Opening ports in Windows Firewall

Before setting up Windows Firewall, make sure you have administrator rights.

  1. To go to firewall settings, click Start, open the Control Panel, and click Windows Firewall (or press Win+R, insert firewall.cpl, and click OK. This method works in all Windows versions and will suit those users who don't have the Start button in their Windows version.)
  2. Click Advanced Settings.
  3. In the left column, click Inbound Rules.
  4. In the right column, click New Rule.
  5. In the pop-up window, select the Port rule and click Next.
  6. Select the required protocol: TCP or UDP.
  7. In the Specific local ports field, enter the required ports. If there are several ports, separate them with a comma or specify the port range using a dash. After you insert all ports, click Next.
  8. Select Allow the connection and click Next.
  9. Select connection profiles and click Next.
  10. Specify the name of the created rule and add a description if necessary. Then click Finish to save changes.
  11. Similarly, create Outbound Rules by specifying the same port ranges as described in points 4–10.
