    I want to access this site:

    It states the network administrator must open port 8013, but how?:confused:

    If you're connected to the network directly (through a modem), you may just need to add a new rule to System Prefrences > Sharing > Firewall that lets that port through (or turn the Firewall off temporarily just to see whether that's the problem).

    If you're connecting via a router you may need to also configure the router's firewall and port forwarding settings to allow that traffic through to your Mac.

    What part of the site are you trying to access? - it loads fine for me without that port open..

    And that will vary from router to router. It may be listed as "virtual server" in your router's configuration pages.

    Hi, go to:

    "System Preferences"



    on the right hand side click on "New"

    now click on "port name" and at the bottom of the list you will see "other" click on this and name it

    under that you will have the option to enter the port numbers.

    I hope this helps.
