Avast antivirus update (both program and virus signatures) fails to do DNS resolution when the Glasswire Firewall is on. I have to turn it off every time and update manually.
I normally have Glasswire set to ‘ask to connect’, but there is no popup.
There are a bunch of Avast apps already in the list, all of which are unblocked: Avast Antivirus, Avast Antivirus Installer, Avast Behavior Shield, Avast Emergency Update, Avast Overseer, Avast Service.
Even presuming I could figure out which exe or service does the update, I don’t see a way to manually add it to Glasswire’s list.
How do I let the update through the firewall?
EDIT: Went into Windows Firewall Advanced and looked through the Glasswire_App rules that pointed at executables in the Avast folder. Found a few Blocked rules and deleted them. Somehow Glasswire must have made both an Allow and a Block rule, and deleting the Block made it work again.
