Hi guys thought i'd make a thread just incase people were having troubles or had troubles in the past trying to get gw2 working etc...
If you use AVG and despite adding it to the firewall of .exe's allowed it still blocks it then here is what you have to do to allow AVG to give access to it etc.
Just open following _destination_ports_: 80, 443, 6112, 6600
Advanced firewall settings, System services, User Settings or something like this.
Just add a new rule:
Local port - everything (from 0 to 65535),
Remote port 80,443,6112,6600,
Remote addr all networks,
Now keep in mind ports 80 and 443 are http's...but it will not grant access to gw2 to patch or play etc without these 2 given all access etc.
Hope it helps someone I just went through and fixed this issue so just passing on the information in case others had / have issues. The only reason Im using AVG is i need a temporary free antivirus. If people want to spill their knowledge as to why allowing ports 80 and 443 are bad etc feel free to do so...and also feel free to suggest alternative antivirus programs that are free lol. Irregardless heres a fix. =)
PS: keep in mind this was the same fix that arenanet had posted on their forums prior to bringing em down after the stress test.
