How do I un-block a port?

  [DELETED] 06:29 21 Feb 2006

I want to download files from Azureus, but the new router/external firewall I hooked up, a Linksys Router, prevents my client from opening port 6881.

I tried to look for something relevant to unblocking that port, but I found nothing.

My filters are set to default, that is, there are zero ports being privately filtered.

Still, I can't seem to use Azureus, or BitTorrent itself.


Mapping 'UDP tracker client port (UDP/6881)' failed
Mapping 'Incoming Peer Data Port (TCP/6881)' failed

I tried those instructions featured in the website.

I still get those tracker and peer data errors, I can download, but it downloads really slow, no higher than 10 kb/s

Also I changed the ports to 49153 and opened the port range from 49153 to 49153. Still the same problem.

You should open a range of ports such as 6881 to 6889. Also do you use a software firewall such as zone alarm, if so you must also open the ports in this.
