Opening Ports [Resolved]

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.

You can also try Comodo’s UserAnywhere. :wink:,34.0.html

thanks :slight_smile:

I will put resolved on this…
