Can't open port to uTorrent

Followed advice from portforwardguide for manual forwarding, but my router's interface menu differed slightly from the one in the guide and doesn't give a virtual server menu to enter ip addresses. I have set up a static ip and obtained server addresses and just (hopefully) need to enter the info into my router.
I am receiving torrents but my status icon hardly ever goes green and
normally stays red, sometimes straying into the red.
I would be grateful for any help you can give, thanks.
My modem is a SmartAX MT882.

Virtual server also known as port forward, try to look for this phrase, if not u may also find some word with NAT or Nat table.
Anyway routers must have this function in general.

By the way, how did you make your ip static, manual from your mac or the routers'?

Upnp disabled


UPnP (Universal Plug n' Play... a feature that opens up necessary ports for PSN and gaming automatically.)
PS3 always says 'UPnP Failed' , so just diable it and opened up the ports manually.
On router Motorola SBG901 you can just follow the step and open your ports for games and other detail with snapshot is given in link
http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Motorola/SBG901/XBOX360_Call_of_Duty_-_Black_Ops.htm
Click the Advanced Link. The menu on the left should change. In this new menu, click Forwarding Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Forwarding menu.
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Forwarding page. Go ahead and enter those settings now.
When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.

I need to access a web server externally via port forwarding. i have a smcd3gnv


Do you mean that you need to access an server on your LAN from the outside world ?

The manual is on the second result of a google search for smcd3gn and the table of contents has clickable links.

The machine you run any inside server on needs a static IP address (192.168.0.11 for example) and you configure the gateway so that your outside request to address and port (http://10.10.10.1:8080) gets mapped to your inside machine's IP address and the port you are running the server on (192.168.0.11:8000) for example.

If you are only using one internal web server just map port 80 to port 80 along with the inside IP and you can omit the port number in the external URL. (If you are running more than one server you should be able to figure it out.) Remember to disable external access to the router's configuration if you do this because that also runs on port 80.

My example mapped outside port 8080 to inside port 8000 just so they would be different. Remember that one outside port can be mapped to a single inside address and port. You can run two inside machines with a service on their own port 80 but they need different ports on the WAN interface.

How to portforward port 80


You must login to the router with a web browser and try to find the port forwarding options in the menu. You must then know the ip address of the machine you want to forward it to and create a "rule" to forward all traffic from port 80 to the ip address. But beware that port 80 is used by internet browsing and you could have problems due to that.

What is the connection type for a verizon model 7500 modem? im trying to fix my u torrent stats and it asks for a connection type, 256k,128k, i have dsl highspeed so what sould i set this at?


That device is capable of working on different connection types but thats not your question. It appears your being asked by utorrent for your speed. Do a speedtest or look at your bill and find out what speed package your on OR just select 768 or greater if thats an option.

I have problem in downloading movies i Utorrent because my port is not open and i don't know the manufacturer of my DSL. Afaq DSL Shamel model 011. my speed is 2Mbbs.


you can enable the dmz of your modem to open ports. if you have an existing or 3rd party router, try opening the ports of your router by also enabling the dmz mode. also, check parental control of your modem. if there is, deactivate it. if you will be able to enable dmz and able to download movies, disable immediately the dmz for security purposes.

Cant open ports in elephant with router thomson TG585v7


You need to log on to the router using the default gateway.
Go to Start menu -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
type ipconfig
Note the default gateway
open your browser, in the address bar type in the default gateway ip address - like 192.168.1.254 --- or whatever the IP is.

That should open your router config pages... if it asks you for a user name and password... default usernames depend on your ISP usually, but try for the username Admin, admin, Administrator, administrator and for the password try the same as the username or leave blank... If you have no luck contact your ISP for logging on details.

A web page will open - go to
Toolbox
Game And Application Sharing
At top right click configure
Make sure UPnP and Extended Security are selected if you have those options
Then at the bottom
Create a New Game or Application
from there you just need to select which protocols you need to work with or select ANY
Enter the port you want opened
and add the same port number to the destination / trigger port.

That should be you. If not you need to telnet into you router
Telnet <default gateway IP>
and type Menu
The follow the previous instructions.

Forwarding from seimens 5830 how to get access


Hi,
You havent suggested what site you are wanting to forward one of your routers ports too, most people make this request for torrent download and/or gaming experience/improvement. Either way you need to know what port the software you are wanting to open a port for is currently using so you can tell your router which port to allow unchecked access.

I use this very informative support website for port resource info, click this link and choose your router type, in your case select Speedstream-5450 which will be the same setup as the 5830

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

That should take you to this page

http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Siemens/Speedstream-5450/Speedstream-5450index.htm

Then select the software you are wanting to open the port for.IE: Utorrent or world of warcraft Etc... That will then open a detailed walkthrough on setting up rules for your routers port activity. You will need to follow the guide for each port you open, if the guide is not listed for the exact software you are using just read through the one supplied for Utorrent and change the port numbers to the ones you are using.
The software you are using should show you what port is in use at the time you are using it, some software may use a different port everytime you open the software or allow you to allocate a port permanently (which is not recommended safe internet practice especially if your ISP supplies your connection via a STATIC IP address, most use a DHCP allocated IP address)
Failing that you can find the port currently in use information using the command prompt- for winXP and Vista type c:/netstat-b for win2000 type c:/netstat-p Look for the software you are using it will be on the left hand side and look something like [Utorrent.exe] follow the line of info too the right and look for the 4-5 digit port number.

Wheeeew, Good Luck :0)
