Can't Open Port


Recommended Posts


I have a 3Com DSL Modem + Router.

The Model No. 3CRWDR200A-75.

Im in saudi arabia and my ISP is Cyberia.net.sa

I have a 256 Kbits/sec DSL Connection and my download and upload speed are as follows when tested using the speedtests.net website

Download Speed : 61 kb/s

Upload Speed : 97 kb/s

When i did that test my utorrent was closed and only one browser was open and i was testing the speed.

The icon in my UTorrent is green with a circle but when i click on test if my port is forwarding properly i get the following message

Checking port 42056 on

Error! Port 42056 does not appear to be open

I added port 42056 in my Router's Firewall's setting and did everything as stated in the forum.

I selected xx/96k in Connection Type:

I assigned a static IP Address of to my LAN connection and manually inputed the DNS and i made sure my LAN IP Address is not in the DHCP's range in my DSL modem's setting.

I chose the range from -

This is the setting i entered manually in my LAN's Properties


Subnet Mask:

MY Primary DNS :

My Seconday DNS:

I have windows XP service pack 2 and i use NOD32 version 3.0.621.0

I went into NOD32's Web settings as well and excluded Utorrent.

I have two Issues, Issue no.1 is that my port is not being forwarded and issue no.2 is the speed i get in my Utorrent is maximum 6 Kb/s

a week ago my port was forwarding and i was getting speeds of upto 25 - 30 Kbp/s in Utorrent and when i downloading anything from internet using right-click and save as option i got speeds of upto 30 Kbps.

I dont know what's wrong here

Can my ISP be the problem.

hoping to find some help here,thanks

Well here we have like DSL internet scratch cards that you buy each month.

Last month i was using a different ISP and this month i switched to a different ISP to check its performance, so i guess that could be it, maybe this current ISP has some policy to monitor traffic and block or bottleneck it when a user downloads continuously.

And yes you are right here all the internet traffic is monitored and the porn sites are blocked and a person can get around that either using a proxy based website or some sort of software.

anyway thanks for your help, i appreciate it.

have a nice day.
