencing because it would disable our firewall and make it show as off.
The ESET link says “Running two firewalls on your operating system can lead to conflicts and configuration errors.”
If you could check what version of ESET you have then it could help us find the problem and fix the issue.
