      D-Link DSL-2640S router, ports 80 and 443 forwarded through firewall, but not open

      Hi,

      I know this has been answered before, but I've followed all the guides, successfully for all router ports except for 80 and 443.
      Both ports are open in the firewall and being directed to the correct LAN IP, but I cannot reach it externally.

      http://www.yougetsignal.com's port checker reports both as being closed, leading to much head scratching at this end!

      Are these ports blocked by Sky, or is something else up??

      Thanks,
      Chris

      No idea what is causing this, but it seems to erratically work sometimes for a period and then suddenly stop. Very frustrating!

      Sky do not block any ports, do not let amyone tell you any different.

      OK, thanks.

      It must be something weird going on behind the router then!
