Opening ports in Windows Firewall

Before setting up Windows Firewall, make sure you have administrator rights.

  1. To go to Firewall settings, click Start, open the Control Panel, then click Windows Firewall (or press Win + R, type firewall.cpl, and click ОК. This method works for all Windows versions and will suit those users who don't have the Start button in their version of Windows.)
  2. Click Advanced Settings.
  3. In the left column, click Inbound Rules.
  4. In the right column, click New Rule.
  5. In the pop-up window, select the Port rule and click Next.
  6. Select the required protocol: TCP or UDP.
  7. In the Specific local ports field, enter the required ports. If there are several ports, separate them with a comma or specify the port range using a dash. The list of required ports for World of Warships can be found here. After you have entered all ports, click Next.
  8. Select Allow the connection and click Next.
  9. Select the desired connection profiles and click Next.
  10. Specify the name of the created rule and add a description, if necessary. Then click Finish to save the changes.
  11. Similarly, create Outbound Rules by specifying the same port ranges as described in steps 4–10.
