HomeBoxMinderHow Do I....Allow BoxMinder though my firewall

5.10. Allow BoxMinder though my firewall

In Windows, you can set the Windows Firewall to block or unblock certain programs. BoxMinder may be blocked by your firewall or anti-virus software from connecting to the internet.

Here are instructions to unblock:

Open the Control Panel

Select System and Security

In the Windows Firewall section, select Allow a program through Windows Firewall.

Unchecking the box to the left of the program name disallows it from accessing network resources, while checking it allows access.

If the program you wish to block or unblock is not listed, you can click the "Allow another program..." button to add it.
Choose the application in the list and select "Add". If the program is not in this list, use the "Browse..." button to select the program file manually.

You will have to click the "Change settings" button at the top of the screen so you may click on "Allow another program"

Highlight Boxminder and click on Add

Now the Boxminder software is allowed.

Click OK to close
