Mapping network share fails when firewall is on. Please document which .exe file needs to be whitelisted in the firewall.
The only thing i've found that relates to firewall is to set TC to passive for FTP, but that doesn't apply to network shares.

afaik TC uses WinAPI to map network shares. Can you access network shares with windows exlorer with firewall enabled?

You can also try to map the share in a command prompt:
If that doesn't work, it has nothing to do with TC.

That has nothing to do with any exe.
You have to allow the SMB ports for networking regardless of the exe which uses them.
Any modern firewall has predefined rules for SMB network access.

You need to allow the TCP ports 445 (SMB) and probably 135 (RPC) inbound. But I don't think they can be allowed for specific programs like Total Commander, since these are handled on a lower level of the operating system. Total Commander doesn't communicate by itself with these ports.
