Can't access computers from outside internal network

My Windows 10 recently did the latest and greatest upgrade from microsoft.  Since the upgrade, I can no longer access computer on my internal home network from outside the network.  It has worked well in the past.  I can access them if they are all on the same network.  Is there a switch or option I need to allow to get this working again?

Re: Can't access computers from outside internal network

Issue was firewall.  I just had to go in under the apps and check the access from public locations and was able to get in once again.  Windows must have changed the setting on an update.

Re: Can't access computers from outside internal network

I would check both the windows firewall (disable it for diagnostic purposes and see if it works then) and then your network firewall provided by your ISP (Set it to a lower security level). See if either of those make a differance. Then report back please.

Re: Can't access computers from outside internal network

What does this mean "under the apps"?  Can someone please explain how to do this?  I.e. "enable access from public locations".  Thanks in advance.
