Mariia Mykhailova updated REEF-347:
-----------------------------------
    Summary: Configure .NET tests to only listen on 127.0.0.1  (was: Configure tests to only
listen on 127.0.0.1)

> Configure .NET tests to only listen on 127.0.0.1

>                 Key: REEF-347
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/REEF-347
>             Project: REEF
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: REEF.NET Evaluator
>            Reporter: Markus Weimer
>            Priority: Minor
>
> When running the REEF.NET tests, the Windows firewall kicks in several times asking for
{{Evaluator.exe}} to have permission to open a port. These popups are part of the *application*
firewall of Windows: Whenever an unknown app wants to open a port, Windows asks for the users
permission.
> We don't see these for the JVM tests, as we probably all have given the {{java.exe}}
that permission a long time ago, opening a gaping whole in our safety net from java-based
malware :-)
> We can't do the same for the {{Evaluator.exe}}, as we create a new one on every build,
and the Windows firewall is to distinguish them as new.
> According to [this thread on stackoverflow|http://stackoverflow.com/questions/26626258/disable-windows-firewall-popup-for-automated-tests],
we can however get a much cleaner solution: As long as we configure all our processes to listen
on {{127.0.0.1}} only, the firewall won't be active. 
> The recent addition of the {{PortProvider}} and {{LocalAddressProvider}} classes should
make that feasible.
