WinXp Firewall settings

By Old-Flyer ·
I have a couple WinXp Pro systems that will not resolve names through a PPTP tunnel with the WinXp firewall turned on. I can communicate with these host if I use the IP directly. Can anyone help with adjusting the firewall settings on these remote host.

Open the Control Panel and go to the Firewall Icon and click on it and then chose the Exceptions Tab in the pop up window and add the program to the list with the Add button.

When this was originally setup you should have been prompted to allow this setting through the firewall and if this wasn't accepted it will remain blocked. Now you'll have to manually add itto the Exceptions List or you could also go into the Advanced Option and setup another connection through that as well.
