Open Port Causes Updates To Fail

Hello. I have specific ports forwarded on my routert so that I can play a certain game. However, when they are open, all the bitdefenders running on computers on the network can no longer update, until the ports are closed. Why does a port opened on the router specifically for my computer effect all the other bitdefenders on the network as a security issue, and thus prevents updates? And how can I solve this problem? Thanks.


  • Hello,

    What port you forwarded ? Can you post the rules added on the router ? What type of router are you using and what is your Internet connection type ? Last but not least please also post details about your PC and the BitDefender product you are using.
