Ports 53 and 8883 are open

Distinguished Professor IV

Could you elaborate? 

I went into port triggering insert 53 to 53 and 8883 to 8883 on the ports to enable them, 

Question is this where you enable the ports to be open?

What are you trying to do? Why do you need to open these ports?

Port 53 is used for DNS and it almost seems as if you are tryng to set up a server that may be accessible from outside your home.


If that's the case, please understand that Residential installations cannot be accessed from outside your local LAN because the satellite network is protected behind a double-NAT. Only Business installations may be accessed this way.


Disregard if you're merely trying to set something up that's accessed within your local LAN.
