Simple question about XP firewall


Recommended Posts



I installed the uniform server to Windows Home Edition. When I press the Server_Start ms-dos bat-file my Windows XP firewall asks:


"Do you want to keep blocking this program?


Name: mysqld-opt"


and also same for the "Apache HTTP Server".


I guess I should unblock them but I just ask this here for to be sure. So do I unblock them?


Thanks for help.

Yep you are 100% correct, make sure they are unblocked otherwise you will have no working servers.


I personally like to see these alarm bells activated, at least I have some confidence that they are doing something.


All the best

Ric :)


PS Take a look at section 2:
