Hmmm, is it time to add an initialization sub-routine to HSS that detects if the firewall settings are incorrect and asks the user if they want to correct them? Or maybe ask and give an option to auto-fix the registry in future? Just a thought...
Not really. You are talking about looking into the server for firewall settings, which would mean putting something on the server and/or opening it up to the client. Something I have been very strict about not doing. You can't use ping or something like that because that does not actually denote a firewall problem. Dave's problem was due to PerfectDisk 12 disabling the firewall settings on the server. Something no application should have been doing, especially without asking!
However, I am placing this along with other troubleshooting tips within the help section of HSS v3.0.
