Each time I launch Vortex the app says it is unable to log me in to Nexus due to firewall settings, but the app is allowed through the firewall on both public and private networks. It also can't be used to download mods, when I first installed I was logged in but it failed to connect due to firewall. I thought the issue might be that it was installed on a secondary drive, but uninstalling completely and reinstalling on my main hard drive did not fix the issue. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times on the secondary drive. Nothing has fixed the issue, and I haven't had the problem with any other programs. I've blocked and unblocked it in firewall settings as well.

 

This is the latest version of Vortex (1-1-1-5-1575885790), running on 64 bit Windows 10 Home.

Well, if it keeps insisting it's your firewall settings, then I'm guessing that you have some firewall setting that needs to be changed.

What EXACTLY is the Error Message?

The message just says "Network connect was not permitted, please check your firewall settings". Even with the windows firewall turned off completely it still gives the same message.

I also got this firewall error. I had previously logged into Vortex using the Nexus account. I started the download for a KOTOR file but it failed in Vortex with the error: Network connect was not permitted, please check your firewall settings. I closed Vortex and reopened it again. Then started the download again from Nexus website. This time the download started correctly and continued. I did not need to turn off or adjust any firewall settings. Hope this helps :smile:
