Mcafee blocks Tcp connection what i need to do!!

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am using System.Net.Sockets.Socket.Connect to connect a remote server.

I see that the call succeeds on most of the systems, but fails on a few.

I tried to debug the issue and observe that system which have McAfee Antivirus installed have the issue. Connection succeeds, if I disable 'Access protection' feature in the Virus scan console of McAfee.

But as per the client policy, I cannot disable the 'Access protection' feature of McAfee. As per them, they are able to run other programs which does TCP socket connection with other servers.

What might be wrong specific to my application? Is there a way to specify to bypass blocking of my application?

 

Appreciate for help!
