There is probably a setting to update or rule to add that will open this up.

Add the Connectify software to the application list in Rules and Zones, allowing it the access it needs to function.

Open the Eset window, press F5 to get to the Advanced Settings, expand Personal firewall, and click Rules and zones.

Under the Rules tab, click New (at the bottom left) and give the rule a suitable name. Select Allow in the Action dropdown, and then click the Local tab.

Leave the Port section blank, and click the Browse button under the Application field. Browse to the executable of the Connectify software (probably in Program Files or Program Files (x86) and then click OK.

Alternatively, in the Advanced settings, click on Personal firewall without expanding it and on the right change the filtering mode to Learning mode. This will allow a set of rules for Connectify to be generated which can then be used in Automatic mode.

Still another method is to use Interactive mode, which will prompt you for every single network access in either direction and require you to allow or deny them, temporarily or permanently. You can then use Automatic mode with exceptions (user defined rules) to implement these exceptions.

Hope this helps.
