Hello I have Norton Internet Security since about nine months.
For my FileSharingProgram, there should be one UDP and One TCP port
open and listening.
Nine months ago I opened these two ports, and afterwards everything
worked fine. But Now since about a month ago, these Ports are always
stealth. Even if I disable the Firewall all my ports are still
The only way I got an open port, is to deinstall Norton internet
Security. At this time I had all the ports open.
(This is the proof that I have NOT blocked the Ports because of my
ISP, a Router or something else)
After having reinstalled NIS, all my ports were stealthended. And when
I made Rules to open some ports, and to unstealth them. It didn't
help. They are still steath.
I unhit the option in the properties, for stealthening unused ports.
Shortly I tried everything, but I can't get a port to be visible from
Has anybody had a similar Problem?
What couls be the Problem????
