Hello!

Here is a guide on how to setting up port forward on DSL 500T for uTorrent:
http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DSL-500T/Utorrent.htm

If you can't reach the router as described in the link above, than you need to contact whoever provided you with this router. If the router was provided by your ISP (internet service provider) than contact them directly asking how to access your router.

Hope this helps!

How to block torrent download in sonicwall tz190


BitTorrent is a torrent downloading client used to download
music, video and game files for free.

BitTorrent can really eat up bandwidth, which can be mighty
frustrating, especially if you're sharing a computer and an Internet connection
with someone who's using BitTorrent.

If he's not willing to stop using BitTorrent, there are a
few steps you can take to block this demanding program.



Switch your Internet service to an Internet service provider (ISP) that is
hostile to BitTorrent. RCN, for example, is known to block BitTorrent traffic.

Try blocking all ports from 6881 to 6999 on your system.

You must first add a port before you can block it. Click
"Control Panel" and then "Network and Internet
Connections."

Click "Firewall Settings," and select the
"Exceptions" tab.


Click the "Add Ports" button. Enter the port
number you want to block, and click "OK" to save your changes.

Navigate to the "General" tab in the "Windows
Firewall" section, and remove the check mark from the port you just
created.

That port is now blocked and cannot be used by BitTorrent.


Unfortunately, performing this procedure 118 times is
somewhat time consuming, but it is one of the few ways known to block
BitTorrent.




If someone is using BitTorrent on your computer, don't
allow him access to it.

If he's using BitTorrent on his own computer, you may have
to buy your own machine to avoid conflict.

If the Internet is slow on your computer because
he's downloading via BitTorrent on his own machine, consider using a public
Wi-Fi point such as a library or coffeehouse.

Limewire firewall


Hi amy_maguires

If you have recently got a new router, there would be a firewall on the router blocking the required ports for LimeWire to operate. To get around this, refer to your Router's user manual and find out how to access it and then unblock those certain ports. PLEASE NOTE: Do not attempt to unblock all the ports as this will increase the risk of getting your router and perhaps your computers infected with viruses.

If that is not your problem, you may be using and ISP (Internet Service Provider) that has blocked those ports as downloading music uses a lot of bandwidth which is a burden on them. If you have Satelite Internet, this is probably the case. You can try and resolve this by contacting your ISP and negotiating a price for them to unplock the port for you.

Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.

Happy Easter

I cannot use utoorent to download


By using the proxy gateway you havce not cracked the forti guard, you just found a loophole, that is different from cracking or hacking the system.

You can use freely the Internet and bypass proxyguard by using freegate proxy, but you wont be able to use a torrent fileshare , as this needs opening a port directly on the server, and you do not have access to server.

I have done daministration on a system protected By Bess system, and I can assure you there is noway to access to the gateway and change permissions if you are not an administrator.

I suggest using a different bit torrent application.

Utorrent is a very good one. For best results with torrents. Set ur ip to the DMZ in the router

I can explain further, once I understand whats actually going on.

Hai


Port forwarding only applies when you have a router.
You're on a PC with a direct link to internet.
So... there must be a software firewall, like the one in windows? disable it.
Try again...
I'm not familiar with nokia 5310... does it create a lan connection? or is just like some other regular modem?!
maybe your operator is blocking that kind of traffic.

Firewall/ports


Hello there, you only need to open a port for utorrent, if you use a Router device for sharing your internet connection to more than 1 computer. If you do indeed own a router then you will need to log-in to it, via your web browser and change the necessary settings to forward the port that utorrent uses, to your local computers address.

Please write again if you need more support.

Hope this helps.
