Network options freeze LW

Hi, suddenly without making any changes I have trouble with network render.
When I click on Network options from inside LW the program freezes and the only option is to kill it from task manager.
I had this problem with 2020.0.2 and updating to 2020.2.4 hasn't fixed the problem.
The standalone works fine.
It seems like a LW plugin issue. I have cleaned the octane plugin, the configs and installed it again but the problem persists.
I have tried it from another LW instalation and it works.

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

To be honest, I have no idea about what could be the problem. It is the first time I see this problem :(

This problem could come from a windows update, perhaps due to changes in the firewall, that is blocking the network ports used by the Octane network from the Layout, freezing it. The problem could come even from the antivirus. Have you tried to fully disable both the Windows firewall and any antivirus that you could have in your system?

Thanks,

Yes, this happened after a Windows update, which messed my networking a bit. Firewall wasn't blocking it, I checked.
I don't remember how exactly did I fix it, but now it seems to be working as it should be.
Thank you.
