Hello, I added port 27015 to Windows Advance FIrewall In/outbound TCP and UDP on Windows Server 08 R2. I restarted the server, and the port is still blocked. I dont have any program that would be blocking the port. What could be causing the issue?

Did you maybe use the wrong syntax? Server 2003 and 2008 use different commands.

Server 2003

netsh firewall add portopening TCP 27015 “Open Port 27015”
netsh firewall add portopening UDP 27015 “Open Port 27015”
netsh firewall set opmode ENABLE

Server 2008

netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”Open Port 27015” dir=in action=allow protocol=TCP localport=27015
netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=”Open Port 27015” dir=in action=allow protocol=UDP localport=27015
Netsh advfirewall set currentprofile state on

I don't believe you have to reboot for it to take effect either. netsh commands usually take effect immediately.

With Digip examples, you should be able to add those ports to the firewall.

If you follow them correctly, it should work without any issues.

Also what type of service are you trying to run?

Thanks Digip!!! Now I wonder if it was a firewall port issue or something else.
