Hello Experts,

I have a SQL Anywhere server - server
and SQL Anywhere Client - Cliengt

I found that the Windows firewall on the server was blocking incoming ODBC processes from the client.

(If I turn off windows firewall, it starts working)

I want to leave the firewall on though. I tried to create an incoming rule tro aceppt all trafic from the client's IP but it did not work.

I did this to create new rule:

1. Select new rule
2. Chosse Custom then Scope
3. Enter the IP in Which IP tp apply rule (I actually tried selecting ALL too)
4. Select Allow the connection
5. Kept next defaults on Advanced tab (everything selected)

zCAn anyone see what is wrong here?

Thanks!

Did you try to set the rule by program?  Or also did you make sure that it's not a specific port?  Hopefully that will help lead you the right direction.
