My computer can't process UDP packets through port 6112 and I'm using Windows '98. I've done a lot of searching, but most sites seem to imply this is the most obvious part of the problem and the easiest to fix. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to open the port.

I had problems with my ISP before, but I sought help and got them fixed. After the fixing, some games refuse to work, citing port 6112. I've pretty much narrowed the problem down to needing to open the port, and I would greatly appreciate some assistance with this.

To anyone who answers, THANK YOU.

What is your connection (dial-up, DSL or Cable)? If broadband what modem and/or router are you using?

Are you using a firewall?

Run ShieldsUP to see what ports are blocked. Some ISPs block ports at their end.

Your router might possibly be blocking the packets. Check out www.portforward.com and pick your router and then the game (warcraft three maybe?) that uses the port and then it will give you instructions on what to do from there if that is the issue.

He's using dial-up. I don't believe he is connected through a router.

I went to the website you linked and had them probe port 6112..I'm not sure what I'm even looking for. Could I please get a step by step explanation of how to even let you know what my problem might be? I'm not running a firewall. What else can I tell you?

Port /Status /Protocol and Application

6112/ Stealth/ dtspcd dtspcd


I had them "probe" that port, and those were the results. As you can see, not a word about being opened or closed.

Contact your ISP to see if they are blocking that port.

I contacted my ISP and some guy named Blake with a very strong Hindu accent in his voice told me that they don't have expertise in the PROGRAM I was using that needed port 6112. He told me to contact that program's manufacturer and ask for their assistance.

Can we please stop talking to me in shorthand, walking me through this? Is there anything I can do, at home, from my computer, to fix this problem? Does anyone here know how to fix this problem other than asking other people if they know how to fix it?

You should be able to access all ports with a dial-up connection unless you are using a router or firewall that can block the port. In other words there is no reason that you cannot access port 6112 because of Win98 or the dial-up account unless your ISP is blocking it.

Thank you. Any suggestions on what to say to make my ISP get the point? I apparently need to make them understand that they are blocking a needed port. I'm not sure how to say this--their customer service isn't very good.

If that's the case I would seriously consider switching. If they cannot understand what you have already explained to them they are either ignorant or sounding that way so they don't have to deal with it.
