  • Windows firewall is off but cannot access any ports

    HI, Windows firewall is off but I cannot access any ports. Ive tried everything, putting it on with exceptions, putting it off with or without exections but all ports are blocked. This is a basic Win xp SP2 innstall with all the latest updates. No antivirus or external firewall. Does anyone have any clues??

    Thanks - Jamm

    Hi Jamm.

    Could you provide a little more details on what you're trying to do?
    What are you trying to access on these ports?

    Windows won't respond when you try to connect to a port unless there's a service listening on that particular port.

          Hi, yes yes of course, was in a littlebit hurry last time, sorry.
          These was a software that was supposed to be listening on this port(witch i forgot to mention in the post). But the innstall of that software was bad no matter if I uninnstalled and innstalled again.
          I went through the windows innstall again and the software and everything was OK

          Thanks again - Jamm.
