How to Forward Ports in Windows

mr rockstar

Since Windows XP there is a built-in ability in Microsoft Windows to set up network ports forwarding. Due to it, any incoming TCP connection (IPv4 or IPv6) to local port can be redirected to another local port or even to port on the remote computer. And it is not necessary for system to have a service that listens to this port.

So we will go through Some Normal Process.

  • In the Run prompt (Win + R), Type “control firewall.cpl” , and hit the Enter key.
  • It will open the Windows Firewall console.
  • Select Advanced settings and highlight Inbound Rules in the left pane.
  • Right click Inbound Rules and select New Rule.
  • Add the port you need to open and click Next.
  • Add the protocol (TCP or UDP) and the port number into the next window and click Next.
  • Select Allow the connection in the next window and hit Next.
  • Select the network type as you see fit and click Next.
  • Name the rule something meaningful and click Finish.

You have now opened a firewall port in Windows 10!
