Flex 6500
SmartSDR 2.0.19
Windows 10 Version 1709 Build 16299.309

I have two win10 machines. A laptop and desktop.  Both are the same version and build.  I cannot login to either one of them anymore with SmartLink. I had Smartlink running on the desktop at the end of last year.  I recently tried to use it on a newly acquired laptop and it does not work.  I try to login and it wont let me.  I know my login is good because I got my Maestro to work using my iPhone as a hot spot at a Hamfest yesterday.  I thought it might be blocked ports on their router but I tried it at home on my guest Wi-Fi and got the same results.  Tried it on my desktop that I know worked in the past and I could not login to that either.  My guess is that something in Win10 broke the SmartLink login or is blocking it.  Does anyone have any ideas what to undo in win10 to get this to work.  I'm not ready to upgrade SmartSDR yet.  It worked fine with the version of SmartSDR I have until windows upgraded.  Yes I am logged in as an admin but that does not seem to matter.
Both my iPhone and iPad login with no issues.

Thanks in advance for your help

PS:  The Maestro performed Flawlessly and got a lot of positive attention.
