Ports are supposed to be forwarded on your router to your Kali IP.

Look for "NAT" on your router settings.

I forwaded kali linux ip to my router but still kali linux port are closed can u give me steps

you need to use the port in order to test if it's open or not. if you're trying to check port 4444 for example, open it in the router, open netcat by typing nc -vlp 4444, go to and check if 4444 is open. if so, it will give you a green color, and netcat will establish a connection

I forwaded my port in virtual server to the kali ifconfig and created a listner nc -lvp and checked wheater it is litning or not but still result are negative ports are closed
