Hi, I am struggling to get my ports open on Excitel Broadband and I have tried a lot of stuff which are mentioned over the web. (Please don't say Zerotier since that's a way-around not solution)



I can't believe my eyes. Do you agree?

Is it really true?

Just to be sure what are you using windows / linux?
Can you show a picture of portforward / dmz settings
Also if windows did you check if the firewall is allowing incoming connections on that port
Even though you allow the application sometimes you'll have to manually create a rule in windows to get it working

If Linux try dmz on router and then accept all connections on iptables just for a test

Also what's the router setup you have
Like fiber ONT -> TP-LINK - > pc
Or are there any devices in between

I have a feeling that the reply means to say that they are not explicitly blocking any port. Like say port 46789, because some gaming service is using it.

Or maybe it's actually working. I'll try dmzing my laptop in the router and try to access it. Will update this post with the result.

EDIT: Nope still doesn't work.

is it windows if yes you might need more than just DMZ on router cause windows firewall is kinda shitty

Yup, so what I did was I added my laptop's IP as the DMZ in the router. Then I started a simple HTTP server using python on port 34884 and allowed python to go through my firewall.
Windows is allowing connections because I can connect to my pc in my Local Network. But when I do a port scan of the public IP which I can only port 22 (ssh), and another port for BGP is open.

Is there any way I can know which ports are allowed by the Excitel?

I want to use some ports for my applications.

Are you trying to say, they don't have any ports open?

also note that mostly port 21 ,22 ,80 , 25 are usually closed on home connections
