  1. Ok, so I have a Netopia 3347 model router and Netgear GSM7224 switch...i'm trying to do port forwarding, but when I run a program to see if port is forwarded properly, it says "No". I found in router the place where to do open up the port, i.e. in Netopia they are called Pinkholes, and it still says that its blocked. Do I need to do something in the switch? Please help me out or advice.

    Thank you in advance.

    What program? Have you also given the program access from your firewall?

    a switch has NO controls, ie: it operates similar to a hub. ALL the controls
    are in the router.

    you port forwarding is FROM the router to a SINGLE system on your LAN,
    with one or a range of port numbers.
