17. Windows Firewall to Allow Web Browser Administration

Symphony OCR is administered via a web browser interface.  If Windows Firewall (or some other software firewall) prevents Symphony OCR from accepting inbound connections from the web browser, administration will not be possible.

Here's how to configure Windows Firewall to allow Symphony OCR to accept inbound connections:

Configure the Firewall on the Indexer PC:

  1. Connect to the Indexer PC
  2. Control Panel > Security > Windows Firewall
  3. In the left pane, click Allow a program through Windows Firewall.  The screen looks like this:
  4. Select "Allow Another Program"
  5. Select "Symphony OCR"
  6. Click "Add"
  7. Click "OK"
