Why cant I access SilkCentral Test Manager"s URL from another machine?

ANSWER
----------------------------------
On attempt to connect to SilkCentral Test Manager we recieve the error

"This page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. 
The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings"


but I can access it on the machine where the application server is installed.
The reason for this is that by default Windows enables its Firewall on all PC"s, thus refusing access to the PC from other systems. By getting the user to turn off the Firewall settings from within the Control Panel on the SilkCentral Test Manager"s host machine (See screenshot below) will allow them the access the host machine from other PC"s.
