FileWave Installers by default leave Windows Firewall settings untouched...


  • FW Admin
  • (Other tools, features, and applications that will be needed)


  1. Use the attached .bat files to open the firewall for the respective executables at their standard install locations.
    If you've installed a filewave component to a nonstandard path, please adapt the path inside the .bat files.
  2. The Scripts allow both in- and outbound connections on all ports for the installed filewave executables and follow the basic syntax :

    Windows Vista/7
    netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="FileWave Client" action=allow program="C:\Program Files\ (x86)\FileWave\fwcld.exe" enable=yes dir=in description="Filewave Client Inbound Access, usually only port 20010 is needed for client monitor connections"

    Windows XP
    netsh firewall add allowedprogram program = "C:\Program Files\FileWave\fwbooster.exe" name = "FileWave Booster" mode = ENABLE profile = ALL
