    I doubt this is a Windows Firewall issue...

    Usually, the new routers have port forwarding, but only for a specific local IP (assigned by the DHCP router).
    Eg.: only 192.168.1.4 has port 3784 opened; 192.168.1.3 and the others don't.

    As Matt suggested, that site has info for most routers. If you can't find the info there, then google it or, even better, consult with the router's manual.

    After you think you got it right, just use http://www.canyouseeme.org/ to quickly see if you can accept connections via that port.
