Make Connectify work with Avast

Recently I updated Connectify to version 3.1 and it just stopped working.

After sometime of trial and error I found out that Avast Antivirus(I have Avast Internet Security) was blocking some essential ports which Avast uses.

Basically what needs to be done are two things:

  1. Enable the Internet Sharing mode in the Firewall settings

    Enable Sharing Mode

  2. Enable some Firewall packet rules for the application ConnectifyNetServices.exe

    Enable some Packet Rules

That’s set, your ready Smile go ahead and try it.
