What's a firewall

You probably have a "firewall" on you computer. In this context we are talking about some software on your PC that controls what access applications have to the network/internet. This is to stop rogue applications sending your keystrokes to hackers and that sort of thing.

What Nuno does

Nuno communicates across a network in two ways.

TCP - this is to get charts and licence updates from our services on the internet.

UDP - this is to receive GPS and AIS signals sent over your local network if you use a box like the Digital Yacht WLN20 (others available) to spread this information across a WiFi network.

Other firewalls and Windows Firewall on other versions of windows might look slightly different.
