Tactical Products and Firewalls

Tactical's COM/IP, DialOut/EZ and Serial/IP redirectors are kernel-level device drivers, therefore they can not be specified as exempt applications in most firewall programs.  The License Manager and TacServe COM Port Server are applications that can be specified as allowed programs when configuring a firewall.

Beginning in version 4.8.4, the Tactical Software install program will modify the Microsoft Windows Firewall settings to allow our products to work correctly.  However, if you are using Serial/IP or COM/IP to accept incoming connections, then you will still need to manually add any incoming TCP port.
