i havent actually installed CFW yet as i just downloaded it. it may very well be easy to set a rule but i just wanted to check to avoid hassles later. ive just scrapped 1 firewall i found cos after searching endlessly to find a way to add a rule to open a port i found out you cant…
so, whats the best way to open a port? i want to be able to use rdp.
Welcome to the forum.
You should open a port in network monitor.
I will give you an example.
Network monitor works like a router, so you have to “forward” port(s),
like you do in a router, for apps like Torrent/P2P.
Go to Network monitor (security/network monitor).
Right click on your block rule and add/add before.
Do these settings.
Action : Allow Protocol : TCP Direction : In Source IP : Any Destination IP : Any (or zone if you have one) Source Port : Any Destination Port : A single port : 3389 (RDP/Terminal services)
Always remember to place your allow rules you make, above the default block rule.
Network monitor reads the rules from the top to the bottom.
