When customers try to network moscore to other computers windows firewall blocks the Mysql Database


#1 Updated by Walter Pate almost 7 years ago

Moscore-QM needs to add the path to MySql executable in the windows firewall to allow it to be accessed from a networked computer while windows firewall is running.
or we have to have a method of instucting our customers on what to doo to network the computers
