    I am unable to connect to a LAN device on my network. I have the network sharing plug-in installed and I am able to access 2 other computers on the system without problem. But, I have a security and household controller system on the network that I can not access with LNS running. It can be accessed fine if I shut LNS down.

    The controller IP is 192.168.0.101 and the port number is 4369. I tried writing a rule to allow it but I wasn't able to get it to work. I am obviously doing something wrong and would appreciate it if some one would tell me how to accomplish this. The controller only has to be accessed on the LAN and isn't accessible from outside the LAN.

    Thanks,

    Barry

    Hi,

    If Look 'n' Stop is blocking this connection, normally you should have an alert in the log.
    If it is the case, the easy way to create a rule is to do a right click on the alert and to choose the creation rule item in the menu that will open.

    Otherwise, to create a rule for port 4369 you can use the following generic rules:
    http://www.looknstop.com/En/rules/rules.htm#TCPClient
    or
    http://www.looknstop.com/En/rules/rules.htm#TCPserver

    but you need to know if the connection is using TCP or UDP and if the connection is created by the PC (in this case take the client rule) or from the controller IP (in this case take the server rule).

    Hello Frederic,

    Thanks for the info... How clear the obvious becomes when pointed out:D ... I should have figured that out myself...

    Thanks again,

    Barry
