I have a problem with Windows 7 Firewall

I added an exception for port 1433 and I set the scope as follows:

- Local IP Address: Any IP Address for my local LAN

- Remote IP address - These IP Addresses where I added my home IP address.

I can access the port from my home, but I cannot access the port from local LAN.

What can I do?


Many thanks,

Open the Control Panel, click on Windows Firewall, click on Restore defaults.


Did you use the Advanced Settings to create a new rule IP addresses?
