Windows firewall question

Hi there,

I am working on an application which makes the user's computer act as a server in a local network by binding itself to a random open port. The user gets a popup letting the them know that it has blocked my application or some of its features.

What I am trying to understand is this, when I write a program in Python that does exactly the same thing as the Windows Forms .NET 3.5 application, the firewall has no objections to this.

I run my Python and my .NET application as a standard user (with no admin permissions) and I don't understand what Python is doing that .NET application is restricted from doing.

Any insight in this is greatly appreciated.
