ESET blocking port

Go to solution Solved by Ed Spurrell,

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 I just installed a new MB and cpu and done a clean install of windows 10 Pro.  In my router I have a port forwarded and was working fine with windows defender firewall. I just installed ESET Internet security and activated it. I created a firewall rule to allow the application in and out and set the local port but ESET will not allow the port to open. I followed several how-to's and I have the rule set properly.

Can someone tell me what I am missing or doing wrong?

Greatly appreciate any help here. I need this port open :(

Solved: I just remembered that maybe the router had the port forwarded to the old MB. Sure enough it was the culprit. I changed the computer name and the port is now open.

Hope this helps others.
