Hi JudithLBarton,

 I'm Just wondering In Your Question, Windows Firewall is a protection to A Computer For Malicious Viruses and It Can allow You To Communicate to other applications of Computer, Your Question is how to enable other computers to communicate with my computer through Windows Firewall. Now Base of My research I found A Shortcut Key To simply solve Your Question. First Click "Start"——> Run then type firewall.cpl 

In my Experience We Off Windows Firewall If we Play Online Games and World Of WarCraft (DOTA). Windows Firewall is Different in Your Computer AntiVirus. I'm 100% Sure that you would Communicate To Other Computers either You are in Cafe or In Your Home. When The Windows Firewall Is off, We Get A higher Chances To attack Malicious Viruses, Worms and Trojans.

Turning off the computer’s Windows Firewall, I think, is not a good idea. Doing this only brings your machine to a lot of dangers either software or network-related attacks. But to think that the post above only suggests turning it off during playing of online games, I think it can be considered. But make sure to turn it back on after playing. And another thing, if there’s no problem playing the game with the Firewall on, might as well keep it enabled in the whole course of your online playing.

I think there is a misconception here. You don’t communicate with other computers through the Windows Firewall. This is the part of the operating system that filters which applications to be allowed and disallowed outside access. The Windows Firewall blocks most programs by default to make the system more secure. If you want to allow a program to have outside access and receive incoming and outgoing communications, you can include it in the Exceptions tab of Windows Firewall. To add your program in the Exceptions list, follow these:

  • Click Start, Control Panel, Network and Internet Connections, and finally Windows Firewall.
  • In the Windows Firewall window, select Exceptions tab.
  • To add your program in the list, click Add Program. After that browse and select your program then click OK and you’re done. Just click OK to close the Windows Firewall window.
