Please man some of the PFW solutions will start blocking all traffic or
go into a traffic lockout mode when the machine goes inactive and you
must tell the PFW to allow traffic again when the machine and PFW become
active again. I don't know how many times I have informed users about
this in other NG(s) when they start whining about I have a router but my
machine doesn't have Internet access nor can I communicate with the
router and I ask them do you have a PFW solution on the machine and they
say yes I do.
