How to configure Vipre Internet Security to work with PhotoSync?

  3. Click the 'Exceptions...' button to see the list of firewall exceptions. In the Applications tab please check for an existing entry of PhotoSync. PhotoSync Companion is usually installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\PhotoSync\PhotoSync.exe. If the entry already exist please select the entry and choose 'Edit', if the entry doesn't exist, please 'Add' a new application and search the installed application executable on your hard disk which should be in the above mentioned location.

  4. The PhotoSync Application Rule should be the following:

    Trusted Inbound: Allow
    Trusted Outbound: Allow
    Not-trusted Inbound: Allow
