Windows 7: Opening Ports In Windows

22 Apr 2010   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium

Oh, thank you. I was wondering if it was a built-in Windows program or not, as I could not find it via searching in the Windows search bar.

The fix doesn't seem to have worked though... Also, I cannot run it as Admin, even though I am Admin.

Edit: Device manager works...and, ok. Nevermind. It's working. It hadn't the first few times I tried adding it.

Thank you!

Windows 7 Enterprise (x64); Windows Server 2008 R2 (x64)

Save the .REG file to C:\Windows\Temp

Click the ORB | All Programs | Accessories | Then Right Click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run As Administrator".

Once the Command Prompt opens type:

C: <enter>
CD\Windows\Temp <enter>
IEVerRegFix.reg <enter>
exit <enter>

This should add the .REG file.

This Thread is over a year old. Please start a new thread describing (giving great detail) your problem. UAC and ports are 2 different things. -WS

hi, I'm also trying to open a port. I'm now where you told us to go (firewall --> allowed programs) and I clicked change settings.

Now, I can change a list of programs, but I just want to open two ports (6112 and 6113 to be exact). I know this is probably obvious to all of you, but those 2 ports aren't in the list :)

can someone tell me how I can open them?

thanks in advance
