Q: router not passing port scan after opening port

so i opened my port 25565 (or so i thought) went to test to see if its open on multiple sites and....all of them say its closed.

Preferred Solution: router not passing port scan after opening port

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: router not passing port scan after opening port

Start the application you opened the port for and then test the port, it should report it as opened.

A:router not passing port scan after opening port

Have you tried a different port to see if that port is being blocked by your ISP?

I also see that your parsing TCP to UDP, probably doesn't make a difference to the port being open or closed but it might be better to set them both the same or set to Any.

Another problem you may encounter is your IP may change, most ISP's like to change your IP every so often so you may have to set up a DDNS with a hostname in order to access the services you want remotely.

I run a web server from my laptop, and my IP address (location) gets updated via DynDNS.org servers.

My notebook is always behind a NAT-configured LAN, and I have configured the router firewall to pass port 80 service requests to my IP (usually 192.168.x.2, where x is maybe 0 or 1 or whatever...I use NetSetMan for location based setting). Note: the DHCP server is configured to stay away from static addresses in the private LAN.

Most routers have their own port 80 service, the configuration interface, accessible by hosts inside the LAN.

I don't have a problem with port 80 service requests coming from the WAN getting passed to 192.168.x.2 host running the web server.

BUT, users in the 192.168.x subnet requesting service from within the LAN do NOT get delivered the web page from host 192.168.x.2, but instead the router's configuration interface, if they use the host NAME. Of course, if they use the host IP address, they get the content.

What is happening of course is that if anyone uses "http://mywebserverhostname.com/", it goes to DynDNS.org where the IP is resolved to the address a.b.c.d, the WAN IP address of the router I am currently connected to. So the http client bundles the packet to the destination a.b.c.d:80.

The users INSIDE the LAN get the router configuration interface web page when they type in a.b.c.d:80, but not users OUTSIDE the LAN (in that WAN).

What's the solution?

A:Passing Port 80 Service Request Through Router From WAN To LAN

Any chance this is a Belkin router? I had the same problem with my Belkin N450 Gigabit, not being able to use my DynDNS name, only the ip address (192.168.....). The Belkin died a few days ago when our power blipped two or three times in a row (I did not have the router on a battery backed up UPS plug, do now).

I replaced it with a Netgear 450 Gigabit router and the problem is gone. I can now connect using the DynDNS name (and Mooo.com name) again. So, bottom line is, it's probably your router causing the problem.

I went round and round with Belkin on this for over a month and finally just gave up. Made it difficult to test changes to the web server.

I'm trying to open a port in my router and I can't seem to get it. I also have two of my same computer name in my Firewall settings. Whenever I try to Add a new definition to what I think is the right computer name it says an unknown error has occurred so I enabled DMZ for that computer name. Then for the other computer name which I believe doesn't do anything I added a definition for the port I want to open.

Whenever I check my port on any website that allows it it says it's closed.

Is there a way to reset everything so there is absolutely no computers on my firewall settings? I think the problem is that someone my computer got duplicated and the one that needs to have the definition added is getting an unknown error...

I have been using an DSL Siemens speedstream 6520 router at home. I usually carry out some R&D by placing servers behind the router. I access the services on each of the servers from the ouside using port forwarding and it has been working fine for http, ftp, RDP, any user defined ports etc but in the case of port 25 SMTP its not working at all. I have checked the port on the local lan and I am able to telnet to that server but from the outside only on this port 25 I am not able to telnet. But If i were to change the SMTP port number from 25 to any other port like 24 or 26, I am able to telnet from the outide. Is there any way i can make SMTP port 25 to work and access the same from the outside.


A:SpeedStream 6520 DSL Router - Port forwarding for port 25

Is it possible that port 25 has been blocked by your ISP? This is a pretty common thing for ISP's to do as a SPAM prevention measure.

As you can see, there are quite a few ISP's blocking port 25 on this list.

