      Port forwarding problem.

      Here is the problem I am having, I take this port I wish to forward, enter it, and I enter my internal IP. I then go and and make an inbound exception for the port I had forwarded. I go and check if the port is open and surprise surprise, it's still closed. I am totally stumped on this and any would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks in advance, Lee.

      Re: Port forwarding problem.

      Is the rule actually added to the GUI?

      How are you checking if it is open etc?

      Having the same issue, checked and double checked and can't seem to get these ports open, using the simple portforwarding tool

      Re: Port forwarding problem.

      Have you checked it with the application it is opened for?

      What port are you trying to open and what's it for?
