 Post subject: How can I open ports?
PostPosted: Sun Mar 14, 2004 3:57 pm 
Unfortunately i have yellow lighs, so that it means that i have some ports blocked by my provider..

However, i have no permission to the host (main host in the lan).

So, Is it possible to open ports from my computer?

If your provider or main router is blocking the ports, and you have no access to it, then there's nothing you can do. The ports have to be opened at the point of blocking... sorry.

Sorry to disagree, but there is something you could try. Ask your provider if it would be possible to purchase public ip addresses for your machines at home. You may need to setup your network connection as a bridge, to do this.

If you are running nat and your router supports it, you might try routing the public ip. This would forward the entire external public ip over to one of your private internal ips. Well i hope that helps.

edit- I forgot to menchion that providers almost never block ports on public ip addresses. Because well that would void the point of getting a public ip address heh.
