Hi folks, I've got a bit of a predicament here.

I'm trying to open port 59 on my router, which is a 2Wire 2701HGV-E.

Well... basically, I set it as this but my firewall puts the port at 194. And yes, a port scan reveals that port 59 is closed. So, does anyone know what I can do to fix this issue 'cos I'm afraid it might cause other port issues for me in the future?

(Yes, I erased some of the other details in the pictures.)

PortForward.com gives you specific instructions to open the ports based on the router you have and the application you are trying to use. I love this site, I'm sure you will too!

(Mods: that's not spam, right?)

I have tried portforward.com and followed their instructions for my precise router and program. It does not work no matter what I do. I gave up.
