When I installed AVG Internet security on my  network - server and work stations. The firewall blocks my workstations from reaching the "Mapped Drive" which each must access.  Is there away to set AVG to allow access to the the folder  on the the "Mapped Drive"?

You would need port 445 to be opened to be able to see the shared folders.

Ideally I would put the IP address of my fileserver/AD/DC to the exception list so that all the other rules would stay intact and I would not require to create rules for AD/DNS etc.

Further for file sharing you would need port 445 to be opened, as you would need it for the printers and sharing from other computers as well.

For adding IP address to the exception look at the below link:

For adding port to the exception look at the link below:

I have just changed the port number and other things are the abstract from the above link;
1. Open the AVG Program. click "Tools" -> "Firewall settings"
2. In the left tree menu under Profiles, expand the profile you are currently using and click "System services."
3. Click "Manage user system rules," and then click Add.
4. In the new window, for "protocol," select "TCP"
5. For "direction," select "Both ways," and then click OK.
6. For "local port(s)," click "All ports (0-65535)"
7. For "remote port(s)," select "User selected ports" and allow port 445
8. For "remote address(es)," select "All Networks," and then click OK.
9. Confirm all changed by clicking OK.
