Windows 7: Ports problem

16 Jun 2011   #1

Ports problem

Hello, I'm having a strange problem. I'm trying to install Sophos and there fore the following ports need to be open: 8192, 8193 and 8194. All firewalls are disabled.
But when I do telnet ipaddress 8192 (where ipaddress is the ip address of the problem pc) from the server I'm getting the folloqwing error message: Could not open connection to the host, on port 8192, connect failed.
It's the same result for the other ports.
What could be wrong?

Jvuz, Telnet is a server/client program that normally uses port 23 for communication and usually talks to an ip address. I'm trying to understand why you want to telnet to the 819x ports you mentioned asyou do not normally need to open the ports manually. Sophos installer program usually installs without any problems and opens the required ports as part of the install.If this is not happening, we need to have more info on how you are configured to go onto the internet..router type etc.

Hello Wilywombat, my problem's solved. The problem was another program used that port (which I needed now for Sophos). After uninstalling that program, the telnet worked. Thanks for helping me out here.
