Thank you! So one last....two last questions. I can just pick ports -aside from the ones such as 21,80 etc that are already subscribed and just test them? As for the VPN, do I just activate it and the open ports will work or do I have to test for open ports under its specific ip?

What ever ports you need to come in from the internet to your machine you just redo what you did with my program for those ports :wink:

This is good quick read

Since your all fixed up I will lock this thread :wink:

And as always...
If your happy with my work. Then all I ask in return is you simply let others know about my site and programs. I help with anything computer or network related :-)
Also always feel free to make a post in the feedback forum.
And a facebook like at the top of the page of my site is nice as well. ;)
