  • You can also turn off the firewall in OneCare temporarily to confirm that it is in fact the OneCare firewall that is blocking your program. You'll find the off/on toggle on the Firewall tab under change settings. If the program works with the firewall off, you will likely need to use jim's instructions to allow it access. If that does not work and it works only with the firewall off, please contact OneCare support.
