Filemaker server 13 configuring the firewall settings on windows 7

Your post

     Could someone help me with this.

     I am having a problem connecting to my filemaker database using webdirect. It seems that I am missing something with windows firewall on the server. When I disable the firewall settings on the server I can connect but when they are active I cannot. 

     Within the firewall I have enabled filemaker server within "Allow programs to communicate through windows firewall" this allows me to to connect to the server through "Open Remote File" "Local Host".

     I am no system administrator so I could use some very simple step by step instructions. smiley
