Hi I have a fritz Phone, dsl router 7170 and have two PC's connected through LAN. Do I setup just as described in the help info for port frowarding for routers using azureus? does it have any effect on the other PC...? or any other settings so it all works ok? or must both PC's be setup? I have a further question also I setup as described my static IP and found the DNS servers from the fritz box settings but it still did not work and marked the router/fritz box as no supported hardware? when I setup my ports on the fritz box all is ok but....I am not sure what ports to enter...in the description it shows the first port setup using 6881 to port 6881, the second port the description says enter the settings...what ports then? 6882? if I enter 6881 it won't let me complete because the first port is setup on 6881...and then of course the same for the third port setup...what port then 6883? How many ports should one setup?
would be really grateful for help...ports are killing me too!
I have now configured Fritz box...but have entered port 6881, 6882, 6883 ....need help...! firewall outpost pro is also configured with the rules as in the instrcutions....static IP works fine...but when I do the test in azureaus it says NAT problem...is this because of 6881, 6882, 6883 in the router? could it be because of the frtz box protect? what else could it be I am at a loss.....BUT when I look at my azureus torrents it shows upload and download speeds....help!! this thing is driving me crazy!
Hi You Only need 1 Port Opened with Azureus,Pick a random port between 49152 and 65535. Then enter that port into the Incomming TCP/UDP Listen Port box. Some ISP's Block the Common Ports used By P2P Programs, ie.. 6881 6882 etc.
Thanks loads for the help...I managed to get it working, when I followed the instruction my web browser had java turned off and thus when i added the listening port it left the boxes blank when it cam to the port configuring ...
we have 2 pc's thro fritz box via lan i.e both pc's via lan and printer also...but all is ok excelletn instructions and prompt support....really impressed at the quality of service....look at all the software companies, how much they earn and look at the support you get for it!!
just one question...we keep getting firewall recording nuke attacks...nr 1 how can i get outpost pro firewall to totally block these ip's and azureus if possible? and nr 2 what is with people doing this, I still do not get the logic of trying to cause so much grief and somtimes money and being so vindictive...these guys must be real jerks and must be under the age of 16 yrs to behave like this...beats me how they get their kicks...multinational companies and banks etc I could understand but ordinary Joe's like themselves, really sucks. Should get any sort of computer removed for life when it is attack against normal people...y'all suck. What happened to the world where people helped each other, it now takes a world catastrophe for people to pull back to what I see as normal...I'm sure it does a lot more for yourself when you get the benefit and feeling you have helped someone that needed it rather than screwing any and everybody!
well that's the end of my soapbox opinion...!
thx loads and great service and help....you set a real example for how it should be.
