Sorry guys, long question here...


Have portscanned my network using the Router's IP address and the loopback address on the scanning PC...


Detected a number of open ports on the Router that I want to close.


I've blocked the ports using the computer's firewall (inbound and outbound, all protocols) but the loopback scan still shows them as open.


Does anyone know how to block specific ports on a D-Link 3780 Router?


Someone passed me this guide:




The Router-IP portscan still shows the ports I'm trying to block as open.


Can anybody advise as to what I'm doing wrong?
