What works when I am firewalled?


Recommended Posts


this is a pretty specific question.

I have no router ports opened, but a torrent connection has been opened out of my network

and the user is downloading a torrent. Can other clients in the Internet see this file within my

network and download it?

I can see that my Router is blocking incoming connections on port 6881, but are other people

able to download the file over the existing connection?

Thanks in advance

Everything works. The user simply can't receive incoming connections, but that doesn't preclude outgoing connections from being established. Once established, connections are full duplex -- meaning communications will go both ways -- regardless of which end of the connection was the initiating end.
