firewall hell!

I'm trying to open a port on my Windows 7, with Macafee Internet Security Suite... i've opened it on my Router (it's port 8866). I've opened it on Macafee and I can't get it to open. the log tells me that accessing that port is blocked and that i can unblock it. I HAVE and still won't open. I've disabled all firewalls on my PC and the port still won't open... Where else must i open this port???

Re: firewall hell!

If settings aren't working then I would contact Technical Support.  It''s free of charge by phone or online chat and linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.

I would add that port 8866 is often used by malware so it could be locked on purpose although I doubt that.
