Simple python webserver blocked on Windows 10

I'm running a simple python webserver exactly as per this page except on Windows 10. The localhost seems to be blocked when I start the service. I authorised the python.exe and pycharm applications when the Windows firewall asked me. web.application creates a server on http://0.0.0.0:8080. Is there some added security in Win 10 that I have to remove to make this work?

Based on Pedro's comment, it worked after restricting localhost to 127.0.0.1 done by adding the IP address as the first script parameter. i.e. .\webservice.py 127.0.0.1
