i'm testing some of my applications w/c runs on MSDE on the new Windows XP Service Pack2, which actually entails newer & more secure firewall settings.
my application run on both the server & workstations only w/ the firewall switched off.
but the problem comes w/n i have the firewall settings switched on. the applications runs on the server but the workstation applications cannot.
how do i configure my workstations to be in the exception list on the firewall so they can access the server?
i'll already added the workstation's IP address & subnet but still i can't get it connect.
how do i configure my network to use TCP/IP protocol w/ a static port so i can add the workstations to the firewall's exceptions list.
