Torrent downloaders and Port Forwarding.

Hey,
I have a pantech usb modem for verizon wireless broadband. I am trying to get a torrent program to work. I have tried a few versions but they don't seem to connect. Do I need to open a port such as with a network? I have tried. when i enter my ip address in the address bar it tells me that it can not establish a connection. I have gone to ipchicken.com which is supposed to tell you of available ports and has worked for many but after trying several times the ports given are not open. I have taken down my firewall... nothing. I have gone to portforwarding.com but the list and guides are for routers... I have a usb broadband modem. any idea what I may need to configure?
thanks so much
Bill

    What model number of USB Broadband Modem are you using? What ISP do you have? I personally recommend using the software BitTornado to download torrents as in the settings you can specify what ports to use.

Forwarding ports


Port Forwarding is explained indeepth by the torrent companies help FAQs section,

Heres a link that may helps you too....

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4582466-set_up_speed_touch_5x6v6_broadband_modem

In the Admin function you can accept the ports if you have the correct servers address's
You must add them to your firewalls permission settings and then try the test again,

Note ,

Even with Port Forwarding set up,
you will also require the correct band width and downloader from the torrent site,
ie,
Bit Comet and Bitcomet Excelerator

The downloader and the high speed function,together.

Hope this helps,Misterdj

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.

Help with my router


You did not have this problem before because port forwarding was set on the previous router settings, or you were using a modem ( no firewall) .
Here are instruction for port forwarding
Here are more instuctions
One last thing, if your computer is powerful enough (1gb memory would be good), use Azureus, is much better.