I have a P1 GEN2 OLED. While the internet is flooded with complaints of the OLED screen itself, the thunderbolt 3 port of my P1 GEN2 magically stopped working for no reason.  I have been using the laptop with an external display ever since I got the laptop. All went well. Suddenly from yesterday, the external display starts turning into a blue sreen with "NO SIGNAL" shown on it.  I had a windows cumulcative update (KB4532693) and windows security update (KB4524244) yesterday and I suspected that the update might be the culprit. I rolled back the OS. No change. Still NO SIGNAL.  I searched this Forum. Played with Thunderbold 3 menu in the Bios. Everything was enabled and every single option of "security level" was tried. Still NO SIGNAL.  I checked Intel Mangaement Engine software. It is already the latest version. Reinstalled it. Still NO SIGNAL.  I checked Nvidia driver. Latest version already.  In sum, the problem is: the thunderbolt port is still able to power the extenal display but just simply does not pass signal to the external display. HDMI port, however, still passes signal if use an HDMI cable.  I want to give it a shot here to see if anyone has experienced similar issues and how they sovled the problem before I call Lenovo technical support, the staff of which does not seem to know more than some people here on this Forum.

Hello all. I was talking on skype and lost internet connectivity while talking. I received the error above (Firewall Settings HTTP (port 80) HTTPS port 443 FTP port 21 error message). I am running a laptop with windows XP and IE 7 and my antivirus is AVG and I also have Ad-Aware.

I'm not much of a computer person but I did some research online and tried a few things: I turned off the option on skype's advanced settings for it to listen on Port 80 and then rebooted. I also ran a command, 'netstat -aon' and did not find a listing of 1270.0.1:80/443 or which seems to imply that nothing should be affecting port 80 or 443.

I also downloaded firefox and it cannot access the internet either. The only way I'm able to access the internet at the hotel I'm located at was to call the hotel's tech support and they had me go into the LAN settings of internet options and manually select port 8080.

Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Well, this has me baffled. My Bell Internet Security Services Activation (I just installed it on a computer not used for some 4 or 5 months) popped up a window saying "Waiting for Internet connection"...and waiting and waiting. But my Netgear wireless connection to the router in the house indicates "very good" signal strength, which I thought meant I was connected. Obviously not!

I tried opening IE. "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" (much as I expected)

Clicked the button which was showing on the IE cannot connect page "Diagnose connection problems" and followed the instructions. The final diagnostic is "Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check the firewall settings for the ports HTTP...etc." Where on this earth are they?!

I checked the Windows Firewall settings and found it "off (not recommended)" so I switched it on.

I re-ran the diagnostic on the IE page and nothing has changed.

My question is:

How do I check the settings for HTTP port (80) and HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21)? Also what do I set them to?

Many thanks, in advance, for a solution to my problem!

A:Solved: Help! Settings for HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443), FTP port (21)

So you just installed an Internet Security Suite which has a Firewall built-in and then you enabled XP' built-in firewall? I am baffled as to why you would do that. The new software you installed has to be blocking it somehow. I would search their website for known issues.

Or just uninstall it and use something different.

Is anyone by any chance know how to prevent this?
I don't want to see other people keep scanning my port. Please advice.

Seriously, the reason you need a firewall is because of the idiots on the other side of the firewall! If there were never port scans, and worms, viruses, and spyware, we wouldn't need a firewall.

Sygate is merely warning you that it has blocked that ip address from scanning your ports. I believe it will block that IP address for 600 seconds automatically(if you are connect to the internet directly and not using a router)- you can set it to block that IP address for 99,999 seconds which is about 72hrs.

The IP address points to Verizon Online LLC, and i doubt that it is anything to worry about. If you block all connections, then nothing will be able to connect to the internet.

Everything seems fine, stealthed ports are nothing to worry about, andyour computer did not reply to TCP/ICMP pings. The open port is one of the first ports that computers use, so it could be some random program, but it has also been related to the W32/Kipis.a virus.

If you're worried, download the attachment and run it. It'll make a text file and if you are infected with the virus, otherwise it'll be blank. Below is the content of the VBS file.

I have recently installed the program Veoh TV on my PC. I have noticed that as soon as I open the program it connects to the internet whether I am using it or not. As long as I leave it in the background my modem is flashing. The only way I can stop this is by exiting the program completely. I can understand that it connects to the net while I am downloading or watching a film or TV show but not when I am not using it. Is this normal behaviour?.

