Hi John,

I have seen on some Windows systems — can’t be specific on exactly which 
versions, Window 10 for sure — the first time you run 4D Server a Windows 
system dialog box will be displayed telling you network ports are being opened 
and asks you to allow or block these ports. That is probably what created these 
Firewall entries. You only see the dialog one time and if you select the wrong 
option 4D Server will be deaf to network traffic.
