behind a network firewall and need to find open ports for bittorrent client

By blackj3015 ·
I'm staying at halls of residence and they've got network firewalls so most ports I've tried to use with my bit-torrent client come off as blocked and unavailable and I thought I'd ask and see if anyone knows of a way to locate any open ports that I can use or if anyone knows of ports that windows is already using that I can use since I'm not able to open them up myself.
Many thanks in advance!

Talk to the admin that runs the firewall

by jdclyde In reply to behind a network firewall ...

If what you want is an acceptable use of the network, they will set you up with what you need.

If it is NOT an acceptable use of the network, then you have no business doing it and will get no help here getting around the security that is validly in place.

I am sure you are mature enough to understand how things like this work, and if you approach the admin, they are often very easy to work with.

you can't

by douglasemc In reply to behind a network firewall ...

the ports are closed for a reason, i'm thinking the same reason why i have closed them on my network, if you don't have access to the firewall itself you can't open them from your computer...
but if you do:
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any host (your computer's public IP) eq 8767 (or any other port)

access-list outside_access_in permit udp any host (your computer's public IP) eq 8767 (or any other port)

static (inside,outside) tcp interface 8767 (your computer's private ip) 8767 netmask 255.255.255.255 65535 200
static (inside,outside) udp interface 8767(your computer's private ip) 8767 netmask 255.255.255.255 65535 200

by unvmy98z In reply to behind a network firewall ...

This will atleast tell you what ports are being used (or are open)...

siw.exe google it, and download it. you will see a ports option... next to talking to the Network admin thats about the best you can do...
