Pinned topic Director 5.20.3 console - Windows firewall rules

‏2010-06-21T15:35:00Z |
Hi, I recently got a Windows 7 64bit PC. I loaded the Director 5.20.3 console on there and it appears to work when the firewall is disabled. I see that there is an exception in there for the twgconw.exe I think it is but it won't let me log on giving an I/O error. Anyone know the exception I have to make to allow this to connect ?

Thanks

    Hi, you need to make sure TCP port 2033 is open (or 4066 if using SSL).

    I know this thread has been opened for a while but i'm experiencing the same issue
    Indeed, while i can log on from a XP machine i can't from a win 7 one.
    As far as i know, Director Console (for v5.20.3 su4) isn't supported on Windows 7 so i guess you won't get any further response.
    Unless you found out a way?
    In my particular case, i'm randomly able to log on from Win7 but most of time i can't
