Red circle using Vista....


naturedude

Recommended Posts

I have the dreaded red circle, and GRC.COM's scan reports to me that my Torrent port is closed.

I have forwarded the port in my router (a ClarkConnect gateway) and turned off the firewall on my Vista PC. This changed the port from Stealth to Closed, but still no Open and still a red circle.

What else might I be doing wrong? This worked fine until fairly recently....

Too many changes in the system to look at it that way. Same ISP, same h/w except for the router. But lots of software upgrades, different router, etc etc. Router was the most suspect (went from commercial Netgear unit to a ClarkConnect gateway) but I've run some logging tools showing the port data getting through. Seems like the PC side.

I see lots of threads about Vista, but very few note solutions. Not any of the ones about a port being closed that I can find.

Be glad to collect more data...what would help? ClarkConnect 4.2 router/gateway, Windows Vista Ultimate client, small local wireless ISP. Firewall in Vista turned off, correct port (19056) forwarded in uT. UPNP turned off. Red circle on uT, and uT test shows port as closed.

I'm looking for anything that might keep a port testing as closed even though its forwarded and (apparently) not firewalled. At least it isn't a vague speed issue!

hehe indeed :D

OK well to get a better idea of your computers software would you mind downloading/running/pasting a HiJackThis log into the thread?

Diagnosing the problem in connections is rather straight-forward if not easy. You start at one end and go to the other. The first end is your ISP, the last being your computer ( well YOU @ your computer ).

It is possible another software package has a "feature" which essentially firewalls you.

Got it! Somehow the program was binding to the wrong adapter IP address. OK now, thanks!

-------------------

Yes, the "feature" is what I'm suspecting, but I'm not sure how to look for such a thing...

Here is my HijackThis log. Anything suspicious? Thanks!
