Re: Low ID on emule when am using Belkin F5D7230-4 router

You need to find out what port Emule uses for sharing, then enter the port number in you routers Firewall Virtual Servers menu in the settings and enable your pc's ip address to accept inbound connections.

Cant get decent speeds from u torrent


I recommend checking out

This is a great tutorial on configuring port forwarding on your particular router. This example is for emule but it will be very similar to uTorrent. You will want to determine what port uTorrent is configured to send data on and use that accordingly.

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

Low ID on eMule

One more thing re low id on emule - try to choose ports between 10000 and 60000 - many isps block the standard ports that emule users choose, and you will see people saying to choose one over 5000, but I'd chosen ports between 5000 and 10000, and still had no luck until I went over10000.
Most isps don't monitor ports over 10000, so if you still have low id problems even after port forwarding and setting up your firewall, this may be the answer to your problem! (I got this info off, and it worked for me)

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.

There are several reasons why this is happening. Most likely the reason is simply because you are behind a router or firewall and the correct ports are not open.
