Hello, I have a device connected to my TalkTalk router (black one from Huawei) that needs TCP ports 44158 enabled in both directions.
I have enabled port forwarding for this port and also put a static IP for the device to make sure it always get the same IP but it doesn't work.
I've also tried to disable the firewall in the router but still doesn't work.
Do you know if TalkTalk blocks port on their side too?

There are several people having issues with this port, but I have proved it is nothing to do with the router, it forwards this port perfectly.
However, if you want help, you cannot use someone else's thread. This has been pointed out on this thread before with another customer.
To get help, you must start your own thread. To create your own thread, go to the main page for the board in question & click the "Start a topic" button.
TalkTalk insists on one thread per problem per customer. Please note, TalkTalk makes the rules, not me.

The forwarding settings are OK.If I were you Id reinstate the hub's firewall and take the devices out of the DMZ. You don't say what kind of device needs this port open, but if it's a PC or running via a PC etc, the only other thing I can think of is an exception needs to be added to the PC firewall. Does it show up as an Online Device in the "User Device Information" page ?

This query arises a lot. TalkTalk don't block ports, although some hubs restrict certain external ports to hopefully prevent unsecured devices from being hacked. For the Huawei DG8041W they are 22, 23, 53, 80 and 443. (they can be accessed via URL or port redirection)
Port 44158 is unrestricted and available. If you can provide a screenshot of your port forwarding settings we may be able to help.
