• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I downloaded Ezscan to test out the software after hearing differing opinions and looking at a possible NXDN scanner. Just an FYI to others but when I tried to do the library updates and others it always failed. A little troubleshooting revealed that my router running Norton web safe to block malicious domains was blocking the update website. I can get around it by turning off web safe. Going to nortons site it shows the update website has not yet been tested. Whistler may want to get the website in the safe list.

You have to go in allowed applications and set (Ezscan) to Custom then make a green check for each box from left to right or Norton will block the application from updating. Or just use windows firewall thats built in or get a router with a built in firewall,thats much easier to deal with in my opinion.

Thanks but Norton SAfe Web does not run on the PC. It actually runs on the Belkin router that all my devices connect to. There is no way to set an application like EzScan as allowed. The malicious website filter is on or off. If I am using a web browser to get to a blocked site I can click for a one time exception. Using EzScan I never get that option. Web filtering is on by default on a lot of new WiFi routers.
