Dear EE's

I am trying to open ports 808, 8081, 8082, 1947 for a server app. But i can check port port using port listener and verify through yougetsignal.com.
But when i tried to create rule in windows firewall for all the ports mentioned above to allow ports, i couldnt get through.

Please help me in this issue..

Thank you.

A 'port' is not actually open until you have a program listening on that port.  A web server like IIS or Apache, for example, listens on port 80 for requests.  If the web server is not running, it will appear that port 80 is closed because nothing is listening.  Just allowing it thru the firewall is not enough.
