    @Redplasma12, Fing does require the use of ports for many of its tests and functions.  See this link for what it uses.  https://help.fing.com/knowledge-base/firewall-compatibility/

    So is this unusual, no and as you have UPNP on, they will be sticky once used.  Regretfully, its not giving us the port numbers so I'm running a bit blind on whether what you posted is specifically related.

    Firewall Compatibility and Required Ports: Does Fingbox work with Firewalls?

    Yes, Fingbox is compatible with firewalls. Due to the distributed and resilient design of Fing services, we recommend giving Fing app and Fingbox access to the full Internet. If you want to limit outbound connections and still ensure minimum functionality, make sure to allow Fingbox to reach any IP address on the following TCP ports: 80, 443, 4443, 5671.

    In addition, the ports needed for the Internet Speed Test, provided by M-Lab include 3001, 3002, 3003.
