WSE 2012 R2.
Dashboard constantly reports The Network Firewall is turned off for one client PC.
I check that PC and the firewall is turned on.
Why? How to get rid of this? I delete it comes back, so I just set it to ignore. Very annoying.
Thanks for the reply RTW!
I'm having the problem on computers that were never connected before, a Surface Pro 4, and computers that have been through iterations of Windows 7,8,8.1 & 10. It doesn't seem to matter.
Just to be clear..
Installing the connector isn't a problem.
Initiating backups isn't a problem.
Accessing the Dashboard from the server isn't a problem.
Accessing the Dashboard from any client IS THE PROBLEM.
Are you able to access the Dashboard from your W10 machines and restore files without issue?
Thanks for the help!
Were those W10 machines previously connected to the server in previous iterations of W7 or W8.1? If so, were they given the same computer name?
Despite the fact that W10 gave my computer a different name and description than it had previously, I deliberately went into the control panel and changed the name and description to match the old name of the previous W8.1 client.
I don't know if this will help you, but it worked for me after reinstalling the connector.
