Windows 7: Firewall Exceptions

19 Jun 2011   #1

Firewall Exceptions

I have a Logitech Squeezebox Touch which requires that I add exceptions for 3 ports as follows:

Port 3483 UDP
Port 3483 TCP
Port 9000 TCP

The Squeezebox is being used to play music that is stored on my PC's HD and so needs access to that. When I disable the Windows 7 Firewall all works well but I don't want to do that.

I know how to do it, Firewall/advanced/new rule but I don't know exactly what to do.

Do I have to create an Inbound rule and an outbound rule for each of the 3 instances above (6 rules in all) or what?

Help would be appreciated.

Hi Simon,

I think thats correct an inbound and outbound rule for each port. This tutorial might also be of help:

Finally - success

I created 6 exceptions, 1 inbound and 1 outbound, for each of the 3 programs/ports that were listed in the manual and now all is working well.

By the by, can't speak too highly of the Squeezebox Touch.

Thanks for the link too.

Cheers, Simon
