          Inbound Rules

Profile can be: Any, Domain, Private, Public, NotApplicable

New-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "REVisionEffects Server" -Program "C:\Program Files (x86)\REVisionEffects\bin\rvlserver.exe" -Direction Inbound -Protocol TCP -LocalPort 9412 -Action Allow
New-NetFirewallRule -DisplayName "REVisionEffects Server" -Program "C:\Program Files (x86)\REVisionEffects\bin\rvlserver.exe" -Direction Inbound -Protocol UDP -LocalPort 9412 -Action Allow

Allow ping

Allow those rules

If the machine is not in a domain, the private,public part of the rule defaults to “Local subnet”… Great to work with VLANs…

NOTE to myself incase it happens again
open in windows firewall
File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)
Core Networking Diagnostics - ICMP Echo Request (ICMPv4-In)
the latter changed in the windows update 17 Sept 2020 - Yeah Microsoft !!!!
