      Port Fowarding [Help pease]

      Whenever I try to port forward, It doesn't work.

      I turn all of my firewalls off.

      I add services into my router and add exceptions in the firewall settings (in the router)

      I test to see if my ports are open (using Portforward.com's port checker) And it says its open.

      I test with https://www.grc.com/ and it says they're all closed / stealthed.

      I use canyouseeme.org and it says they're closed.

      What am I doing wrong?

      Re: Port Fowarding [Help pease]

      What are you opening the ports for? Does the application you have opened ports for work? Ports should only open for the Service assigned to them, so using a port checker they should show closed or preferably stealthed.

      as Isitme mentioned kinda when you open Ports they can show as stealthed on these online Port Checkers, try giving your router a simple restart to accept and enforce these changes.
