All Ports Closed


I have 2 VMWare virtual machines. One Kali and one Windows 10. I tried scanning the Win10 box and all I get back is All 1000 scanned ports are filtered. I then tried setting an inbound rule in the firewall for port 80 (tried TCP and UDP) and that didn’t show up. I then turned off the firewall and still get the same response, all ports filtered. Does opening ports not involve the firewall?


You have to put some service like for port 80/443 - put Apache2 as a service and then try. Also, use the nmap scan for all ports using -p- flag to check all the ports
