I use VNC to make connections to another computer on my home network. After putting Malwarebytes Pro on both computers, neither one can make a VNC connection to the other. How can I prevent Malwarebytes from blocking the ports that VNC uses? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hello and :welcome:

I am not aware of Malwarebytes blocking VNC ports, I have many computers running Malwarebytes together with VNC and I am able to connect to all the computers without any issues.

Is it possible that your firewall is blocking this connection?

Problem solved. Before installing malwarebytes, I had shut down the VNC server on both machines. When I rebooted the servers did not start up again. Manually restarted them. Working now. Thanks for the info that malwarebytes and VNC play well together -- that caused me to look elsewhere for the soruec of the problem.
