i want to open 1 port (6112) for a game (company of heroes)
buffalo WBMR G54 (ADSL router) connected by ethernet to pc running windows xp pro
static ip 192.168.11.2
i am using V3 and since installing have not been able to get this port (or any port) to open using every guide on this forum i could find, i check the port status with port detective (gave up on GRC, different results) and looking at firewall logs allways blocks 6112
i have to disable CF to open the port…obviously im not doing the right thing but i cant find any guide (including the online help that comes with the firewall) that explains in plain english how to open a port for an appliaction - i tried the utorrent guide but it doesnt make sense for one port…please help as i know comodo products ROCK albait very techie
If you are behind a router this is usually 95% of why they say ports are open. When I port scan with my router on any port scans I get the “Results” saying they are open. But when I take away the Router and connect just via Modem(no hardware firewall) it shows all ports stealthed (default comodo settings stealth ports) Im 95% sure you are fine in this case. However if you are to test again without a router or hardware firewall and get the same results then we would have a problem. But like I said i’m 95% sure you are fine.
