Tip #5 On PC if you are getting "Connection Lost or Unavailable" message when you open the Pox Nora launcher this may be a result of your Firewall and Security settings. To add Pox Nora to your firewall exceptions list there are several guides on the Microsoft site depending on your operating system. To edit your Firewall settings: Go to the start menu, and in the search area type MSCONFIG. Now open MSCONFIG and go to the Services tab. Scroll down until you see Windows Firewall. Uncheck the box next to Windows Firewall and click Apply. Pox Nora should now be able to connect to the server now. Note: Disabling your firewall could make your computer vulnerable to outside threats, so to do so will be at your own risk. Thanks to Redashes for providing this trouble shooting tip.
