Check open ports router


At one time or another we have all been forced to open a port on your router (port forwarding): improving the download speed in emule, enable remote connection to vnc, ssh access ...

And when it does not work there is always the same question: are you really open the port? How to check which ports are open?

This is where this article: how to check port status easily.

The solution we propose is independent of the operating system so it can be used by both pro Linux users and by those who are "forced" to use the "small window" of Redmond.

Also we will not have to install any software on our team because we will use a website that helps us work: WhatsMyIP.

Among the options included is the ability to scan the ports used by games and common applications (including P2P) option but personally I find it more comfortable is to enter the port number you want to check at the entrance to Port Custom Test and after clicking the Check Port check if the port is actually open I'm setting in my firewall.

It is very intuitive to use because if the port is open tell us putting green background to highlight everything's OK in a quick and easy
