I recently forwarded a port to my router however even with the correct settings applied, the port is still not registering as 'open' with my computer. The specific port has been allowed in Windows security settings. I am using Norton anti-virus, and am wondering if there is anything i need to do in Norton in order to allow the forwarding of this port?

I'm sure there is an exceptions section in there somewhere which allows you to specify a port you want to allow outside access to. I haven't used norton in a long time. I'm not a very big fan of norton. It uses too much memory.:) There are many anti-viruses out there that do the same job as norton or better without sucking up all your computer's resources.

Anyway, what are you trying to forward the port for? Is it a game?

i cant find any menu options in the software for creating exceptions..i got it with the machine when i bought it and it's a trial edition that expires in three months so i'm thinking that maybe it's not allowing me to access all possible options..your right though, i should probably get something other than norton..i heard AVG was pretty good..thanks for the input
