Windows Firewall Issue


Many times my customers write me after they have purchased program. Common reason is that some computers can send and receive note and some computer(s) can only send or only receive note. I always reply to my customers and write them to make sure that Windows Firewall settings are correct, meaning that ShixxNOTE program have opened default port 2000 for communication. So you can open default port 2000 or gave permission to ShixxNOTE program in Windows Firewall settings. This is always happening because when customer install program on a computer and then start program for the first time, Windows Firewall dialog prompts and they doesn't know what to click on it.

So now I will put Windows Firewall images and what customer or simple 30-days trial user must click when program is installed and started first time on the computer. If you install program on Windows XP then you will get this dialog where you must click on the Unblock button like on an image below.

If you are installing ShixxNOTE on Windows 7 or Windows 10 you will get again Windows Firewall dialog where you must click on Allow Access button like on an image below.

If you do this at the program first start up you will have no problems later with sending or receiving notes.

Kind regards,

Make ShixxNOTE icon to appear on the TaskBar

If you have Windows 10 with latest update (I stopped counting how many times I had to update my OS) installed on your computer, than I would like to show you how to make ShixxNOTE icon visible in your taskbar.

Microsoft release update and than you have to uninstall VPN client just to get network That is my example. So now I am scared when I see that new Update is available 🙂 But lets just put ShixxNOTE icon always visible.

First you need to right mouse click on taskbar and select Taskbar settings iIconTaskbar_2018-01-08_00tem from menu. That item has this image beside.
After that you will get this image where you have to click on “Select which icons appear on the taskbar”.

Then you only need to set ShixxNOTE icon to On. After that and after every next Windows 10 start up you will see ShixxNOTE icon in the corner 🙂

Kind regards,
