Hi
I have an SQL DATABase-Server. On this server there is an application installed and  it is configured in such a way so that clients PCs connect to this application on SQL DATABase-Server with protocol: http and port: 8080.

On the client PC If I open the application and within the application there is a tab configured with  protocol HTTP: and Port is 8080 to connect to the SQL DATABase-Server.

I did few testing’s on the server, if I disable the firewall on the SQL DATABase-Server the client PCs connects Successfully to the SQL DATABase-Server.  

But If I enable the firewall the connection fails on the client PCs.

So I was told that I need to open an inbound rule on the SQL DATABase-Server ( Windows 2012) firewall for this application with protocol: HTTP and port: 8080 for all our client PCs to successfully connect to this application.

On the inbound rule properties windows-Protocols and ports-Protocol type, HTTP protocol is not listed to select.

Please post me some tutorials
Any help much appreciated

To open a port in the Windows firewall for TCP access
1.      On the Start menu, click Run, type WF.msc, and then click OK.
2.      In the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security, in the left pane, right-click Inbound Rules, and then click New Rule in the action pane (upper right corner).
3.      In the Rule Type dialog box, select Port, and then click Next.
4.      In the Protocol and Ports dialog box, select TCP. Select Specific local ports, and then type the port number required (in your case 8080). Click Next.
5.      In the Action dialog box, select Allow the connection, and then click Next.
6.      In the Profile dialog box, seIect the relevant profile you want the rule to apply to (I would select all profiles). Then click Next.
7.      In the Name dialog box, type "Allow Port 8080” and add a description if required. Then click Finish

You could also configure rule via group policy if you have multiple servers to run against.
