How to disable port 445 TCP on my AX1500 router
I WFH a lot at the moment, and one day I noticed I had gotten an email from my employers IT support saying they had cut me out of all connections (Outlook and Teams excluded) due to the following issue:
''The below notification is due to your device currently being a target of credential bruteforce.
It appears that your home network with public IP (REDACTED) has port forwarded 445 TCP and is available on the internet.''
In order to get back to being able to use my home internet I must disable port 445 TCP on my routers side. However I can't seem to find any settings that would allow me to do so.
I read somewhere in this forum that port 445 is closed by default. That doesn't seem to be the case (at least with this router) so please don't mention that.
