by saying "open ports" in a router or PC or other Network System what we mean basically? what is opposite terminology, "closed ports"?-used or unused-sensitive-vulnerable or non vulnerable to attacks-exploited easily and when so may attacked and have much bad/serious consequences/results
I have been trying to host games for some time now with no luck. I believe it is because i cannot open the proper ports. I own a Linksys BFSR41 Ver. 4 router. I have been trying to open ports, testing them on a port checker website and they are always listed as closed. I have followed the guide on portforward.com perfectly with no luck.I have disabled Block Anonymous Internet Requests.I have disabled my Windows firewall, and AVS. Still cannot open ports.I have also updated to the latest firmware. I am using Win-7 x64.
I am considered as a novice when it comes to networking, modems/routers etc.I have a Belkin Modem/Router, I need ports TCP 80, 2300 and UDP 2310 I think to be forwarded so I can play a certain game online (Age of Empires 3). I have tried DMZ mode for my pc and I can play the game online but only with DMZ enabled. Just some extra info.Belkin Modem/Router model : F5D7634-4A-H v2 (on the device)F5D7634-4-H v2 (01) (on the online settings (192.168.2.1))It has the latest firmware as I have clicked on the firmware update and it says "There is no new firmware update available for this Router!"
I have been having trouble forwarding ports for different softwares and servers. I just upgraded my internet and my ISP sent me a new modem/router all in one. I am using a wired setup to my desktop. The router I am using is Sagem FAST 1704.
My ISP told me that they only give support for game consoles, the dumbest thing I ever heard since I don't pay for their internet so I can play games. Cannot forward a simple port. Port 100 in specific.
When I forward ports, I am certain that I'm typing in the right Ip address digit because I checked ipconfig. Then I check the 'canyouseeme' website and it tells me that the port is not open on my ip address. I have tried other means of checking to see if the port is open but they all tell me the port is closed. Once in awhile the port will be open but most of the time it isn't.
I plug in my older modems and it doesn't make a difference when I re-set up the port forwarding to the new IP so I guess it isn't a problem with the modem or router. I changed all my ethernet and phone cords and filters as well. My isp told me that they do not block ports.
My isp is Windstream. I cannot set up a static IP in network connections because when I do the internet doesn't work at all even if I set the exact same settings that are currently set. This happens with both modems I have. I do not use two devices at one time just the modem or the modem/router, there are no other computers connected and filters are on all phones/satellites. I am using Windows XP, not sure what other info you will need.
My isp keeps telling me they do not support setting up vpn's. I do not need support for that I just want to open a port. lol the next thing they told me is, you guessed it, "We do not support setting up VPN please contact your work IT........" which doesn't exist. I spoke to three of them and they all said the same thing, except one told me they were going to open ALL ports for me. That didn't happen.
I just want to open up a few ports for Age of Empires 3 but no matter what I do the ports still stay closed.I have a Belkin F6D4630-4 v2 modem/router (firmware updated to 2.00.25) and I use https:[url].... to check my ports.
I've forwarded the ports 2300-2310 in my router (both TCP and UDP) using the 'virtual servers' thing.
I've disabled windows firewall.
I've disabled my AVG antivirus.
I've disabled and enabled this thing to see if it would make a difference: "UPNP Enabling:
Allows you to turn the UPNP feature of the Router on or off. If you use applications that support UPnP, enabling UPnP will allow these applications to automatically configure the router." When I probe the ports from 2280 to 2330 using the Gibson research website, the ports I forwarded (2300-2310) say 'closed' and the others say 'stealth'. Why do they say CLOSED and not OPEN? There shouldn't be anything blocking those ports.
When I probe the ports from 2280 to 2330 with windows firewall ON, all of them say 'stealth', even though I've added those ports to the windows firewall exceptions.I just want those ports to say "OPEN" so I can join all games on Age of Empires 3 instead of coming up with the message "Failed to join game".
