FIREWALL

i recently uploaded 3 torrents and no one can download because it says my port is unconnectable... and it says FIREWALLED under my dl/ul stats in the little box... however, i have my firewall disabled and i made sure that i disabled it BEFORE i launched bittorrent. AND it says that i am uploading previously-downloaded torrents, so obviously something's getting through...

what's the problem????

Re: FIREWALL

Do you have a router? Did you also forward your ports through your router (portforward.com)? Your router (and some modems) can act as a firewall also, so you need to tell it to allow you to get through for certain ports.

(Also, being firewalled simply means you may not 'talk' to others who are firewalled. You can still 'talk' to others who are NOT firewalled, which is why some torrents are going and others aren't.)

Re: FIREWALL

Get the model number of your modem and go to portforward.com . Hit the Forwarding Link in the top bar, find your model number, and then you tell it what application you want to forward the ports for (look up your bittorrent client) and then it should have instructions.

If you are still having problems, you need to give us more information (your modem model number, what bt client you use, what OS, whether you use and antivirus application, etc.)
