There's a difference between being open and being forwarded.
The port is not "closed" or "blocked".. It's "open" and not "forwardable" through user settings.

NTP works for everyone on here and it's UDP port 123.

You shouldn't need to port forward UDP 123.

The Vodafone box uses NTP to sync time - so do Windows and Linux PCs and all kinds of other devices.

If it wasn't functioning correctly, there would be literally thousands of posts about it.

Wonder why portforward.com uses ports123 forwarded. Google search did show good amount posting at differrent places. I did check all the ports listing to verify yet from manufacture .... I saw few listed 133 etc so when I saw portforward.com listed figure 123 is needed

If the MFGR requires port:123 then users need to revolt. It would be like restricting port:80, 22, 23, 8080, and the 4-5 other "main" ports that are common.
