portforwarding problems


Recommended Posts

Hi I am having problems trying to open a port to forward.

I have a netgear wgt624 router and I set the portforward with the PF program

here is the error I get

Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.

A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.

Checking port 48610 on

Error! Port 48610 does not appear to be open.

Please see www.portforward.com for more information about how to map a port.

Please make absolutely sure that PeerGuardian2 or Protowall is allowing utorrent.com ( in either of those programs. Those of you using ipfilter.dat should make sure the list does not include the website's IP. After making sure of this, re-run this test by refreshing the page (F5).

Thanks for the response I have and did set up the portforwarding and the static ip address

I used the port forwrding program (PF) and i recheck the NETGEAR instruction on line to ensure I did it correctly lI double check that the static ip is working using ipconfig /all

I use pc cillian for my fire wall and I added utorrent in the exdception list to alllow thru

any more suggestion I would really like to use this service but the last time I down loaded a 350 mb file it took 11.5 hours not good

Please help
