Contractor says AVG free edition blocking outgoing connection. Says AVG Internet Security wouldn't do this? Are they right?
Posted on 2008-10-15
I have been informed that because we use AVG Free edition we cannot send data down our network to a windows server. It is suggested that if we used the paid-for 'Internet Security' version we will definitely not encounter errors with sending data. Surely this is wrong. The only troublesome software we currently have on the PC is Symantec PCAnywhere. I would like to know the following then:
- If we had AVG Internet Security would we have the same problem?
- What is the difference anyway between free and paid-for?
- Would another program be the cause, such as PCAnywhere. The ports we currently use to send data down are 20000 and 5630 - 5645.
thanks in advance
