What must my firewall allow for Brave to work?


Fresh install of Brave 0.22.669 x64 on Win7.

I can’t load any pages because of ERR_ACCESS_DENIED. This is after allowing brave.exe both inbound and outbound in Windows Firewall.

When I turn the firewall off, I’m able to browse, so clearly there is/are thing(s) I need it to allow besides just brave.exe. But which things?

Thanks in advance


I figured it out: I was allowing the wrong brave.exe - the one in AppData\Local. I had to allow the one in the child directory app-0.22.669

This is for anyone reading this who blocks all outbound connections by default and must whitelist newly installed internet-facing apps.
