    Question about ports


    Hey everyone. I am getting very frustrated with ports/port forwarding. No matter what port i enter on canyouseeme it says it cannot see me. No matter the port. I am attempting to allow a specific port to connect. But I cannot. I have looked at EVERYTHING. Allowed it thru firewall, read the manual on the r6300 netgear that I have. I have ports forwarded in the router, but no matter what, when I go to canyousee me, it never shows any open port. How do I see what listening port is open? Why would no ports appear to be connectable. Even port 80, it says it cannot see. Very frustrating. I have tried with firewall and antivirus totally off, nothing!

    That is because the Gateway will always Stealth them, to keep outsiders from seeing that they are open.
