windows firewall blocking web service access
Posted on 2005-05-04
I'm stumped. I am running a web service on my local machine (win xp pro) that needs to access a SQL database on another server (win server 2003). With Windows Firewall turned off on the database server, everything works fine. But due to some security problems we have run into, our network guy would like to keep Windows Firewall turned on.
So, I can't for the life of me figure out what port and/or program I need to enable access to in the Windows Firewall exceptions list in order to allow a web service to connect.
