I downloaded the latest version of the monero gui. I have some monero on my ledger nano x and the installation and the connection with the ledger works fine.
The Daemon failed to start and the gui could not connect to the internet. I think it is a problem with the firewall, so I add monerod and monero-wallet-gui to the exceptions for windows defender in windows 10.
But nothing happens and after 120 seconds I again got the following message:

Would be really nice, if the community could help. Thanks in advance;=)
