F-secure blocking DNS

hyvokar Posts: 169 Explorer



On what basis F-secure Client security and Server Security blocks DNS searches?

I mean I've spent couple of hours banging my head on the wall, trying to figure out why www.paypal.com does not resolve in our company. 


After I disabled f-secure (net stop fsgkhs) on client computers and dns servers, the searches started working. How do I disable DNS blocking on f-secure products? I mean this is idiotic.


Another site I came across that was dns-blocked by f-secure was www.kryptex.org

    Sorry for my reply. I'm only F-Secure user (their home solutions).


    By blocking DNS -> did you mean that page is not visible with any of supported browsers (by F-Secure);

    Because with HTTPS and Microsoft Edge (or disabled F-Secure extension) -> page is not loaded (not clearly visible that website is blocked by F-Secure).


    And, for example, with F-Secure home solution -> your second URL is harfmul-rated (under F-Secure Security Cloud).


    OR your situation completely based on their Firewall deisgn?

    No. I mean dns resolution, nslookup

    Maybe F-Secure Business with certain place about this...

    but as potential workarounds -> maybe possible to use F-Secure SAS:



    OR their Support-request (for Business solutions):



    // as quote from their website:

    F-Secure's Business Support is available 24/7. It is an easy, reliable and punctual service ready to solve all your queries.

    sounds as -> possible to ask them about anything. :)
