Weird port forwarding problem

  GreenShadow 17:20 20 Oct 2009

I know how to port forward so that isn't the problem.

I have a Windows XP Home SP3 machine. The problem is I can't get any ports to open. I want port 6667 open but I can't seem to get any open.

I have disabled all firewalls, added port forwarding in the router, even put the computer in the DMZ but still all ports show as stealth or closed.

I have uninstalled all software firewalls, anti-virus etc but still nothing.

I have heard that even if you had software firewalls and uninstalled them your ports can still be closed. Anyone know about this?

I am using a BT Home Hub but it is configured properly, I just can't open any ports.

Any help appreciated.
