How to allow applications to communicate through the Windows Firewall: - Do you want your applications to enter the firewall? Most of the time, you want to adopt the best of your security features. Windows 10 will be able to provide you, to protect your system from prevailing external attacks, such as passwords and pins. Windows 10 also plays its role in helping protect the system by using a software component called Windows Firewall.
The firewall, as the name suggests, is a component between the external sources and the internal modules of the system that filters any unwanted sources from entering the system.
There are many applications that require you to contact Windows Firewall, but you may have been blocked from doing so, either because they have this firewall as an obstacle or because you intentionally blocked them yourself, preventing them from recovering.
So now we present a solution on how to communicate with the firewall.
How do you do this?
Press and hold the Win and X buttons on your keyboard at the same time when a menu appears. Choose the control panel option.
In the control panel, at the top right, we have a view by option, select the option of the small icons among the three.
A menu sequence will appear. Choose the Windows Firewall menu as shown below.
In the interface that opens, on the left, you will find a series of options. Tap the second option Allow an application or function through Windows Firewall.
A window will appear with a gray list of options, because they cannot be managed. To work around this, choose the change settings button.
Choose the applications of your request and then tap the checkmark button on your rights to allow their access.
Also, if you want to allow access to many other applications, click the Allow another app button at the bottom. When choosing the Browse button, you can select an application that was not visible in the menu shown above. Choose the application, click the Add button and then provide access to it.
Now you have a way to help applications attack the firewall too!
