How to turn off the router's firewall

Hi
I am trying to connect to programs like emule, and it says that the firewall is on. I am turning the Norton's firewall off, but still get the same result. I understand that it may be the router's firewall... How do I turn that off?
My router is Compex Netpassage 18A.
Thanks a lot!
Yaron

How to turn off firewall in windows 7 and let norton firewall work


  1. Open Windows Firewall by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Security, and then clicking Windows Firewall.

  2. Click Turn Windows Firewall on or off. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  3. Click Off (not recommended), and then click OK



    Make certain that your Norton Firewall is on before you turn off windows firewall (or shortly after) Turning off Windows Firewall might make your computer (and your network, if you have one) more vulnerable to damage from worms or hackers.



    Hope this helps!

Firewall


You may find out that Norton is causing the block and not the firewall. To disable the Windows firewall do the following:


1) Click on Start then control panel
2) Click on Windows Firewall
3) Click on the Exceptions tab and see if Windows Live is listed and checked.
4) If not, click add program and add Windows Live

If it is there and checked then you can disable the firewall by clicking on the General tab and selecting Off from the firewall screen.
4) Finally, click OK

If none of this works then try turning off Norton. If that lets you log in then you will need to add Windows Live as an exception to Norton.

Good luck

I cannot open ports TCP/UDP for eMule using router 2Wire Infinitu


You need to portforward your router to accept emules port number/numbers. Go to portforward.com. look up your router and follow the instructions. It's pretty easy.

No internet connection through routers (broadband AND wireless)


Try to disable any firewalls on your computer. If you already have internet details showing, there's something blocking your connection which is possibly a firewall. Turn off the Windows firewall as well as Norton, Mcafe, Zone Alarm and the like if you have one.

Belkin Wireless Router F5D82314 worked fine for a year, now will not allow desktop or laptop to go to links from homepage


Hi!

Can you describe your setup in a little more detail, please? What OS's are on your computers, what firewall and Anti-virus programs are on the computers, and especially did you change anything else at about the same time that this problem started?

The easiest way to determine if a firewall is the problem is to turn the firewall completely off and see if the problem goes away. If it does, you then know that you need to configure that firewall so that it will work properly in your environment. If I were to venture a guess (which could be totally wrong), a firewall on your computers (like one that is installed as part of a Norton/Symantec program, for example, even if the program isn't labeled as a firewall) is in conflict with the router's firewall.

Please let me know if this helps and good luck!

Emule lowid


I am sorry, but I would not listen to advice that you need to disable your Firewall for it to work!?!

Obviously as the response shows, even with the Firewall disabled it did not work [and would be vulnerable to attack]

There are two possibilities off hand:
  1. You have not taken into account forwarding ports in your Router as well as Software Firewall [if applies to you]
  2. Your ISP may be aware of using the ed2k protocol and try to stop you from using eMule
Remember to use the OBFUSCATION option.
This option in eMule allows you to connect to a server in a way
that masks or 'hides' the ed2k (eMule) protocol

Go To Options > Security

Here you'll tick the "Enable Protocol Obfuscation" box

Remember to only tick the first box under "Protocol Obfuscation"

You should be able to see your 'hidden' status on the right side
of the server window in eMule

If your ISP was in fact interfering, this should help you gain back your ability to use eMule without restriction

Configure for emule


You must open ports on your router to allow incoming traffic while using eMule. eMule uses three ports*: 4662 (TCP) 4672 (UDP) 4711 (TCP) Visit eMule here. * To prevent getting a low ID (Firewalled), open additional TCP ports between 4661 and 4665. Also, limit the number of connections in the eMule software. You may need to change the TCP Clientport to something other than 4662.
