I went to
to check to see what my external IP address. Regardless of what port I enter, it tells me that the port is blocked.
I have a LinkSys router that basically has the default settings with the exception that I have WEP encrptin setup and I have forwarded a few ports, including 80 and 69. I forwarded them to the 192.x.x.103 IP address of the PC which is running IIS.
That PC runs Symantec Endpoint Protection, which I right mouse clicked in the tray to Disable.
These steps used to make my PC visible so I could host my own web site in IIS on port 80, or some other port, like 69. Yet, the Open Port tool cannot see my IP when it checks eiether port and when I navigate to http://my external ip/ I get "page cant be displayed"
At first I was thinking that maybe Comcast is blocking port 80, but 69 doesnt work eiether.
I do not see any other blockking set up in my router and, as I mentioned, I went with teh defaults except where discussed.
This is a corporate PC and Symantec End Point Protecion is new to it (this previously worked on teh same PC with Symantec Protection Agent), but I thought that disabling Sym End Pt from the tray, that that would effectively neutralize it. I do not have the rights to kill the program itself.
Any suggestions on what else to try to make my PC externally visible?
