In some cases, EasyWorship may be blocked from accessing the internet, or you may find that you cannot use the MIDI, NDI or Remote functions in EasyWorship. This can be caused by the Windows Firewall blocking EasyWorship from accessing the network.
When EasyWorship is opened for the first time, Windows Firewall will ask you to allow the program to access the network. If this is not set properly when applying the settings it can cause the firewall to block EasyWorship from accessing the network. This setting can also become corrupted, so resetting the setting can resolve a problem like this.
Follow the steps below to remove EasyWorship from the firewall exceptions list and add it back.
- Close EasyWorship.
