Port 80 not opening
« on: August 11, 2009, 09:54:35 PM »
I am opening ports 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3658, 5223 on a Linksys BEFW11S4 for my PS3.  Simple Port Tester shows all ports open, except for port 80.  I've used a second port tester program and it shows protocol TCP closed and UDP open for port 80 (all others ports open, as well).  Any help will be much appreciated.

Port 80 is normally blocked by ISP's, they don't want people hosting websites on their internet connections. Don't worry, you normally don't need port 80 or 443 in port forwarding, those are more for firewalls to make sure you allow them through.

You should be fine, if run into any trouble just let me know.
