Hi,
I have LW 11.5 running well with -0 switch (no Hub).
But without -0 I am still struggeling.
Set two rules in the firewall for:
- Hub.exe
- Layout.exe
- lseditor.exe
- lsinterface.exe
- Modeler.exe

First rule:
allow communication via TCP/UDP on any port incoming and outgoing on IP 127.0.0.1
allow communication via TCP/UDP on any port incoming and outgoing on IP 192.168..... (IP of my machine in the network)

It works somehow. But now LW is asking to communicate on 255.255.255.255 and others.
That looks strange to me.

Does anybody have a complete list of what must be opened in the firewall to stop LW asking "let me communicate"?


[EDIT:]
Just noticed that the 255.255.255.255 request also comes up with the -0 switch active.

I allow everything, Layout, Modeller, Hub to access the network.

Also, 255.255.255.255 is your network Subnet broadcast address, I.E. packets set to this address are received by all machines on the LAN
