Hi Leif,

Yes Graetan has a very good procedure and write up.
I hope to build upon and extend it in regard of this
 firewall issue.

There is nothing for you to do about the firewall.
It is the user,  installing / using the program that
should be aware of the situation.

Having the wirewall in operation and I think most
Windows XP/Vista/Windows& users will or
do, requires to rate or assign if you will,  Linrad as
"friendly or acceptable".on the MAP65 computer.

If properly done I do not think that the protection
provided by the firewall takes much resources or
is slowing things down.

If this is not done, the firewall prevents the MAP65
computer to accept data from Linrad, regardless
the network setup.

I do not understand why in case of a stand alone
installation of Linrad, the firewall exception is asked
for, ( a yes answer does the trick ) while in the
case of MAP65 I-Q where Linrad is loaded with
MAP65 i-Q  MAP65 goes to the test, and if approved
the progam is in the exception list while Linrad is being
asked for approval, and if approved by the user, it is
NOT placed in the exception list!

So bottom line is, users should be aware of this odd
behaviour, That is really all.

I like perhaps to suggest you to add a green indicator
somewhere in the program, may be at the lttle
freq/attenuation window and even only present when
Linrad is in network mode. The indicator would be on
when Linrad is streaming data ( after the "T" keystroke
and the "W" save Key )
