Blocked Ports??

I am trying to open TCP port 4004 on my system so the Internet filter software 'Brightfilter' will work.

I have tried opening the port in my D-link router and switching off all firewalls and still if I use 'Shields Up' the port is Stealth?? Brightfilter will not run

Anyone had similar problems? Any ideas? I've raised a ticket with Plusnet as I wonder if they are blocking it somehow, related to the 'Surf' feature perhaps?

All ideas gratefully received.

Blocked Ports??

I have noticed that during the evening, ports that during the morning/afternoon were open and working are coming up as 'Blocked' upon a check.

Wether it is down to actual blocking, or Ellcoya profiling causing so much slowdown that it causes the pings to timeout and think "ah..no reply..must be blocked" and reposts as such.

But no, i have sat there in the evening and kept re-adding the same rules over and over thinking "Nooo i just opened it!"
