McAfee sabotaging scenario downloads?

Recommended Posts

We've received reports that, allegedly, McAfree Net Guard, even though configured to whitelist all Steel Beasts related files and folders, prevents scenario downloads from the host in (internet) network sessions.

 

Does anyone here have experience with that product/knows where to look/what to change?

Sjr162 - has reported this issue.

 

Basically he can not download a file from a host during a network session. He needs to download it independently (e.g. as a PM) before he can join a network session.

 

We had a brief look into it and it seems McAfee can only whitelist / exclude files not folders. As a result you can't exclude "Downloads" but you need to know the name of the file, before its  downloaded from the Host.

 

As a result the temp file from the Host can't be created because its not included in the exemption list. :(

 

I'll send him a PM to prompt him reading this and potentially contacting you about it.

Well, we're not really here to collect more victim cases to be honest. If there's no solution, I suppose our only recommendation is to disable the software if you're about to participate in a network session, and to contact McAfee about their ideas of a solution.
