Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

Hi, I'm on a Windows XP home, using a Seimens SpeedStream 6520, using Bit Tornado, as far as anti-viris stuff I use Online Armor for a firewall, Spyware Terminator, AntiVir, Spybot, the usual....
I have followed the guide to a 'T' from the port forwarding site, including getting a static IP, site seen here....
http://www.portforward.com/english/r...BitTornado.htm

The Bell Canada version is slightly different, but not much, the important stuff is the same....
When doing all the steps I was on the phone with Bell as well (my ISP provider) and at the end I get the following error seen below.....

I set the protocall to TCB just like the page says, my ISP couldnt figure out why it doesnt work as well....
I have tried this with my firewall off too....
Any suggestions? I have been trying to figure out this port thing for a day and a half and Im ready to snap, lol....

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

you set a static IP on your workstation - good.
you opened 10000 - 10010 on the router (i know some progs that use that port)
(consider to 50000-50010 - imo)

if Armor Online has disabled your windows firewall - trust the torrent prog and/or open the ports within Armor Online.

test it here: http://www.canyouseeme.org/

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

Hmmm, tried that link and got this-

Error: I could not see your service on 64.229.156.8 on port (10000)
Reason: Connection refused

trouble is, 64.229.156.8 isnt EVEN CLOSE to my IP address.....

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

thats your 'outside address' (true address on the internet)

turn off your firewall software and test again.
get it out of the equation - that way you're only working with the router/workstation config.

once that tests out ok - then enable the Armor online & work that out.

should be good then.

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

Completly removed Online Armor, problem is still there, still FIREWALLED, I will try adjusting to 50000-50010 like you suggested....
I just added it along with the 10000 already there, still get the error message I linked in my first post....

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

well then its your router.. focus there.

*any port from internet* > 50000-50010 > *your internal static IP address*

first time is the hardest time.

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

Well, I'm sure not getting any help from my ISP, the last one I talked to barely spoke english, and I got a speech about how they arent trained to tackle port problems, I'm gonna try calling again in a bit and hope I can find someone who knows what they are doing.....

Great, got another lecture how they dont support 'port' problems, I dont know what else I can do, except pull my hair out in frustration....

You have the exact same problem? Did you go through all the same steps as myself?

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

I'm trying something new and I'm downloading a file with UTorrent, I did a port test and it seems OK, after this is finished, will the window stay open and will I seed?
This program doesnt have the black/red/green light thing that bit tornado had, also will clicking on a link I already have downloaded from automatically just seed when it see's the file has already been downloaded?
The file I'm downloading now I already have but it didnt seem to notice that....

Re: Firewalled!-Port Forwarding Isn't Helping

Alright, I seem to have found a way around this problem, while browsing through torrent threads around the net I read that 'UTorrent' uses different ports, and that you dont have to release them, after getting rid of Bit Tornado and installing UTorrent I am now able to upload again without port problems....(Whew!)
Thanx for trying to help direwolf....
