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.
Allow Notezilla through Windows Firewall
Make sure to first configure your PC firewall to allow running of Notezilla. The firewall on the PC might sometimes not allow to send or receive notes.
You can search for firewall in Windows search box and you will see “Allow an app through Windows Firewall”. Choose this option and enable Notezilla. If Notezilla is not listed, then click on ‘Allow another app’ and add Notezilla.
If you are using any other Firewall tool (usually included with Anti-Virus software) then you will have to configure that firewall.
Make sure you do this on both sending and receiving computer.
You can refer to the following articles for further information:

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
