Another "Could not connect to partner" bummer!

I have reviewed a lot of messages having the same or similar subject matter.  Here is my addition to the problem:

  1. Two LAN machines,
  2. personal use,
  3. ping works both ways,
  4. Windows 10 machine cannot connect to Windows 7 machine,
  5. Windows 7 machine can connect to Windows 10 machine,
  6. Re-installed TeamViewer on Windows 10 machine,
  7. Both machines run same version 15.1.3937,
  8. Re-installed TeamViewer on Windows 7 machine: no version change,
  9. Both machines restarted after manually closing all open programs,
  10. Windows 7 machine is a Dell Optiplex 990,
  11. Windows 10 machine is a Lenovo Legion Y520,

Prior to this episode I had bilateral communication between both machines.

My research on this problem shows complaints extending back in time to 2006.  Do the programmers in the IT department ever read these community messages?

I'm open to having them contact me using TeamViewer and getting (hopefully) to the bottom of this problem.
