Firewall Setup

Rules allow traffic between your computer, programs, system services and users. A new rule must be created in the firewall settings.

The instructions below serve as an example for setting up a firewall on an MS Windows system.

Together with your company’s IT administrator, check if you have any additional firewall and/or antivirus software on your network that needs configuration.

From the strat menu, type and open Windows Firewall with Advanced Security or select Control Panel > System & Security > Windows Firewall.

Windows Firewall can also be accessed by using the Run combination (start key + r), typing WF.msc
