Hi,

I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.0.125 and I would like to open port 50815 UDP for use with Azureus. Please can someone tell me how to do this safely?

Thanks,
Joe

Are you sure you don't want to open a tcp port? (READ FURTHER DOWN)

From KAV support

set the firewall to training mdoe and you'll recieve popups when connection attempts not defined in the rules are made.


You should not open a port, instead set a number of rules for the application on your PC.
If KAV firewall does not allow this, I advice that you use a different firewall like Zonealarm Free.
By opening a port you render yourself vulnerable. Instead you need to allow access for a specific application.

Hope that made sence. :thumbsup:

If I'm not making sence. Feel free to ask again.

Hi nightspydk,

I set a new rule in Kaspersky with the description: 'Allow Inbound & Outbound TCP connections, where: Local Port: 50815.'

Was that the right thing to do?

Thanks,
Joe

Hi Joe. :thumbsup:

The port number is fine.
TCP is allright.
Inbound + outbound, yeah you need that.
The problem is, I'm running another firewall than you, and how you set that stuff up is different for me.
I cannot say since I do not use KAV. Isn't there some sort of manual with that thing?

Sorry about that. :flowers:

Hi nightspydk,

Thanks for the advice. I'm happy that it's secure. I couldn't find a reference to what I wanted to do in the help files.

Thanks again,
Joe

to open a certain port,u need to port forward.go to www.portforward.com.im using kaspersky internet security 2009 n i think its the best AV.port forward is the safest way to allow port.

I have the same problem & i'm using KAV 2009 as well. I've done the portforward business already. What do I need to do in KAV09 to sort it?
