I am not sure if I am just missing a trick here and it will be something rather simple, or if I am trying to do something that just isn't going to work..
Anyway, I have an asp.net site and I am using IIS to host it. I have changed the bindings to port
8080 so IIS should be listening on this port.
When I have the bindings set to port
80, I can connect from a remote computer (
ip:80) no problem (I have a rule in Windows Firewall for port
So what I am doing now is, making IIS listen on port
8080 for this site, adding a rule in to Windows firewall for port 8080, and then forwarding port
8080 on my router, although it will not allow me to connect. When I check if this port is open, it tells me it is closed.
Will Windows Firewall not allow you to open individual ports, or do you have to add an application to the firewall?
I have looked all around the internet and everyone just adds the application as an exception to the firewall, I just want to allow a port to be opened and configure it in Windows Firewall.
