What is Port Check ?

Port Checker is a simple and free online tool for checking open ports on your computer/device, often useful in testing port forwarding settings on a router. For instance, if you're facing connection issues with a program (email, IM client etc) then it may be possible that the port required by the application is getting blocked by your router's firewall or your ISP. In such cases, this tool might help you in diagnosing any problem with firewall setup. You could also find this useful for security purpose, in case you're not sure whether a particular port is open or closed. If you host and play games like Minecraft, use this checker to make sure the server port(25565) is configured properly for port forwarding, then only your friends will be able to connect to your server.

Router Port Forwarding

The public IP address of your home or office is usually the IP address of your router. If you run any service such as Email Server (port 25), FTP Server (21) or Web Server (80 or 443), you will need to setup port forwarding on your router to forward corresponding port from the router to the internal local IP address of the PC that runs the service.
