    Hi guys,

    Is it possible through port explorer to open ports? I have Win XP with the built in firewall enabled and also have Panda Platinum Internet Security which has a firewall and it's also enabled. I want to open ports 7237, 7238, and 7239. Can you describe me the exact process for opening these ports?

    Thanks

    Hi Salvation, Port Explorer does not open ports except for doing it's own checks such as Resolve, ping etc.
    You will have to set rules in your firewall (Panda) to allow these ports outbound access. XP's firewall does not stop outbound connections as a rule.

    Try posting in the Wilders firewall forum where you may receive more attention

    Same applies. Try the firewall forum.
