Windows firewall block Remote Desktop connection - solved

As posted in "Basic setup for Microsoft Remote Desktop and Remote Desktop Client for Android". I can connect Remote Desktop Client on Android to my Windows 8.1 Pro with basic setup. But it fail to connect recently!

It's found that Windows firewall block the remote desktop connection. To fix it:

- Search setting of "firewall" in windows Search, select "Allow an app through Windows Firewall".

- It can be noticed that Public of Remote Desktop app is unchecked.

- To enable Remote Desktop for public, click on the "Change Settings" button, and click to check it. Then OK.

- Remote Desktop Client app on Android work now.
