      Need some help from DG834GT experts please

      Only recently got this router and first off setup port forwarding and it worked ok, but the next day I do a check using WhatsMyIP.org : Port Scanners/Sniffers and it reports that ports are closed.

      I have tried both enabling DMZ on my PC with a static IP and also disabling the firewall completley and still the ports are blocked!

      I also think this is stopping me connecting to a VPN service as well, as I cannot even open port 1723.

      Any ideas at all as I am lost?

      Thanks

      Chris

      I think the port will only appear open when the application you have forwarded it to is active. That is the point of opening it for a particular service, to anything else it appears closed.

      You will find instructions on setting up VPN on your router in this tutorial-
      Sky User - The unofficial support forum for everything Sky! Instructions for setting up VPN rules on the Sky Router Netgear DG834G

      Hope this helps.
