Hi

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 Satellite Internet, this is probably the case. You can try and resolve this by contacting your ISP and negotiating a price for them to unblock the port for you.

Please remember to give this solution a FixYa! rating.

Kind regards

How can I download purchased items on itunes (error 8003) from behind a Cisco RV220w firewall?


Configure the Cisco to "log everything", and then try the iTunes download. Then, examine the log-files, to see which connections were blocked. Then, configure the firewall to "allow" those TCP-ports.

How do I telnet to a device behind a firewall


The normal way. Unless the firewall is configured to block telnet to or from your source or destination. In which case you need to create a rule on your firewall to permit your TCP port 23 traffic.

We have an SBS2011 behind a Sonic TZ-100. A router with DHCP enabled is connected to WAN of TZ-100. We need to block DHCP in the TZ-100, as the SBS shuts down his DHCP when it finds the DHCP on the router....


So I can understand better... You are trying to move DHCP off of your Small Business Server and on to a router that is connected to your firewalls WAN? I don't understand why you are trying to block the connection between your router and your server. Once you turn off DHCP on your server and remove the static IP on it, it should get a new address from your router.

Question: I have a sonicwall CDP 1440i. Does it hold a firewall for my server as well serve as a back up device? or do I need an additional external firewall to support the windows operating system?


It will act as a firewall for essentially anything that is "behind" it. As long as your server and PC are connected to it (or a switch/hub that is connected to it) it will act as the firewall.

You don't need anything additional to support your windows machine.

I need to add an ip range to my sonicwall tz 170


This is not directly possible to do with a TZ170 as the device will only allow configuration for 1 static or dynamic IP at a time for the WAN port.

However this being the case, I suggest setting the SonicWALL up as a perimeter firewall and place devices that require the other public IPs form the additional IP range behind the TZ170. Basically the SonicWALL becomes the gateway for the other IPs needed as long as the range of the IP block is contiguous.

This would involve using the 4 ports of the LAN on the back of the TZ170 to connect directly to the other devices or if it is more then 4 devices, using a switch connected to the LAN side of the SonicWALL to provide connectivity to the multiple devices behind it. Most TZ170 are licensed for 10 connections on the LAN side and if you require more then 10, additional licenses will need to be purchased.

I would be careful pushing too much traffic through a TZ170 as it is designed for Small Business use and will quickly become overloaded with too much traffic causing high latency/traffic bottlenecks and in extreme cases connections being dropped. This is especially true for multiple VPNs.
