What other program/app?

If you meant the program/app that you are trying to forward for then here are some notes about listening:

Quote

a) If you are on Windows I point you to http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/28609/how-can-i-tell-what-is-listening-on-a-tcpip-port-in-windows/

b) If you are not on Windows (Mac, Unix/Linux), go look lookup listen on port and then your OS name using Google (or your other favorite search engine).

c) If nothing is listening any TCP ports that you check with a web based port checker, then TCP ports does not show up as open.

d) Be advised that you can not have two servers listening on the same the port on the same computer. So for example before you use an inbond-client side port checker you must make sure that uTorrent is not running - which explains on http://portforward.com/softwareguides/utorrent/utorrent.htm that they say

Quote
If uTorrent is currently open, you will need to completely close it at this time. Make sure that the green uTorrent icon is not still hiding in your notification area (next to your clock). If it is, right click on it and choose "Exit". Before moving forward to things like selecting torrents, seeders, and leachers, we need to verify that your port is open. We recommend downloading our free Open Port Check Tool to test if incoming connections are being allowed through your router on your uTorrent Listening Port

e) And generally if the program/app is running that you are trying to forward for, then the server is listening.

If the program/app that you are trying to forward for is running but is not listening, it would help to know the name of the program/app that you are trying to forward for.

Why would you want to use two client side port checkers

http://portforward.com/help/portcheck.htm + http://www.pcwintech.com/simple-port-tester

???

As soon as one says open the port is not blocked by anything (ISP, NAT Router, Software Firewall). Stop the client side port checker that is listening on the port(s) that you are trying to use, get the server in the listening state and profit.. :)
