When prompted, select 'ALLOW'.

How Do I Allow Access Through The Firewall?
If your Audio Pod starts, but attempts to drop books are unsuccessful, you may be having problems getting through your firewall. The approach recommended by Microsoft is to grant Firewall exceptions for Audio Pod utilities, using the following steps.

  1. To manually configure a program-based exception, start the Windows Firewall use either

            Control Panel -> Windows Firewall
            Control Panel -> Security Center -> Windows Firewall

  2. Click the Exceptions tab.
  3. Click Add Program button.
  4. Use the browse option to add the Audio Pod Player. The default installed location is:

            C:\Program Files\Audiopod\Audiopod\AudioPod03.exe

  5. Click OK to save changes to the exception.
  6. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for:

            C:\Program Files\Audiopod\Audiopod\PortaPod Loader.exe

How Do I Make the Audio Pod Library a Trusted Site
If you are using Internet Explorer as your web browser, you may need to tell the browser that the Audio Pod Library is a 'Trusted Site'. This is a common problem when using Vista and Windows 7. With your browser open, from the tool bar select:
  1. Tools -> Internet Options
  2. On the 'Security' tab, select the 'Trusted Sites' option and press the 'Sites' button. Enter the web address


    in the website text entry box.
  3. Uncheck the checkbox that requires this site to use server verification (https:).
  4. Press the 'Add' button. The Audio Pod Library address should appear in the websites list.
  5. Close the open dialog boxes. You may need to restart your browser to make the changes effective.
