Thanks. I have been having problems still with the connection. I have triple checked the firewall rules on both the system and the network, and even tried turning the firewall completely off. I ran a network capture and I can see the GUI console and the server talking, but then after 1-2 seconds the server sends a reset packet and they start over. The server is running on an Azure VM with a public IP address running EEC version 126.96.36.1993. I also cannot get any Emsisoft A/M clients to connect to the server to receive configuration, which may be related (the ports are all open for that as well).
