  4. Click Advanced Settings on the left side.
  5. Click Inbound Rules.
  6. Click New Rule…
  7. Select Port and click Next.

These adjustments only have to be made to the main Insight computer.

Solution 3 – ADS.ini Configuration #

  1. Click on the Windows or Start button and type “CMD”
  2. Open either the CMD or Command Prompt option that shows up.
  3. A black window will open, type in ipconfig, hit Enter and look for the IPv4 Address. (Note: The IP can be different than what is shown below). If you have 2 IPv4 addresses you can try these steps with both and test.
  4. Write the IP(s) down.
  5. Go back to the Start or Windows button and type C:\Insight and hit Enter.
  6. Find the ADS file in the folder that opens and open it in Notepad. Change the IP where it says “LAN_IP=” to the IP you wrote down.
  7. Click File and Save. Then close the Notepad.
  8. Go to the Windows or Start button and type Services and click on the Services app.
  9. Find and restart the Advantage Database Server
  10. Start Insight on the main computer first, then the workstation.
