Entry Says ”
I am a big fan of the Avast! line of security products. I just upgraded from Pro to Internet Security since I got a new laptop and getting the Pro version for that was the same price as the Internet Security version and I figured that an added firewall couldn’t hurt. Naturally, it’s never that simple and I realized that after I rebooted the firewall was causing the web browsers in my virtual machines to lose access to the Internet. I was still able to ping things via the command line but I couldn’t do much else.
In order to fix this I found out that you just need to do the following steps and you’re back online:
2.Click the Firewall tab
3.Make sure the Firewall Settings sub-tab is selected
4.Click “Expert Settings” next to the “Stop” button
5.Check “Internet Connection Sharing mode”
Now your VMs are back online.”
and we confirm it!
