Default Ports not opening

Hey all,

I have turned on the sever on the host pc and it seems that despite the firewall rules being implemented, only some of the required ports are opening up. The biggest culprits are all the zone ports (7000, 7001, etc.)

Any idea why this is happening? I initially thought it was the router or ISP causing the issue, but it doesn't seem to open them on the pc side.

Have you tried Shield UP! to test your net presence?

https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

This will tell you exactly what your outward facing presence is like, then you can hand tailor your router tables to forward the ports required.

Are you using just Windows Defender or do you have a third party product?

Do you know how to forward ports on your router?

I'm using windows defender. The problem is that I am forwarding fron the router but that the ports are not opening up on the comuter itself. When I run McDonalds it shows some of the ports open but not all, even though the rules are in place

Are you sure your ports aren't open? I ran into the same issue, or so I thought, until I realized the most commonly recommended port scanner (http://www.canyouseeme.org/) does not perform a UDP scan. The zone ports are indeed UDP.

Try this one instead: https://www.ipfingerprints.com/portscan.php

Be sure to tick the Advanced option and check UDP Scan. GlassDeviant's suggestion may also handle UDP Scanning, I'm not sure. Also, be sure your server is running when you attempt this; if nothing on your computer is actively listening on a port, a port scanner usually won't see it even if your router/PC is configured properly.

I can try that. I had been using the netstat -an command in cmd to list open ports and the 7000s didnt show up

I ran that GRC site and it shows the 7000s ports as stealthed, even though the rule was added to windows defender.

Sounds like that is your problem. You may need to open the ports yourself, or check your router (cable/dsl "modems" are routers, too, they are not actually modems). There is usually a way to configure the ports yourself, or failing that talk to your ISP and have them do it for you. Most reputable ones will do it for free, some may charge a small fee.
