Unblock Docker for Windows Firewall Issues with Host Volumes

We're not yet where stuff runs out of the box. This is a case in point. I spent all day on this issue, and it's basically Norton Firewall blocking access to shared volumes (ie., shared files) between my Windows system and a Docker container. I followed the instructions here (didn't need to execute the PowerShell command at the end) and now it seems to work, at lease with kitematics hello-world-ngnix. Source for this container isn't available, so I'm still trying to find a sample working Dockerfile or compose to make volume sharing work. See also this thread.
