Resolution

The iperfs tool is being monitored by EDPAs Network Access.

You will need to fingerprint this application to have Network Access ignored/not monitored.

To Ignore this application you will need to log into the Enforce UI as Administrator and navigate to the following URL:

https://localhost/ProtectManager/EndpointApplicationControlList.do 

Add a Fingerprint and use ipref\.exe for the Binary name, then select to not monitor Network Access.
