Re: Firewall

Go to 192.168.1.1 to get to your router's setup page. Enter the password. If you haven't set one it will most likely be 'admin' Look around for port forwarding, and forward port 61230. You have to check TCP or UDP or both (I forget). Make sure there are no other firewalls blocking you, like a Windows XP firewall (you can set exceptions in it). If there are several computers hooked up to your router, it would be good to set up a static IP address for each computer you want to use bittorrent on. Go to www.portforward.com and use the free guides for step by step instructions. It sounds complicated, but it is really very easy.
