Firewall rules don't seem to apply

Hello,

So i need to setup a rule to allow specific ports for port forwarding (PF) to run a game server.

I tried making it directly under the program that would use it and separately as port.

Also tried on a different PC and made it work, difference being no norton smart firewall.

Norton auto created rule for the program and it is on Allow all.

Did a reset Firewall and a reinstall of Norton.

Cheers.

Re: Firewall rules don't seem to apply

Did the firewall reset and Norton reinstall help?

If you are creating custom firewall rules, you may need to move your rule up above the existing rules so it gets acted on first.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Mm, i tried both reset and reinstall but to no luck.

Yes, after i created custom rule i moved it above all others but it would not work. Even tried adding rule directly under program and trying various order..

I'll try reinstalling Norton few more times and if it fails i'll reinstall program.

Will post update.

Cheers.

Re: Firewall rules don't seem to apply

When you look at firewall rule that Norton Created, did you set the port number you need. See if the images in this post help with setting a specific port(s).

Ah so after 3rd reinstall its working and i didn't even need to add or change the preset rule Norton makes, i'm not really sure what happened...

And yes to answer your question i even tried giving specific port. Kinda confused since it should have worked from start, but at least its working now.

Tnx for help. Cheers
