Windows Firewall Hides Server from Clients

Your post



     If I completely disable Windows Firewall on my server machine, my database shows up in the "Open Remote..." dialog on local client machines. But if I re-enable it, it disappears. Oddly, I can still access the database from the Open Recent menu.


     I have tried enabling ports 40, 443, 2399, 5003, and 16000 on both TCP and UDP in Windows Firewall, to no avail. There are no rules in the firewall that are blocking those ports. I'm confused.