I use Comodo CFP Firewall, Antivir AV, Spyware Blaster, Comodo Boclean, AVG Antispyware, Super Antispyware. I use Firefox as my main browser and have Noscripts and Adblock installed as add-ons. I have scanned my PC and am told my machine is not infected.

Since installing Veoh TV I have gotten lots of high severity events in my Firewall log which are described as UDP Port Scan. It gives the attacker as I am not computer savvy enough to know what this means. My Firewall rules for Veoh TV are as follows.

Application -------Detination--------Port---------Protocol---------Permission.
Veoh Client-------Any---------------Any---------UDP In/Out------Allow------.
Veoh Client-------Any---------------Any----------TCP / Out-------Allow------.

I feel sure that this is something I am missing in my Firewall rules rather than a real problem but not being very PC tekkie I thought I would ask some advice here.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

A:Veoh Tv And Udp Port Scan

I have Veoh TV. They're a legit site so unless it's slowing your computer down it's not a big deal. I don't think it does. What it's probably doing is refining your search choices. I guess it also depends on how persnickety your firewall is. I haven't had any problems with Veoh and I'm OK with it working in the background. A lot of programs do that. I guess you could change preferences in the Veoh player but I haven't done that.

First off my router is a Netgear model WNR834bv2.
I have been trying to open port 22 on my router so that I can grade the homework that I am doing for school using the website academy.redhat.com
I run windows 7 64bit with VMware workstation and CentOS running in that so that I can do the Linux work.
After trying to forward the port to get it open after 4 hours i have managed to get it from "Closed" to "Stealth" and now i can not get it past that point. I have bypassed my router by plugging right into the cable modem. I have Time Warner if that helps at all. I have disabled Windows firewall also to try and figure out if maybe that is why the port is not open. If there is any other ideas or anything that could be helpful please let me know.

A:Need help opening port 22!

I am going to assume since you are trying to forward port 22, you are trying to SSH into your CentOS VM?
Can you currently SSH into CentOS when you are on your local lan?

I have a Netcore router model # 2105 NR. I seem to be having trouble opening a port on this router. I've gone through the manual but so far I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure it out. It doesn't seem to have a port forwarding section when I'm in the main menu. I've noticed that the D-Link routers have it, but this one (probably because it's cheap) doesn't seem to have this section. How do I free up a port ? Can someone guide me through this ? Here is the link to the website with my model:

I really hope that you tech guys can figure this one out !!!

I sent numerous emails to this company with no one responding. Guess I should have spent a bit more money and went with D-Link eh ?

A:Need help opening a port

A quick scan of the link page you provided indicates the router supports port-forwarding.

I quote: "Supports virtual server which makes LAN services (such as FTP, WWW, TELNET, DNS, etc) to be accessible to the Internet users".

Look though your technical documentation for "virtual server"; that's port-forwading.

The general answer is that you forward the port to the computer or game machine you are using.

Maybe portforward.com has details you need.

My router/modem (one box) is a Motorola SBG 940. I need to open port 5190.

My problem is I need it open it up for at least two computers. I can get it open for one, but not the second. The port set-up page ask me for the LAN IP Address. I need to open it on both and If I have to open it up on every computer, it wouldn't matter at all. But it only gives me the option for one LAN IP, and when I try to add two entries, it gives me the error that the ports overlap.

Heres a screenshot if it helps. Thanks!

I have a linksys wrt54g wireless router, most likely original model, I need to open port 5001 for my Slingbox A/V to send video to my laptop when I am not at home. Linksys does not support that model anymore and I don't know where to start. networking host computer is running windows xp home.

A:port opening

Log in to your router by navigating to the IP address of the router ( is the default). Once logged in, click on "Applications and Gaming". Forward port 5001 to the internal IP address of you Slingbox. Click "Save Settings". Done!

Linksys absolutely still supports this router... http://linksys.com. Click Support on the top, click "Choose a Product", "Wireless Routers" under "Routers and Access Points", then your model. Full support is there, including user guide, etc.

