Disabling the Windows Firewall
With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s get started –
The first step here is to open the Windows Firewall Settings. To do this, tap on the Windows key on your keyboard, and search for Windows Defender Firewall.
Now, from the Control Panel Home, search for ‘Turn Windows Defender On or Off’. Click on it and you will now get the Firewall Toggle settings.
Under the Settings, check the circle next to the option ‘Turn Off Windows Firewall’.
When you’re finished, click the OK button. Again, if you are doing this, be very careful. This tutorial is a way to understand how this is done. We would not recommend you turn off your Firewall.
