Summary
SoftLINK allows instructors to remotely connect to trainee devices.  These connections require communication over certain ports.   If the instructor’s device is unable to connect to trainee devices after an installation, check to see if any endpoint security, antivirus, or network filtering is present on your devices or network.  If they are, open up the appropriate ports as described below.
