I'm always having difficulties connecting to a SQL Server on a network through the Windows firewall from a Windows 8 PC to a Windows 7 PC.
I've got a software application that automatically adds the following exe as an exception to both inbound and outbound rules.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.ZURE\MSSQL\Binn\sqlservr.exe
The only way to get it to work is to disable to firewall on both PCs for private and public networks, then connect to the database.
After a successful connection I can turn it back on again and it's working.
My problem is that I have a lot of users who are not very familiar with the advanced setting on Windows.
I just want them to run my installation and start working.