The last few weeks I've been having problems with my 360 Slim. Sometimes it boots up just fine, other times it wont connect to XBL at all. Some days I have a open NAT, other days I have a moderate NAT.
I have followed the steps on the portforward website. I make a static IP and all that good stuff. I open the ports, using the IP address the Portforward static IP program gives me. After that...My computer stops working. It fails to connect me to any websites at all.I'm running a Linksys ea3500 router.
I am using remote management to attempt to open port 8889 on my Linksys WRT54G router. I have successfully opened ports 22 and 80 with no problem. Additionally, I can close and reopen these ports without having to physically reset the router. However, if I try to open any other port (I have tried various ports: 23, 100, 8888, 8889, and several others) this port will not open. The ISP this router is connected to is Comcast and according to this site URL port 8889 isn't among the ports that Comcast blocks. I have tried everything I can think of to resolve this issue (short of manually resetting the router or restoring the default settings).
I am running a Linksys Wireless G 2.4 GHz Broadband Router Model WRT54G. I am unable to open any ports. I upgraded to the latest firmware yesterday but still am unable to open any ports. I even turned off my Symantec Internet Security Suite Firewall but still am unable to open any ports.
im moving over to VDSL.But now i cant open any ports on the E4200 no mather what i do.It worked with the previous modem, but now i cant open anything. all the ports seems to be closes, 80, 21 etc, and the ports i manually forrward.The previous modem was a ZyXEL P-2602HWT-F3, and the new one is a ZyXEL P-2812HNU-F3.If i connect directly into the ZyXEL P-2812HNU-F3, every ports seems to be open, port 80 is open, port 21 is open, but not on the E4200, and yes, i have tried open the FTP ports.I have tried the 30/30/30 reset on the E4200.
How do I go about opening specific ports on an E4200?I'm having disconnect issues with a particular game, and the Customer Service drone thinks the ports required for the game aren't open. Nevermind the fact that it's worked fine for 6 months now, and the problem only started a few days ago.I figured I'd humor the idiot and open the ports, but all I can find is information on forwarding, not making sure the ports are open
I need to open four ports and have no idea how. My web host thought that my ISP was blocking them; the ISP says they are not and that it is teh router. I don't have pjone support anymore (WRT54G is old) so could not be walked through it by a tech support person.
I have been using Linksys routers for quite some time now, and recently made a big upgrade from the WRT54G to the E3000. I am familiar with the 192.168.1.1 interface and its functionality. However, I recently noticed a problem: when I set a port to forward traffic to any IP address on my network and then check whether or not it is actually open (url...), I am told that the port is still closed. More interestingly still, the first port that I forwarded when I first got the router is listed as open, but the other half dozen or so are still considered closed. I have been trying to set up a file transfer protocol (FTP) server, but can't even get traffic to forward from port 21! I even tried using the pre-configured FTP drop down on the Applications & Gaming tab, but to no avail. Has anyone had similar issues, or perhaps an idea as to why only one port is forwarded when I have followed the same steps that I have been using for years?
I tried to get in touch with Technical Support about this issue, but was told that I needed to purchase a $30 subscription in order to qualify for assistance. I don't think that I should have to pay $30 to know why the same steps work with some ports but not with others.
Any know how to close these open ports on my Cisco 7606 router? Any know what these TCP ports are used for? : 49 - Not sure what this one is other than what IANA reports about TCP port 49 4510 4509 2222 : I'm sure I could add an ACL to block communications to my router based on this ports but would rather figure out how to close 'em so this already overloaded router doesn't have additional processing.
open specific ports on 1941w Integrated Services Router.This specific router is a wireless VPN router that has a wired module and a wireless module and VPN so I'm getting 3 subnets on my network - 192.168.1.. for the wired connections, 10.100.1.... for wireless LAN connections and 10.100.2... for VPN remote connections.I know that by default all connected computers can access my Linux server data through telnet so the telnet port is open by default, the problem is that I have some other software licensing system on my Linux box that needs to be accessed through port 27000 and most of my users are using wireless connections and can't access that license because post 27000 is closed.what is the comand to open this post or any other port that I need to be open on the wired module, wireless module and VPN or at least poit me to somewhere where I can find all the commands that I can use for this router?
