BT HomeHub 4 - Port Forwarding.

I need to open up ports 80, 8068 on my Home Hub 4, I have followed the port forwarding instructions but it will still not open them.

 

I have opened up ports 9000, 85, & 18004 in the same way and this has worked?

 

Any advice?

 

Cheers.

I also can't seem to be able to open the port 12345. Help?

Re: BT HomeHub 4 - Port Forwarding.

Traffic will only be allowed back in on port 80 from a source if your device has already sent traffic to that source, because port 80 is used pretty much everywhere for http traffic and leaving it fully open would be just asking for trouble - it's pretty much a given that one of a limited number of browsers is sat at the end of it.  I'm assuming that 8068 is similarly restricted.

I have the same problem. 443 is open but port 80 is not, according to open port check tools. Please explain how to ' be allowed back in on port 80 from a source if your device has already sent traffic'.

 

Where on the HH4 menus can I fix this.
