hello, apparently there is a site you can use to check whether your LAN devices can connect properly through your firewall in an outwards direction.
You run a telnet command e.g. telnet x.x.x.x port# to this particular site address.
Does anyone know what it is ?
Thanks kindly.

Do you mean in an incoming direction, i.e. Port Forwarding is working?

For outgoing, you can just check with a web browser, if you can browse then your outgoing connections are fine.

For incoming, i.e. if you're trying to run a web-browser on your LAN and want to see if others can see it, this site might be useful.

It looks like I'm using an adblocker. I should consider whitelisting Geekzone in my adblocker or a subscription. The Quick Reply box will appear for me when Geekzone is whitelisted. Hooray for me! If I want to reply to this topic I should click on Compose Reply.
