Open Port On Firewall


Hi All,

I need to open port 1433 on my computer to be able to access SQL Server on the machine from a remote machine.

I have tried to add a rule with no program path, allow and 1433 set as the port. I click OK and nothing. I cannot see anywhere in the list where this rule is added. Every rule listed has a program attached?

I simply want to open a port. Thats it.

Can someone please tell me how to do this in BD. It should be simple. BD seems to hide simplicity.


  • Rules without programs can only be seen in the "Advanced rules edit" window.
