    Hey so I made a post awhile ago about not being able to get any ports open. Well I found a site that runs a check that shows your ports as either closed opened or stealth. Stealth means the ISP is blocking the port and it can not be opened. Problem is majority of the ports are stealth so I cant do anything. My ISP is Verizon so is there anything i can do? If i call up tech support will they unblock specific ports for me?

    You will have to get another ISP. Cell Phone ISP are not good for laptop and desktop computers. Lots of restrictions.
