Firewall was disabled during installation but is now enabled. How do I add the rules to Windows firewall?


There is a script in the LifeKeeper directory that will allow you to enable the firewall rules. The script is located in:

<LifeKeeper Root Directory>\support\firewallsetup.bat

By opening a command prompt and executing firewallsetup.bat <LifeKeeper Root directory>, you can add the rules. If the rules had been added, the script will not add duplicate rules.

If you open the Windows firewall (wf.msc), you will see the inbound rules prefixed with the LifeKeeper label.

Note: If you have created specific rules that have disabled the ports required by SIOS Protection Suite, the installation program will disable but will not delete those rules.
