Q:Using Bid Maximizer With a Firewall

Bid Maximizer needs to connect to the internet to run, so some firewall or anti-virus software may affect the running of Bid Maximizer if not set up properly.

When you first run Bid Maximizer your firewall may trigger an alert asking you if you want to allow the program access to the internet:

  1. Please click Allow

  2. Check the box which says "Remember this setting" or "Always allow"

If you are experiencing difficulties and connection problems please follow the instructions to add Bid Maximizer to the list of trusted programs in your firewall.

Note: the exact steps may be different depending on your specific firewall program
