    windows 10 firewall blocks mcsSprinklers

    Hi Michael,

    I am running standalone version on a Win10 machine. Windows auto update resets its firewall and I can no longer access mcsSprinklers web interface from other machines on the LAN. If I turn off the windows defender firewall then it works fine. I already allow C:\Program Files (x86)\mcsSprinklers\mcsSprinklers.exe to go through. Do I need to allow something else?

    I wish I had a specific answer, but networking is not a strength of mine. I dont use Defender so no experience with it. Google should have the answer such as https://www.hostwinds.com/guide/how-...dows-firewall/ where they describe how to configure Windows Firewall to open or close specific ports. There also may be a port range that the firewall will not block by default and you could change to that port in mcsSprinklers Other page.

        Thanks Michael. I opened inbound port 8008, and that fixed it.
