Homehub Port Forwarding trouble. (Terraria)

[ Edited ]

Hey everyone, yet more problems with my HH2. This time port forwarding is being very weird.

 

Im tryng to set up a terraria home server (its a video game on PC for those who don't know) and it requires TCP and UDP port 7777 to be open.

 

I followed this guide: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BTHomeHub2/Terraria.htm to try and set it up.

 

I then downloaded portforward.com's program which checks to see if your ports are open, and heres the weird thing, TCP 7777 wont connect however UDP 7777 will connect. So I tried it with port UDP and TCP ports 7776 and 7778 and in this case both the TCP and UDP ports work fine for 7778 and 7776. I've triple checked to make sure I've not mistyped but as far as Im aware its correct. Any ideas what might be causing this?

 

[EDIT] turns out my firewall is to blame, god I feel silly now :smileytongue:
