How to block all incoming traffics thru a specific port?

    Hi guys,

    How do I go about blocking all INCOMING traffics thru a single port? In this case the port is 12200. I don't want to block a specific ip address, because there are so many of them. I searched the forum, but only found ip address blocking. Please help.

    Access Restriction / All Day Every Day / Normal Access Restriction / All computers/Devices / TCP / Src or Dst Port - 12200

    I think that should work. Give it a try!

    Thanks Toastman for your reply, but I'm looking for scripts that I can put in my router's firewall. I only want to block incoming traffic to my router on port 12200. Lately there are a lot of incoming traffics originated from China poking on port 12200. I could block whole range of ip on any port, but not on one particular port. I don't want to do this, because the list is getting long and I don't want to block good traffics on different ports on that range of ip addresses. What I need is a script that will block incoming traffics from any ip address on port 12200, but won't block traffics on other ports.

    Erm...well, by default, if you aren't forwarding port 12200, it is blocked...default policy is DROP.

    Umm, access restriction is simply a gui for creating said script. Anyway if stuffs coming in then something on the lan initiated it. Perhaps spyware/botnet? Opendns is quite good at blocking know ones, which sadly means very few.

    This got nothing to do with spywares and botnet. My computers did not initiated anything.

    So you have enabled logging of _blocked_ inbound requests or did you do something else?

    And as rhester said: it's already getting blocked; nothing more you can do about it.

    Didn't know it blocked by default. Guess I don't have to do anything further. Thanks for your replies.

    @ vanhh
    Out of curiosity - how did you figure out incoming traffic was trying to go into port 12200?
