Unable to open port/ Port Forwarding

Have been on about a dozen phone calls with tech support. they can see the rule added to the router, but I am unable to actually open the port. Checking the port on various 3rd party sites all show that the port is still closed regardless of what the router says. Any help would be appreciated.

1) Are you running the software that should respond on port 44158 when you conduct your test?

2) Have you turned off Windows Firewall on DESKTOP-6BN15FI or otherwise configured it to allow access to 44158.

3) Have you tried using TELNET from another PC in your network to see if it can connect to port 44158 within your home network (i.e. without having to go through the router)?
