Port Forwarding

by dman_1092 In reply to Need Help Here!

Sounds like you need to open the ports on the router. This varies depending on the router. Usually you type or to get into the router config page. In there you should see applications and gaming or port forwarding.Enter a name and enter the port # that the program uses. You will also need to set this by IP so you will need to know the IP of the computer. Go to a command prompt and type ipconfig to get the IP address. You may also need to open the port or add the program to any firewalls that you are using. This should open the ports so you can download. Hope this helps.

If your buddy is using some "mission critical software that uses those same ports, you may not want to try and use them with that program also. I use bit torrent to dl torrents, and in bit torrent is an option to change the ports that it uses. Try going into azureaus (cant spell that one right), and seeing if there is an option to change the ports that it uses. If there is not, I suggest trying bit torrent (from the same .com site). It is a great low weight client that gets torrents fast and good. Also it uses bit torrent dna to accelerate torrents, and I noticed that upon installing this new version (I had an old one also), btdna automatically configured all of my port forwarding settings.

Good Luck
