[Southeast] help with port forwarding
actiontec port fwd
Sorry I am new to all of this. I am trying to set up an ftp server and i am trying to open a port on my actiontec router so I can connect to it. I thought I did it right as you can see from the first screenshot, but when I go to canyouseeme.org and test the port, it says its blocked? (2nd screenshot) Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you for the reply...I only have one router, and the only software firewall I have is the windows firewall, but I had already tried disabling it to no avail

Looking at your port forward screen shot, it looks like you are trying to get a server running on a non-standard port. Try first to get it running on the standard port first. Maybe you've already done that.
If you can't make the connection on the non-standard port, it may be because the server isn't listening on that port. Here's a very useful tool to set up a listener on a specified port. That at least will verify your port forward is working. »www.softpedia.com/get/Security/S ··· er.shtml
