Unable to connect, firewall issues?

Recommended Posts

Trying to connect LittleNavConnect on the computer with the flight sim to LittleNavMap on a remote computer. Sometimes it does work, but rarely. I've played with port numbers, using IP address, and computer hostname. Both LNM and LNC are updated to most recent version. I know the program's help mentions that the firewall may need to be set up, but I do not know how to do this. Seems like a pretty basic issue that will be obvious once I've addressed it. Does anyone have a lead on a solution?

 

Many thanks,

Chris

Thank you. I discovered the reason it didn't work was because the firewall only allowed connections from LNM and LNC if it was on a "Private" connection. Apparently I had set my internet up as a "Public" connection, which meant those programs were being blocked. I have two networks in my house, so most likely one was set to Public and the other was Private, which would explain why I could sometimes get it to work.
