nFront Password Filter Client RPC Error


The Windows 2008/2012/2016 firewall that does not allow the nFront Password Filter Client to connect on port 1333 to retrieve the list of password rules. The Windows 7/8/10 client will display a message that says "Retreiving Password Criteria..." and it will stay there forever. This problem is solved by adding a rule to the Windows firewall.
