sp2 Firewall Port Range


B

Bill Benz

I need to open a range of ports(around 100) in the built in sp2 firewall.
I do not see a way to open a range of ports without manually opening each
one.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Bill

I sure don'y see a way to specify a range.
But if the 100 ports are used by a program(s),
when the program runs (starts listening),
wouldn't WFW do the pop-up and say this is being block,
continue to block, unblock, or ask me later.

Also, the program name could be added to the exception
list.

Assuming the program send something out to be responded
to.
Otherwise it would just sit and spin.

Program is on the excetion list however it will not work. It is a FTP
server and needs a range of ports to work.
Damn microsoft :-(

You could use a BAT file and the NETSH FIREWALL command

An example of this would be opening ports 20000 to 20010

@Echo OFF
FOR /L %%I IN (20000,1,20010) DO NETSH FIREWALL ADD PORTOPENING TCP %%I FTPPort%%I

To run this command from the Run dialog, use:

@Echo OFF
FOR /L %I IN (20000,1,20010) DO NETSH FIREWALL ADD PORTOPENING TCP %I FTPPort%I

Open a Command Prompt window and enter NETSH FIREWALL /? for more help on this topic. NETSH FIREWALL ADD /? for more help on the ADD command.
