There's less risk of error by selecting both protocols, with almost no added security risk.We want to make sure that traffic is allowed in both directions for these ports so, select In/Out in the direction drop down box. If you are opening a singe port, use the Local Port drop down box to select single. Then enter the port to forward into the first box to the right of the Local Port Drop down box. If you are opening a range of ports, use the Local Port drop down box to select Range. Then enter the lowest port number of that range in to the first box to the right of the Local Port drop down box. The highest number of that range should go into the last box on that line. Click the Ok button on the Configure Application Rules page to finish the modifications for this program.

To test if your port has been properly opened, you can use our Port Checker tool.
