Your Firewall might be blocking access. While we don't recommend turning off the Firewall, you might check to see if the Firewall vendor has other options or perhaps a lower security setting.
To avoid conflicts you should avoid using two different firewalls at the same time. Most third-party firewalls automatically disable the Windows firewall when installed to avoid problems.
To access the Windows Firewall:
Windows 8: Press
- Windows key and X at the same time, then Control Panel.
Windows 7 and older - Select Start, Control Panel
If in Vista Classic View or XP, select
If using Vista non-Classic view, select
Security, then Security Center. If using Windows 7, select System and Security, then Windows Firewall.
At this point you can view the Windows Firewall status. To change settings:
If Windows Vista/XP in the left pane, select
Windows Firewall. If using Windows 8/7, no additional action is needed.
The left pane has options to enable or disable the Windows Firewall or to allow a specific program through the firewall.
