Windows 7 Firewall: Add ESP8266 Access Point to trusted networks, how?
I made an Access Point (Ad Hoc) device with an ESP2866 that Windows needs to connect to (Wireless, WiFi). I tried several other devices to do this and works great, however, Windows won't do it.
Figured out it has something to do the Firewall.
- When I turn the firewall off, it connects without any problem.
- When connected and turn the firewall on again, it works still ok.
- However, when I disconnect and reconnect again, the same problem occur.
What can I do to make it work without this problem? Why Windows Firewall blocks the connection of this network by default? Never experience this behaviour before.
Some info of the ESP device:
- Own network, no internet access - Provides DHCP and DNS - Have a HTTP-Server started on port 80
Device starting: MorsTec - Clock Sound Dock CSD181 Version: v2018.1 Setup as Access Point ADHOC connection IP address: 192.168.10.10 DNS server started at port 53 as "mtcsd" TCP server started at port 80
