Re: Firewall blocks ICS (Internet connection sharing)

We have already introduced a patch to fix the ICS issue and most probably it will be applied through normal update. If yuu still face this issue, please try to re-install McAfee and let me know the status.

Re: Firewall blocks ICS (Internet connection sharing)

Please post your Mcafee version numbers and who you get your Mcafee from. This fix was released end of August and unless you have your Mcafee supplied by a partner (they run behind with updates) you should have the fix.

Re: Firewall blocks ICS (Internet connection sharing)

I have a similar issue with sharing internet connection using Intel's My Wifi.

I posted a working, but cumbersome, solution here:

For some reason McAfee firewall handles differently "My Network Connections" that are specified in range or in single. This needs to be fixed.

Note that it recongizes my device under "My Home Network", so if this range/single thing cannot be resolved, at the least it should automatically add an single entry to "My Network Connections" for this device every time it connects (with a different IP address)

Re: Firewall blocks ICS (Internet connection sharing)

Passing this up the line. I use the range but have a fixed Ip set for each machine

Re: Firewall blocks ICS (Internet connection sharing)

i have got the solution. instead of adding you ip address of device to mcafee firewall every time you connect, go to mcafee firewall setting-->my network connection in it look for the ip address which lies between your ip address of intel wifi. selected that ip click edit and change the connection protection type from ''work'' to ''home''.

this is very right solution won't give you anyproblem. i guess mcafee couldn't find out this small change
