  1. I have a question about my firewall, I use Comodo Personal Firewall

    My question is how do I open a required port thing so my server can go online without having to disable it?

    Also same thing for my internet firewall

    Which do I open?


    I'm hosting a World of Warcraft / Counterstrike Source server incase you were wondering :)

    First, use one or the other but not both firewalls. Your pictures are for the
    windows fw and it should be disabled if you wish to use Comodo.

    'Opening a port' has two steps:
    1. port forwading from your router to your LAN system IP address. See your router documentation on the how-to.
    2. enabling access in that systems firewall for the specific port/port range

    In Comodo, you enable access;
    click on Summary
    network network monitor
    + Add
    allow, tcp/udp, in/out
    source ip: any​
    dest ip: any
    source port: any
    dest port: *per your server requirements*
    click OK

    now MOVE UP until you see it above ALL block rule at the bottom.
    (ignore the first block rule at the top)
