Doubt test open ports

    •  

Hello,

I am testing open ports and they are always closed. I don't know if it's my problem or I don't know how to do the test correctly. 

The software of XR500 that I have used is the beta Dumaos 3.0 104

Tests that I have done:

My configuration: both options are fail

option 1) ONT Huawei HG8240h --> XR500 --> Switch S8000 --> Computer

option 2) ONT Huawei HG8240h --> XR500 -->  Computer

XR500:  I have used NAT (OPEN), UPNP, DMZ to IP of computer, Port Forwaring (Port 8889) and Port Triggering (Port 9000).

Switch S8000:  Enable UPNP

Computer: disable Firewall

After these individual tests and all together then I enter in the page: https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ or https://www.whatsmyip.org/port-scanner/ and I test the ports 8889 and 9000 and they always appear CLOSED.

¿They should not appear open at any time? ¿Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for helping

Re: Doubt test open ports

Do you actually have an Open NAT on your gaming devices? I used the second site and did the game port test. All came back with errors but I have an Open NAT and no issues playing games online. You don't really want them open to the internet like that anyway.

Thank you Fraser,
Yes, I have open nat in my games so I think that it's rarely.
Sorry, another one question:
If I enable upnp it never appears the ports that are open.
Is it normal?
Thank you

@albert-dh I believe it is an aesthetic issue, NG should be looking into it but it does actually open ports correctly.
