Can't connect Incoming LAN Connections Exclusively because of Windows 10 Firewall

I have my Windows 10 PC set to Accept Exclusively but I can't connect to it unless i disable the Windows Firewall which I don't want to do.  Anyone seen a workaround?

Hi @cziarno 

I think that you could adjust "easy" to the Windows 10 firewall if you give a look at this article.

During the step "Go ahead and click on New Rule and then you’ll get a dialog asking what type of rule" choose a Program, select the app you want and choose to allow it.

After applying the new rule, reboot your computer and see if is working. Note that it may need to format the same rule to the other pc in your LAN and do the same before connecting.

Best regards

Boom!  That was it.  Wasn't sure what "Teamviewer" to choose so I chose the "TeamViewerService" for Inbound on Private.

Thanks!

Thank you for coming back and update @cziarno. I'm glad this worked for you.

This will help future users facing the same issue to solve it easily.

Best regards.

p.s.

- Note that you can add more than one service/tasks of the same app folder to the Windows firewall to be allowed, in case you needed an app to communicate properly.
