How do I change the firewall settings to allow port 80 as well as port 2077 and 2078?? I have created a website with Sibername.com and am having problems publishing it. The error message is >Cannot connect to raywayagautoparts.ca using fsockopen, please make sure raywayagautoparts.ca resolve to the server correctly and outgoing TCP port 80 is opened.<

raywayagautoparts.ca is the name of my website. Can anyone help??

Opening ports in a firewall is dangerous, that is why I said to let the program through the firewall, if it uses these ports then they will be allowed when that program is used.

Opening ports manually will allow any program to use them, and will be open to attack from the internet.

Control Panel>Windows firewall>Exceptions Tab>Add Port button

while you are in the add a port window, click the "What are the risks of opening a port"

Hello,
You may want to check with your ISP, and make sure they do not block those ports upstream. Also make sure you turn off any firewall or virus software to check it, and then turn it back on. If it works with those off you will have to contact that software's support for help. If you still have issues please feel free to ask.

Thank you,
