Opening Port 3306


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am trying to grant remote access to a DB on my local PC running on port 3306. I have run a port checking tool from the web that says the port is closed. I have added a port forward in the router and a packet rule in KTS at Settings>Firewall>Packet Rules (See Photo), moved the rule to the top of the stack but the port checking tool still reports 3306 closed. What am I doing wrong here?


I am running KTS 21.3.10.39(i) on  Windows 10 21H2  Build 19044.1706

I'm looking in the reports for the firewall, and I see no rejections, so if the port scan was reaching the firewall and being rejected, it would show in those reports, right? Maybe my ISP blocks 3306? I looked on xfinity and it did not say anything about blocking that port. How would I know?

Isn't the default not to stop the firewall until the computer is shut down completely? I turned it off and it kicked me off the remote login and I was not able to log back in until someone could turn the firewall back on. So I don't know if the Windows firewall activated once the KTS was disabled.
