Summary

FileWave Installers by default leave Windows Firewall settings untouched. This article provides scripts that opens the Windows Firewall so the Windows processes can accept connections from the outside.

Procedure

Use the attached .bat files to open the firewall for the respective executable at their standard install locations.
If you've installed a Filewave component to a nonstandard path, please adapt the path inside the .bat files.
