Solved: Ignition key authorization server connection problem, Windows XP

Greetings! I post the following for any other lost soul who had my problem and might search the forums for help. I found the solution here, but it took a bit more digging than I would have liked.

I'm working on XP Pro. I just got Record as an update to Reason 4, and the ignition key refused to connect to Propellerheads's authorization server. Nor would the "Internet Authorization" function connect. The authorization insisted the problem was with my internet connection, but I had been looking at TONS of porn just moments before, so I knew that wasn't the case!

It was solved this way:

One must turn on a Windows service called "Workstation" and turn off the firewall.

1. Go to Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services and reveal the properties of said service.

2. Set the service to "Automatic".

3. Restart computer

4. Go to Control Panel/Security Center/Windows Firewall

5. Turn it off!

6. Take a swing at authorization. Worked for me.

And I'm happy to be in business, because I'm really digging Record.
