Full Version: Opening a Port

I am trying to set up remote desktop on a windows 7 machine. I want to allow incoming access on port 3389 but cannot seem to achieve this. If I switch the firewall off I can access my computer remotely but when I switch the firewall on it is blocked. I have added a resource but that hasn't worked and I have checked help but I can't seem to find any solution to opening port 3389. Any help would be gratefully received.

Welcome. Just set the Remote Desktop to Allow via packet rules.
I have already done this and set up a packet rule but the port 3389 still remains closed. If I switch off the firewall I can see the port open, so there is something in the firewall that is blocking the access, I cannot establish what it is.
From the firewall settings, try changing the network connection(network Tab) to Trusted by right click, OK > OK. This should automatically allow via port 3389.
