JDownloader needs to be able to listen on several ports. One of them is picked randomly each session (which is why you keep getting the question). JDownloader does not need a server opening in the firewall (for listening to messages from the internet), it needs to be allowed to listen on LOCALHOST ( on any port.

You may have to tell the firewall not to accept incoming connections for java, javaw, and jdownloader. Creating the exclusion should isolate JD to just local connections.

Remember, you can turn off all firewall services from your computer. You only have to protect your computer from the internet, unless you have a virus. If you have a router with a built in firewall, then just disable the software firewall.
