Firewall rules, manual installation

The DICOM viewer is capable of communicating with DICOM servers, PACS, other DICOM viewers or any DICOM SCP / SCU software. During installation, Windows firewall rules are created automatically to allow the different applications of the DICOM viewer to communicate freely, receiving and sending data.
If you have different or additional security software installed, it could be possible that you have a different or additional firewall. Check the documentation how to allow communication of the DICOM viewer through your firewall(s).

The following applications should be added to firewall rules: 'DICOMViewer.exe', 'DICOMComms.exe', 'Overview.exe', 'Image.exe', 'Nkag20.exe' (32-bit), 'Nkag6420.exe' (64-bit). You'll find them in the installation folder.

Below you'll find a description of how to create firewall rules manually in Windows 7. The Windows Defender Firewall in Windows 10 and 11 works similarly.

The newly added rules should look like this:
