Duplicate emby entries in Windows Firewall Allowed Apps

Recommended Posts

After installing emby, my emby client app would not connect to the server and after poking around I noticed that several emby entries in the "allowed apps" of the Windows firewall were duplicated. After removing the duplicated entries my client app was able to connect to the server. 

Today after rebooting my home server, again my emby client app could not connect to the emby server. And again there were duplicates emby entries in the firewall. I removed them and the client app could then connect. As a test, I went to the taskbar tray and close the emby server and manually restarted it: duplicate entries in the firewall were found and the client could not connect to the server. 

There seems to be a bug with the emby server adding entires to the Windows firewall each time it is restarted.

Hi, it doesn't add them on restart, only on first installation as well as after port setting changes in the server network screen.

What you're seeing is probably the automatic windows behavior of prompting for authorization when emby server tries to make network requests.
