Look in your router/modem settings.

Run the All Service Ports test.

TCPview will show you what ports are open/in use and by who(what)

netstat -a

It's also relevant to check which holes have been poked in your firewall (called Exceptions or Permissions, depending on the Firewall App) if you're working on security issues or trying to make a hole for an app.

Control Panel... Windows Firewall

What I am trying to do is open two ports that are necessary to host multiplayer games in FSX.
My router is a Dynalink RTA1025wv6 which works very well.
The ports I want to open are 23456 and 5073.. Below is what I have done.

Port Forwarding Setup

Virtual Server allows you to direct incoming traffic from WAN side (identified by Protocol and External port) to the Internal server with private IP address on the LAN side. The Internal port is required only if the external port needs to be converted to a different port number used by the server on the LAN side. A maximum 32 entries can be configured.

Server Name External Port Start External Port End Protocol Internal Port Start Internal Port End External IP Address Server IP Address WAN Interface Remove
flight simulator x 23456 23456 UDP 23456 23456 ALL pppoa_0_0_100
flight simulator x 6073 6073 UDP 6073 6073 ALL pppoa_0_0_100

Have I put this in the right place? The router accepted it and it is entered, but it does not show up in TCPView.
I can not tell if it is working properly until I get somebody on line at the other end.My conection can not be read by me after I have set up a game.
I would appreciate any help,

I see you mention you want to open port 5073 but you say you have opened 6073. Which is it ?

Sorry. 6073 is the right one. Blame my stiff fingures..

Have you also opened the same ports in the Windows Firewall?
