    There are several variables to consider!
    What anti-virus program are you using?

    What brand is your router?

    Without knowing your set up it's impossible to even begin to answer your issue.

    And WHY would you need to know the ports. I assume your device isn't being recognized by your computer??
    If that's the case, and your Wi-Fi router isn't recognizing your device, you need to go into your routers homepage and set up a "PIN" and use the same PIN on your device so the network will see it. If you have Blue Tooth on your computer then it's just a matter of Pairing the two. If it asks for a pairing code it's "0000"

    And then there's the old fashion way.... use a cable between your device and the PC!

    If your using Windows Firewall you might try:
    TCP 5580-5590, 8080, 4487-4499 but that still involves setting it up in your router.

    Determining ports on your router for BBLink shouldn't be necessary but if you're thinking of Port Forwarding, it's static and has limitations.
    You'd be better off setting up Port Triggering.

    It's way to complicated for me to get into here. But, I've given you enough for you to investigate further on your own.

    I'm using Windows 8.1 with Norton 360 and a Netgear AC1750 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router.
    Everything is found automatically. I recall having to open a port through my Norton Firewall and all that was required was to add the name and location of the software "EXE file.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    Forgot the most obvious thing. Assuming your computer isn't seeing your device over wi-fi....
    and your PIN is the same on your device as it is on the router, simply unplug your router and the modem for about 30 seconds, then plug in the router, then the modem, do the hokie Pokie and turn yourself around,

    and that's what it's all about!

    If I'm (most likely) not hitting on "why" you wanted the port info, then

    Hi Thanks for the help. I just need the port so I can open them on my Linux firewall that controls the incoming and outgoing traffic on my network.
