Hi,

I started using ExitLag to connect games to the internet due to severe lag. However, whenever I start up ExitLag, I get the IP address 23.82.136.147 blocked due to either malware or trojan. Is this a false positive or should I make sure this address is always blocked?

Thanks for any information.

My firewall is blocking ExitLag. What should I do?

Add ExitLag as exception to any active firewall or antivirus. Some security tools might accuse ExitLag as dangerous, due the packet redirection.
Check below how to do that for the following tools:

It must be due to some server(s) the games are trying to connect to. Steam and many others use p2p connections to play online. As long as the games aren't at risk for connecting to malicious content (which they shouldn't be), you should be able to simply exclude the games'and ExitLags executables from Web Protection using the method described under the Allow an application to connect to the Internet section of this support article.

Sorry to comment here but, I can correct your words? (constructive correction)

Should say: "As long as the games aren't at risk for connecting to malicious IP"

As Malwarebytes consider the IP as malicious due the high number of bad domains, but the game domain / game data downloaded, is not malicious