A while ago internet access was slowed right down for an hour or so. I have a phone line that comes into the house and then into gateway (10.0.0.2) then ethernet from that to linksys wifi router (192.168.1.1). So I did the following ping and repeated what you see below a few times to see that these results were broadly consistent, which was the case. One other person is connected to linksys via ethernet cord and they might have been on at the time. Questions are.... are these results consistent with contention caused by other user on the linksys? and why can I ping gateway but not the router? That makes no sense to me! I am not annoyed with the other person if he is hogging the network...I like him. I just wonder whats going on. When the internet works results from pinging are all as one would expect

My house is wired with Ethernet to just about every room with several connections in some rooms and its come time to expand our network. Right now we have a wireless router connected by Ethernet to a standard Ethernet router and we are experiencing problems with our network printers. While i'm not sure if it will solve our printing problems i am looking to consolidate both my wireless router and my standard Ethernet router into one single router.
I have a WRT54G2 router (V1) with the most recent firmware that serves as the gateway between my Internet connection and my home network. Over the past few months, I've noticed that the router seems to consistently become unusable due to high latency when it runs for any period of time. The internet connection is working, but the latency is sometimes as high as 2000ms to ping Google or to run a test from Speedtest.net. When a computer is directly plugged into the cable modem provided by my ISP, the problems resolve.
Restarting the router proivdes a resolution of the problem, but over time the latency issues increase again until it needs to be restarted. Right now, I have it on a mechanical (plug) timer that restarts it every morning around 4AM, but this still doesn't seem to fix the overall issue; I've had to restart the router manually twice today. Before restart, my ping will be over 1000ms; afterward, it will drop back to 20-60ms.Note that the download and upload speeds don't seem to be affected by this, just the latency itself.
The problem appears on both wireless and wired connections.I'm not sure if this is a sign that our router is failing (it was purchased in 2009, so as far as consumer-grade solutions go, it's lasted a pretty decent span), or if there's some misconfiguration on my end, or if something with my ISP is making my router flip out. What can/should I do to fix this issue (please note that flashing the router with DD-WRT is not an option, this version generally sees decreased performance when DD-WRT is installed).EDITED TO ADD: I have ruled out internal traffic causing the problem (I reviewed the log files for the router and tried to identify any unknown stuff, but it seems fine). I can't quite figure out exactly what causes the router to develop the issue, but once it does, I've noticed the following:
Extremely high latency (1000ms+) for pings from any computer inside the network to an outside destination?The router itself cannot ping or traceroute once it has started developing these high latency issues - if you use the router's PING feature, it returns all timeouts.It does not seem to correlate with any specific type of traffic.
How can I allow all ports to be open? I don't really want my 1811 to block any traffic. I tried the command access-list 1 permit any which allows me to surf the internet, but when I check my web server, and port 3389 (Remote desktop) on yougetsignal.com it says those ports are blocked.
I have a bandwidth-intensive video conferencing device connected to a router. I have forwarded all the necessary ports to the device (and I have even tried DMZ) but the device is unable to connect to some servers due to "NAT issues". The device uses lots of ports simultaneously to connect and I am wondering maybe possibly the router can not handle the number of open ports. The ISP only blocks port 25 which the device does not use. Could it be that the ISP limits the number of ports that are in use? Or maybe the ISP limits the amount of bandwidth that can pass through certain ports?
I have Sky Fibre Optic Broadband, with a router supplied by Sky, (You can't use any other router, as username/password for internet is already put into router & they will not give you details when you phone them). The router they supply has only four Ethernet ports on. One is used by Sky to give you Fibre Broadband, thus leaving you with three.I have five devices that must use Ethernet, as they do not have wireless.How do I get more Ethernet ports available to use, without losing the Sky router, as Sky will NOT let you use any other router.