Ok I'm having a lot of difficulties with opening a port. I've used all the instructions that I found on portforwarding , got the DNS server IP's from my ISP but for some reason it just doesn't work.
I was under the impression that if you went into properties of "internet protocol (TCP/IP)" in the local area connection and changed the IP there (as well as putting in the DNS's) you were changing your IP? But then I used the portchecker
and a whole different ip pops up then? Also some websites don't work while I got the DNS manually written down in the properties.
what shall I do next?

Is the Zxyel the only external device you are using for Internet?

With NAT, there are two IPs, a local IP and a public. Most websites will only read the public IP, and the local IP is the IP from the network connections, and in utorrent the IP that displays is most likely the public IP.

I have tried to open my ports and forward them, and make exceptions for them for about 5 days, I cannot get any port to register as open. Apparently something is keeping them closed, is there a way to find out what?

I've been trying to open the following ports: 6667,6668, 6669 and 7000. I have a NetGear router which I've accessed and I've followed thse instructions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3YOM-Hcfmk&feature=related

I've checked the ports on canyouseeme.org and they're all closed still.

Now, I've noticed something funny, my router IP address is, which is quite different from the other IP addresses I've seen, could this have something to do with it?

I've also gone into windows firewall and opened up the ports on the "Exceptions" list, nothing seems to work.

I recently added a Linksys WRT310N Wireless-N router to my home network and can no longer access my web/ftp server from outside the local network. Previously, I was running a ZyXEL EQ-66HW ADSL gateway in router mode as a hub and wireless AP. With the ZyXEL running by itself, I had no problem running XAMPP (Apache/FileZilla/etc..) on my internal server with a dynamic/DHCP ip address from my ISP. Problem was that I needed wireless-n and the ZyXEL only went up to G. So I put the ZyXEL in bridge-mode, turned off its wireless and DHCP and connected the Linksys as a router/firewall/AP. So far, no problem - bridge works, Linksys gets the external DHCP address, internal network gets its subnet from the router and the wireless is up. No problems routing internal to external - everything external to internal times-out. I can ping my ISP/DHCP external address, however. So it seems to me it a firewall problem. I tried forwarding my main ports 80/20-21 and opening the same on my COMODO personal firewall. No luck. I turned on DMZ to my server with COMODO still on, nothing. Disabled software firewall and tried both regular forwarding and DMZ. Still nothing. Help? I had the same problem before with the Linksys when it was using a cable-modem. Also, I was using AVG firewall before when it worked - I have newly switched to the COMODO.

Hi I have tried many resolutions and nothing. It all worked before with 2 cheap routers off of my cable modem (High Speed Cogeco Cable) but I couldn't password protect the routers because my wireless for laptop wouldn't log on at all?

1) So now I have a new rca cable modem (from provider) to a linksys ezx55w 5 port switch (not in the uplink port I assume since I have tried with and without from modem).

2) From switch to D-Link Di-524 (for wireless in yard and garage if I choose to bring laptop out here or around) to two computers in garage

3) From switch to 100+ foot of cat cable to house to an X-Micro also wireless for where laptop mainly stays) (cheap router but works great)

So all should be fine as I have researched and had replies to do it this way for ease of not conflicting hooking 2 routers together.

NOT SO...lol.

After reading I do not see if there is something in the settings I should do to each router still...since they (to me) are on seperate lines from the 5 port switch? Or maybe is this a cause from my provider not allowing me to use 2 seperate lines as I see it as well?

ANY HELP is greatly appreciated please been working on this for over 3 weeks now and read so much that all the scenerios don't make sense anymore.
Take Care,

A:HERE WE GO AGAIN...ROUTER, 5 port switch ROUTER off MODEM? and Wireless.

the linksys is not a router it switch it's not a managed switch
you can not give it a ip address
try the d-link first then the switch turn off dhcp in the x-micro
past that I don't do wireless

Hi cookiegal.

Your stickies are very informative, but I did have one question. I used to use Gibson Research to get an idea of how my ports look to the Internet. But lately I can't seem to connect to the site. Are you aware of any reason that may be?

I really do not know of any other site that compares with GRC's Shields Up!
