I am running through a WRT150N router with a static IP.
Here is the first problem:
When I have no ports forwarded, port 23 (Telnet) is open. Does anyone know why this might be? Isn't it dangerous for a common port like this to be open?
When I try to forward ports, they do not work. I have disabled my routers firewall, my computers firewall, and enabled DMZ for my IP, but for whatever reason, when I do port test checks (with many different testers), it still says they are closed. Theoretically, shouldn't that open my computer to the internet completely? And should all of my ports be open? So far (all of the port testers) say they every port except port 23 is closed.
Thanks for any feedback!
