Hi All,

I have the follorwing router: 3Com Officeconnect ADSL wireless firewall router
I have updated the router to the latest firmware 2.06

Now I'm trying to open ports on that router, bur nothing seems to work. I have enabled virtual servers, disabled the firewall, etc. But everytime I check my ports thru the tools on whatismyip.com it keeps telling me the port is closed.

I wonder if anyone has this router and facing such problems.

Thanks,
-Gus

The port being "closed" indicates there is no application handling the request, not that you didn't forward to port.

How about being more specific about exactly what you're trying to do and the applications involved?

Actually it seems that I'm going through a proxy (fom my ISP), and that is why whatismyip.org is detecting a closed port. I added a virtual server (or port forwarding) in my 3Com router and tested my local ip and it is working.

Thanks for your help.
