Windows 7: How to allow *all* incoming TCP connections

You do not want to run the UPnP scan. You want the port scan.

All ports showed to be STEALTH-rated.

Then the port forwarding and/or the computer itself is not setup correctly.

Sorry - I'm not very experienced in opening up ports. I spend my time closing them. I don't ever want my internet facing IP address to respond to a port scan.

Then you should really learn what it is and how to use it if you plan to use your program over internet. Of course, online scans don't know what's bad with your setup, just if it it's open or not, only you have the means to get the exact cause.


Question, when you setup the port forwarding on your router web admin screen, what did you put on the target IP address? It should be the local IP of your computer.

...and that local IP address should probably be a static one.

I don't own the router, I just access it. I used PFConfig.exe to do portforwarding but it's useless.

You need to use the router web configuration screen to setup it. It's model-specific, but generally quite similar. But you of course need to have access to it to do so. I you aren't the owner, and the owner don't let you to configure it, you're pretty much out of luck. Are you by any chance on a shared connection?
Without chance of get a port forwarding going on the router, it will block every connection attempt from internet into any LAN computer, which will disrupt your program.

Your options would be to get permission (and the admin password) to setup the router, get another internet connection to test, or to refactor your program to do something like TeamViewer, if you can get an external reliable server.

BTW, what's pfconfig.exe anyway? I don't see anything like it in Windows?

I will keep it simple.
You should not be trying to change a router or any other piece of equipment that you don't own or don't have permission from the owner to do such things.

The forum rule.

6) No discussions of hacking someones system, network, password, etc.

Chill! It's my mum's router. I don't legally own it but I have permission to access it. I understand why you thought that though.
