Windows 7 firewall blocking Openfire service

I have Openfire running as a service with default ports. I cannot connect if the Windows 7 firewall is turned on. Turn it off and everything works fine.

When I run the lightbulb program it detects the openfired.exe program and opens a port for it. However, I suspect it is not detecting the openfire service. I tried to create a new firewall entry for the service but that did not work.

Anyone have any experience with this?

Openfire 3.7.1

Win 7 Professional edition

MS SQL Server express 2012

Ports opened 5222-5223,7777
