I was wondering why my MySQL wouldn’t work.. how come my scripts are not working.. why I couldn’t connect to my database. It took me a while to figure out that it was just ESET Nod32’s firewall that was blocking my applications! Arggh!
I am now setting my firewall in policy-based mode but it’s also annoying when it asks my permission every time an app tries to have inbound and outbound communications. Well, maybe it’s better to create rules and just switch to automatic filtering mode. I still like and want ESET Nod32 as my antivirus. It has protected me from malicious softwares and viruses for some time already. Thanks, ESET! 🙂
