  1. Has anyone else had issues allowing inbound ports with Windows Firewall?


    I've been prototyping an OpenVPN setup and noticed that I have been unable to connect to it unless I turn Windows Firewall off.

    When I open the Advanced Windows Firewall settings I can add the needed ports to the outbound connections but when I add them to inbound they disappear once I close the window. I've attempted this with two different Windows 10 PC's and I'm seeing the same behavior in both.

    Has anyone else noticed this problem?

    Firewall no longer allowing "Allowed" program on Inbound Rule

    Using Windows 10 and trying to allow a program to access my computer remotely through a specified port.

    This used to work by allowing it in the firewall settings and turning on both public and private firewalls.

    Now I have to turn off the public firewall to allow it to access my computer remotely even though it is in the inbound rules list with :

    Profile: Private, Public

    Enabled: Yes

    Action: Allow:

    Program: [path to program]

    Everything else : any

    This allowing used to work but now it doesn't.

  3. Windows firewall: e-mail is on, yet inbound port 143 (imap) is blocked

    Hi Cacadril,

    We appreciate you for being a part of Windows 10.

    Before proceeding, we need more information to help you better.


    • Are the computer connected to domain network?

    • Which are the email accounts you are working on? Is it Outlook.com/Office Outlook/other email accounts?
    Until you get back to us with required information, I suggest you to refer to the suggestions.

    Windows Firewall filters information coming into your PC from the Internet, blocking potentially harmful programs. Follow the below steps to access the interface and rules.


    • Open the start menu, type firewall in the search box and select
      Windows Firewall.

    • Click on Advanced settings on the left navigation pane.

    • Enter the admin credentials if any dialog box prompted.

    • In advanced settings panel, you may change the settings related to Inbound rules/Outbound rules/connection security rules/monitoring.
    Note: If your PC is connected to network, you might not be able to change your Windows Firewall settings because of network policies. Contact your administrator for more information.

    Kindly let us know the required information if you need any further assistance with the issue. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Windows Firewall blocking program even with inbound/outbound rule enabled.

    Windows firewall is like a fart when you have squirty dumplings, you shouldn't really trust it.


    Disable the private network firewall, if the application works fine do this.

    Open a CMD prompt window with admin rights. type in "netstat" without the quotes and press enter. You should get a list of what IP and port is connecting to what port and or service. Open those ports for the application, or just allow those ports to be unfiltered.
