Firewall warning message.

  1936 08:52 04 Feb 2008

I find a warning when I open up my computer with the words as follows asking me if I wish to allow or deny. I have deleted the numerals following the local and remote addresses.

Should I allow or deny? What does the message mean?

Application: SQL Server Windows NT
Full path: C:\Program Files\Pinnacle\MediaServer\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$PINNACLESYS\Binn\sqlservr.exe
Local address:
Remote address:
Connection: TCP connection
Direction: In

Looks as though it is part of Microsoft. So should be Ok to allow it.But wait till someone else can here

Yes put a hold on that until we find out more about it.

If you have Studio9 or similar, from Pinnacle, among your programs - (I also have Studio9), this is safe to allow.

Yes put a hold on that.Wait until someone can give you the correct information.I am not to sure about it now.

In this instance it is to do with Pinnacles DataBase. It is not just confined to Pinnacle, but covers many other DTB configurations, and for Apple as well as Windows.

Thanks for coming back with that information.I was a bit worried in case I was advising wrongly.

It is always best to be cautious, but in this instance all is ok - perfectly safe to allow.
Have a look through some of these you will see what I mean.

Many thanks for all the advice. The new AVG Firewall and Virus check I have started to use is rather protective and every time that I open an application from Pinnacle Studio to Nero a message comes up which asks permision to make contact.
I feel instintively inclined to say NO. Am I right or am I biting of my nose to spite my face?

It should not make any difference whether you choose Yes or No as long as you check the box which says something like, Remember this setting. I don't use that particular firewall, so I am not sure of the wording, but feel that it should give you that option.

It would not do any harm in any case to give a Yes!
