      Need help opening a port on my router

      Here are the screenshots of my service and firewall rule page, can you see anything wrong with it?

      The port I am trying to open is 3174.



      Is it because I need to put something in the WAN section?


      EDIT: Would like to point out that when i do a test at http://canyouseeme.org/ it says "Connection Refused", but now that I have just download PFPortChecker from portforward.com and it says the Port is open for both TCP and UDP.

      Slightly confused, is it open or not lol.

      I am not an expert on opening ports, but opposite the Service Definition should you not put the name of the service you are allowing eg 'uTorrent' rather than the port number?

      I am not sure why one should be showing it open and the other closed, but it could be because you are checking from within your network with one and from the internet with the other. Try using https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 to check if the port is open from the internet side.
