As long as you're able to access them from the lan with the reconfigured ports, all should be fine and I totally agree that it's highly likely a firewall issue. I hope you get that sorted out soon
Please try using this tool from Sysinternals, TCPView
it will show you detailed listings of all TCP and UDP endpoints on your system, including the local and remote addresses and state of TCP connections. Could show you which ports are used and possible conflicts from the one you chose to open
