I have a Linksys WRT160N v2 and i play a lot of games, and enjoy hosting games.however there are too many ports to forward. I was wondering that if i turned off my routers firewall would this eliminate me having to port forward? and if i could do that how would i. I know how to access my router so you can give instructions form that point of if you would like
I am having some trouble with utorrent and getting an open port, I narrowed the problem to either windows firewall or kaspersky 8 or even both. If i disable firewall and kaspersky I can get an open port, but once I turn them on utorrent slows down indicating the port is not open. I have included utorrent as allowed in widows firewall but same problem. Has anyone had same prob or got some advice on what I should try?
Why Bitdefender firewall blocks utorrent port only on windows 7?
I'm using Windows 7 ultimate RTM with all the updates, utorrent 1.8.5 and bitdefender Internet security 2010. The firewall is set to "allow known programs" and utorrent was put automatically on "allow", but if I try a port test it shows that port doesn't appear to be open.
I had the same settings on my windows vista ultimate and the port was always open.
Just want to ask if someone can help me sign in to skype. The following message always appears "Cant open skype. you are already signed in in this computer. Please sign out and try again." I already uninstall and installed new skype and the same message recurs.
Google Chrome has been blocked by my computer, it brings up this message "This may be because your firewall or antivirus software wrongly thinks Google Chrome is an intruder on your computer and is blocking it from connecting to the Internet.
Try adding Google Chrome as a permitted program in your firewall or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again." I have tried what it said and I do not have an anti virus program but it still will not allow it to run
I upgraded to windows 7, now I can not access an IP address that I had accessed before. It's actually a camera system at my house that I used to be able to access online. It now says that it will not let me access it because it cn not verify the security certificate
I recently installed new software that requires port 8080 to function. When I try to run the software I get an error that port 8080 is being used.How do I check to see what process is using port 8080 so that I can open up the port to run the software? MACHINE: Windows 7x64
Recently had a virus infection and noticed that the windows firewall service is missing. When trying to reset to recommended settings by using control panel received error code 0x80070424. Cannot access other computers or shared files/folders on home network. Saw a previous post dated 12-17 that appears to be the same problem.
After becoming unable to download identified updates in Windows Update, and also being unable to search for new updates, I did a detailed scan with Microsoft Security Essentials which identified and removed some malware (Exploit:Java/CVE-2010-0840.IZ).
Since Windows Update still wouldn't work I restored my settings from last Friday with no improvement. Using Fix problems with Windows Update gets stuck on Fixing problem.
I then tried to do a reinstall as an update, but the installer was unable to find any updates (or rather it was forever* trying to locate any).
On a tip from a friend I looked in the hosts file but it was unaltered. *Forever is a relative term but in this case it's 90+ minutes.

i want to ask something about my LAN connection, i use Laptop with windows 7 64 bit as my operating system, and i want to connect it with my PC to share file and play together using LAN, my PC use windows XP as the operating system., how to set IP, firewall, etc?
I am having problem with windows 7 firewall settings. I get a notification from Action center which informs me that my firewalll is off. How can I on and then off the firewall whenever I start my system?
I have 2 computers connected with Wireless network,with Virgin Braodband Router.I understand this has its own firewall turned on.So do I need to have another firewall installed on the computer?THe windows firewall is always torned on, Windows 7.
after I installed RC 7100 the firewall used to ask me if I'd like to allow a outbound connection for every program that would try to connect.
Unfortunately it doesn't do that anymore. In the Windows Firewall Properties I can only chose Allow or Block Outbound for the different profiles. If I set it to block, it will silently block all outbound connection attempts.
I want to have it blocked by default, but I don't want to have to create rules manually for each program, I'd like the original behavior, that is, have it ask me on connection attempt. Where can I set that?
I'm having some problems with windows' firewall. Last night I tried to set up a simple ftp server (to share a couple of folders, and access that folder through other computers connected to the network by typing the IP address into a browser/ftp client on the other computer). My problem simply is, that I cannot connect to the ftp. It works fine when I try to access it from my computer (which is the server).
But I can't connect to it through other computers, unless I turn off Windows Firewall. I tried playing around with the Inbound/Outbound rules (disabled/enabled everything), nothing worked. I also have FTP allowed in "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall", and I still haven't managed to get it to work. Can anyone suggest any solutions?
I've got an issue that's been driving me crazy. I've installed MobaSSH and the windows firewall absolutely refuses to let it through. I've taken down the firewall and everything works fine, so I know its the firewall. Same problem with a Serv-u FTP server but I'm not as worried about that as I am the SSH server. MobaSSH adds itself as a service, so while it was running I found the process and made sure that it was added to the firewall, I can find nothing else to add to exceptions. I haven't found much in terms of firewalls for Windows 7, so I would prefer to get this to work instead of switching firewalls
