Does anti-virus software’s prevent TCPClient and WebClient from functioning? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to know if some anti-virus software prevents TCPClient and WebCleint to connect to a remove server.

    We have a Client/Server based application (developed using .Net) which use TCPClient and WebClient to exchange data. Some users have reported that if the antivirus software is running on their machine, then our application does not work. The name of the anti-virus software is not known.

    Please suggest how we can make are application to run in trusted mode, so that no anti-virus software prevents it from functioning

  • Yes Anti-virus with firewall installed can block the TCPClient port from working. You have to add the port as Trusted in the firewall.
