• Why Do Ports Timeout

    From SETH HURST@1:123/140 to ALL on Fri May 10 06:02:14 2019
    So I'm using comcast and every port that I have checked with a port
    checker tool says its open but when I connect to my comcast ip it times
    out on the port. I'm connecting from my local network back into my
    local network through the public ip address. I'm using a netgear
    rooter.

    this sounds like your router does not do "hairpinning"...
