Blocked Ports


This thread's discussion is locked. If it doesn't give you the information you need, head to its forum board for active discussions or to start a new discussion.

After being re-directed 5 times between tech support plus agents (you guys are halarious) thought I would post here.

Real Simple;

Opened a port on my Actiontec T1200h so I can connect to my LAN remotely via VPN. Port shows its closed though it's properly configured.

Is a business plan required to open ports? And use a VPN? Are All ports blocked with a consumer (dynamic IP) plan? Think that might be it, so if you can confirm then mystery solved.

Read a lotta article about Telus pulling corporate bull**bleep** about the topic.

So to summarize, should I be able to connect to my LAN remotely via windows VPN without business plan? If so, any idea why the port won't open?

Yes, Telus blocks some ports on residential accounts. See this thread for more info.
