Not using a router but getting the yellow exclamation mark symbol


Recommended Posts


I am using Utorrent 1.8.1 currently.

I am getting the yellow icon (permanently) with the exclamation mark "indicating a problem with my network configuration".

From what ive read, i understand this means your port isnt forwarded correctly.

However i am not using a router - just an ethernet

I am also using ZoneAlarm free firewall - if this is the problem how do i get it to not limit the connection - when it was first installed i let it "Allow" Utorrent from accessing internet and acting as a server so i dont understand what else i need to do.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Means there probably IS an unforwarded router...you just don't know where it's at!

If UPnP or NAT-PMP doesn't auto-forward it, you're probably permanently firewalled.

Zone Alarm is a very bad software firewall. uTorrent will probably not work correctly with it, due to its very weak packet-handling abilities.

Microsoft's Windows Firewall sadly is better.
