How to remove the firewall for localhost connection?

This job is aborted by timeout after 2 hours which is expected. What happens when I redo the same build/test on my PC is that the testsuite.exe running all the ending tests is blocked by my local firewall. As defaut action, the firewall popups a modal window asking my authorization for running the testsuite.exe exactly at the same test as the failing job on AppVeyor.

Thus, is there a way to deactivate the firewall for the localhost ip address?

    So you suspect that the same kind of window, blocking the build and reaching your 2-hour timeout? This very well can happen and you can check it with RDP. If it is true, please try to use netsh advfirewall firewall add rule and described in this at some article before running your tests.
