Ive been trying to download the student version of Inventor 2013 and a communication error shows up.  I've turned off the firewall which was recommended in the message and it still wont download. Any recommendations would be appreciated. 

 

Thanks

Communication error still appears after applying the new rule.  Instructions are pretty vague on how to set it up through the wizard so I'm not sure if I did it write.  Is there a better source on how to go about opening the port to inventor?

That came directly from the Microsoft site so it's likely the best source. But did you try the other steps? Changing your download method, changing browsers, disarming firewalls/antivirus, clearing your cookies and cache, disabling your UAC, etc.?
