How to: Create an Inbound Rule in Windows Firewall for the Port of Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Client

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013

This procedure describes how to modify Windows Firewall to allow inbound communication on the port that is used by the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. By default, the port is 8080. You use this procedure after you install the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components on a computer that is running Windows 7 or if you change the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client port to a port other than 8080.

To create an inbound rule

  1. On the computer that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components, on the Start menu, choose Control Panel, choose System and Security, and then choose Windows Firewall.

  2. In the navigation pane, choose Advanced settings.

  3. In the Windows Firewall with Advanced Settings window, in the navigation pane, choose Inbound Rules, and then in the Actions pane, choose New Rule.

  4. On the Rule Type page, choose Port, and then choose the Next button.

  5. On the Protocol and Ports page, choose Specific local ports, and then enter the port number. For example, enter 8080 for the default port of the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client.

  6. Choose the Next button.

  7. On the Action page, choose Allow the connection, and then choose the Next button.

  8. On the Profile page, choose the profiles, and then choose the Next button.

  9. On the Name page, type a name for the rule, and then choose the Finish button.
