NAT problem with WIFI hotspot connection


Recommended Posts

I am connected trough wifi hotspot. No fee, good speed, but no admin accessible ;-) Forwarding test (uTorrent 1.6) shows that only forwarded ports are 21, 22, 23, and 80. As I don't run any of the first three services (FTP, SSH, telnet) on my PC, I decided to set uTorrent to listen at port 21 (FTP). Despite the forwarding test says OK, the client keeps showing "no incomming connections".

So here is my question: why this setting doesn't work? I think that FTP and HTML ports are forwarded allmost everywhere so many users would be able to solve the NAT problem quite easily this way. It is a bad practice, of course, but who cares ...
