Hi guys,

I have got the methods to open a port in Windows 8 firewall as following, hope all these will do you a favor:


Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.

Click Allow a program through Windows Firewall. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Click Add port.

In the Name box, type a name that will help you remember what the port is used for.

In the Port number box, type the port number.

Click TCP or UDP, depending on the protocol.

To change scope for the port, click Change scope, and then click the option that you want to use. ("Scope" refers to the set of computers that can use this port opening.)
