Are you sure your computer's static LAN ip address is outside the router's DHCP range?

Otherwise, that particular router probably won't forward properly.

BOTH of these are KNOWN to cause µTorrent problems:

Kaspersky Internet Security


Do searches for other posts here on them to find any workarounds, as I have neither. :(

Um. Since when has KIS been known to cause problems? What I wonder, though, is why you're using NOD32 along with KIS, especially considering the fact that Kaspersky's AV engine is better than NOD32's. And yeah, NOD32 has been known to be problematic (at least its IMON component has).

I use Process Explorer, HijackThis!, and TCP view...they've found hostiles both AV and antispyware software has missed. You can't trust your AV and antispyware to know about zero-day viruses and hostiles...but the diagnostic programs often can find 'new' things without problems. It's just up to you to determine if the new stuff is good or bad.

when I install the Torrent 1.6.1 and make a Test for if port is forward properly the massege display as

Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.

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

Checking port 27547 on

Error! Port 27547 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).

and I don't have any idea how to solve the problem please help.
