AGWPE and Firewalls

Most computer users now have either a firewall program -- such as Windows' Firewall  or ZoneAlarm - and/or a firewall within their network router. These may restrict TCP/IP access to and from AGWPE and thus block other programs trying to use AGWPE.

If you have problems with a program connecting to AGWPE, test the firewall by temporarily turning it off. If your application program can now connect to AGWPE, then when you restart the firewall you will need to configure the firewall to permit AGWPE and your application to talk to one another. Please consult your firewall program's HELP for information about how to do this.

The important TCP ports for AGWPE are:

  •  8000 = the default port for connecting applications to AGWPE
  •    80 = if you want to try remote browser control of AGWPE

Of course, if you change the default port in AGWPE to something other than 8000, you may need to change your firewall settings, too.

If you are trying to access an instance of AGWPE running on another computer on the network, please see the AGWPE on a Network page on this website for additional information about IP addresssing.
