The port you need to open depends on the specific application you're using.

Go to the website of the application you're using and search their support area for port settings or firewall configuration settings.

Some applications have a user forum where you can find the answer as to what ports are required to be open.

Here's an example of the ports that would need to be open for Limewire: (this does not mean these are the ports that need to be open in your case)

In LW tools > options > advanced > firewall config. Change LW's listening port to 65000 (or try any ports in the range of 49152 - 65535) > apply > ok. If you have port forwarding set up for a modem/router, you'll need to change the port forwarded to match LW's new listening port. If you have a specific port number allowed thru a software firewall, make sure that you allow LW's new port number.

I am running vista and using the dlink di-808hv router. i have set up a pptp connection. when i use ms vpn to connect, it connects but only limited connectivity. can you help?


Peer to peer tunneling protocal is what pptp is if its connecting a limited connectivity that means some of the ports are stull being blocked thus needing for you to use your machine in a demilierized zone so this will open all avilable ports to your VPN software. Also keep in mind not all ISP's will support PPTP so you may have to use a softvpn software. Thanks i hope this helps

5200 speedstream blocks my peer to peer sites, mystic island game site, all bittorrent downloads and limewire


Hi Shepherd1880,

First thing:
The computer that you're using for these services needs to have a static IP address configured in your private network and not a DHCP address assigned by the router.

Secondly thing:
Depending on your security policies (computer firewall and/or router), you will need to sure that the settings from your router and/or your PC firewall are not blocking the ports that you need to connect for these services.

Once you know that you have this area covered, you can move forward with the necessary procedures to properly configure your Speedstream 5200 using the link below:

Firewall issue?


Yes this is possible you can turn off the fire wall or you can open up the port your down loading program uses to communicate with its peers. in the menu I believe you will find a tab for port forwarding. They may even list the program you are using. in any event here is a link on port forwarding that may help: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Actiontec/GT704-WGv2/BitTorrent.htm Subsittute your ports for the one on the web page and you should be connected in no time.

Configuring


When you say download speed, are you using a peer to peer programme, in which case you will need to open a port, or are the download speeds related to general file downloads and what speed broadband do you have?
