How do i open a specific port on my soniwall tz210 firewall router?


Ports are communication channels for computers and networks.

Certain applications that run over or connect to the Internet require the use of certain ports.


Firewalls block the use of many ports because they can be like open doors, which viruses and hackers use to gain control of your computer.


However, if you have an application that needs to use a port that the firewall has blocked, you can go into firewall and open that port.


Following these instructions will allow you to open a port in the Windows Firewall and give you guidance for other firewalls.


Go to the control panel and click on "Windows Firewall."

If you are using another firewall application, open that application from the Programs menu.


If you are running Microsoft Firewall, you will have to work with both applications.

Verify the status of the firewall.


The first pane that comes up is the general tab and it should indicate whether the firewall is on or not. If the Firewall is not on, chose the "on" option and click "OK."

Open the Firewall application.


Go to the "Exceptions" tab and choose "Add Port."

Give the port opening a name.


Type in the port number you want to open, then choose either "TCP" or "UDP."

In most cases you will select TCP.

UDP is used for connectionless networking that doesn't require an initial connection to send information.


Or right click on the "Network Internet Access" in the bottom task bar select open network and sharing then select see full map you will see all available connections


Hope this helps

While I try to download anthing from internet, it says ''Your IDM can not download the file.The firewall may block it.''so how can I solve it? i., it says ' you may have a firewall...


file sharing and the internet using mulible ports to complete a download of files to your computer. if you had purchased the IDM program then you need to contact their tech support to find what ports are being used by their program. once your get the port numbers then you set them up to pass through your firewall. if have problems configuring your firewall then you need contact the maker of the firewall that you are using for tech support from them.

I used to be able to log in Paltalk but now cant, is there some way I can find out if it's my computer or teh site is blocked in China?


Turn off the firewall and see if it solves the problem.

You could scan the IP Address of the site, of course this is against their permission being granted ... and normally you shouldn't Port Scan IP Addresses that don't belong to you, but if you know the port or ports (TCP, UDP) that are needed you could test and see if they are reachable from one of several online free firewall port scanners:

Shields UP on GRC.COM is one such animal.

If you have an after-market firewall such as Norton/Symantec or such you might want to disable it. Even uninstall it if necessary. I can't tell you how many times I've yanked Norton/Symantec and others from someones computer because it won't let printing and file sharing and such simple stuff work.

My Netgear PS121 print server requires disabled firewall (Win XP) to install. After installation, which ports has to be open in Windows Firewall, if I want the printserver to work with Windows XP Firewall...


You may try to set Exceptions on the XP Firewall configuration.

Open Windows Firewall, go to Exceptions tab.
Make sure that File and Printer Sharing is checked.
Then click Add Port.
For Port Number, enter 139 and select TCP.
Do the same for port 445 TCP, 137 UDP, 138 UDP, and 9200 TCP.

People cannot see me on cam


every application when it connects to the internet, it uses "ports" , now if the port that the messenger is trying to use for the "cam" is blocked , you basically experience that kinda problem. first disable your firewall (try windows first, then any other firewall (like norton, mcafee or other), also check with your Router or Modem (if DSL) but usually these ports are open by default, but you never know sometimes untill you check it. but your best bet is the firewall that is blocking your port for the cam.
disabling the firewall is the easy solutions, opening the ports is the longer one. of help on opening ports on you DSL modem OR router (or both), check this site
good luck

Webcam wont load on MSN Live


i found its just not firewall. your port is being blocked, some company have blocked ports in some cases.

but check to see if you have norton system works or norton 360. if you do then its probably more than just firewall.

I myself dont like these program, they have always cause trouble.

try shutting them off completely. and then try it

Can't stream media through xbox 360 using WMP11


I had the same problem in Windows XP and I just created a workgroup to share files on the network. Follow these steps if anyone is still having this problem. My gf has vista and must do it automatically but it's just a matter of remembering to establish a workgroup.

To summarize:
- Enable sharing on WMP 11 --> This should adjust windows firewall automatically but be sure to unblock ports for other firewalls, if need be.
- Create a workgroup --> Start...Control Panel....Network setup wizard.
Follow the steps, if you're connectnig through a router, select "this computer connects through a residentail gateway", apply this to any other computers that want to share files on this network, if necessary.
Restart computer to let the workgroup settings take effect and voila...your computer will now be detected.

Firewall/ports


Hello there, you only need to open a port for utorrent, if you use a Router device for sharing your internet connection to more than 1 computer. If you do indeed own a router then you will need to log-in to it, via your web browser and change the necessary settings to forward the port that utorrent uses, to your local computers address.

Please write again if you need more support.

Hope this helps.
