how to open a port

By riverdrift ·
I downloaded a software to monitor my traffic but during the installation it's asking the ports 9090 and 9091 must be open.

My network environment like this

My local area is connected to my prosy server which is the border manger and this proxy server is connected to my router
I connect my pc(this is the pc installed with the software) with hub which is in between our lan switch and proxy.

Where exactly I need to open these two ports in proxy or in the pc with Wfilter.

Whereever it's let me know how to open these ports.

here is the specification of the software below

1. Before you install WFilter Software, please make sure you remove all other network sniffing programs or earlier version of WFilter from your computer.
2. WFilter requires a web browser to use its web interface. A browser version like IE 5.5 or higher is recommended. Using older browser may cause WFilter web interface display incorrectly.
3. WFilter software requires the running computer to open TCP port 9090 and 9091. Many firewall program prevents another program open a local port. Therefore it is recommended you shall adjust your firewall settings before installing WFilter.

Opening Port(s).

by arhiroli In reply to how to open a port

Open the TCP port 9090 and 9091 at the hardware firewall (if in use).


Open these port(s) on the ISA Proxy Server (if in use).

Open ports on any hardware that has a firewall.
If you have a firewall on you pc and router enable, then you will need to open the ports on both of them via the firewall software.
I am not sure about the proxy server as I have never got the chance to play with one but you can also check the step that the member above suggested.

Did you ever get this fixed.

Can you offer a quick review of the actual WFilter software? Does it work as advertised?
