Sending sticky notes over network using Notezilla or Quick Notes Plus is very easy.
But your firewall settings and other network configuration can make it appear as a very difficult task.
You may not be able to send and receive sticky notes. Or you may be able to send but not receive sticky notes.
Here are most common causes of such problems:
- Firewall is blocking the program. Make sure that you have configure your firewall program to allow Notezilla/QNP to communicate over network. If you are using Windows Firewall then the following articles might help:
Windows 7: Allow a program to communicate through Windows Firewall
Windows XP: Using Windows Firewall
Windows Vista: Allow a program to communicate through Windows Firewall
Remember: You must configure the firewalls on all computers that need to send and receive sticky notes.
- If you are using Notezilla, you must make sure that the ‘Accept Notes Over Network’ option is enabled on all the computers. To access this option, right click on Notezilla’s icon in the Windows taskbar and choose ‘Notezilla Browser’ from the menu. In Notezilla Browser, click on the Advanced menu and enable ‘Accept Notes Over Network’.
- Your computer may be running more than one firewall programs. If you are using a third-party firewall program, you must make sure that the default Windows Firewall is disabled. You must have only one firewall program running. If you wish to run multiple firewall programs then you must make sure that you have allowed Notezilla/QNP in all firewalls
