The question may sound obvious, but I cannot connect to open TCP port on Windows 10 Home on my home network.
My devices: PC1 - Windows 10 Home (with Ubuntu 14 installed as a second OS) PC2 - Windows 8.1
To test connectivity, I do the following: - run "python -m SimpleHTTPServer" on PC1 (this opens local HTTP server on port 8000 to browse filesystem) - open http://[PC1 ip]:8000/ on PC1 - works as expected. - connect PC2 to the same local WiFi network. - open http://[PC2 ip]:8000/ on PC2 - connection timeout.
I have tried different things to troubleshoot: - added wifi network to "private" on both PC1 and PC2 - turned off the firewall on both PC1 and PC2 - turned on the firewall on PC1 with the rule "allow inbound connections on port 8000" - turned off Windows Defender on both PC1 and PC2 - disabled (and then uninstalled) antivirus on PC1
PING does not work in either direction, too. From PC2, Wireshark shows SYN attempts to PC1 with no response. Though I see ARP packets go here and there and IP address resolves to MAC correctly.
If I run Ubuntu on PC1, everything works perfectly. I wonder if there any kind of limitation on "Home" edition of Windows that disallows inbound TCP connects?
