    Unanswered: SQL Server, an ERP, and Windows Firewall

    Hi everyone,

    I installed an ERP that uses SQL Server 2005 on a client company.

    It's installed this way:

    1 client (only the erp) connects to 1 server (erp + SQL server instance).

    The problem:

    When the server's firewall is on, the client can connect to the server with the ERP, but it can't open listings (lists of items, clients, suppliers, etc).

    In the server's firewall I created an exception for the sqlservr.exe and sqlmaint.exe (normal procedure) and this works everytime I install the erp+sql server. So I don't know what's wrong.

    When I turn off the firewall, everything works fine.

    Info: - the client and server both use windows vista
    - the client's ip address (as seen on ipconfig) is IPv6, but it has both protocols installed)
    - the server's ip is IPv4

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    - Joo

    Allow an exception/open up SQL servers default port in the firewall.
    If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Isn't this what you're telling me to do? If not, what do you mean?

    Thanks in advance.
