SuperProNet Firewall Configuration

There are two sets of instructions depending on whether you are using the built-in Windows firewall or a third-party firewall.

Using Windows Firewall

2. Click Browse and navigate to C:\Program Files\Common Files\SafeNet Sentinel\Sentinel Protection Server\WinNT\spnsrvnt.exe. Another window should appear.
3. Once you have selected spnsrvnt.exe click Open.
4. Finally click OK in the Add a Program window.

Using Third-Party Firewall

Due to the fact that there are so many third-party firewall and network security programs, we can not possibly list specific instructions for each.

However in any third-party firewall you have the option of allowing exceptions to security rules.

You must allow all In-Bound and Out-Bound network traffic on UDP Port 6001.
