If your router is a Linksys WRT54G, you can look at an instruction manual for the unit here.

To "reboot" the router, all you need to do is turn it off and turn it back on. Since there is no power switch on the unit, this is just done by unplugging it, waiting a few seconds, and plugging it back in again.

My x-box tells me to open port to connect, i cant get it to work. bungie net tells me to open port 802.11 n not b or g . i cant make it work,x-box tells me my nat is not open. please help. thanks ...


The Linksys router, like any other router, will block "unsolicited" traffic from the Internet coming "into" the router (for "forwarding" to your computer that is "behind" the router).

So, you need to access the web-server "inside" the router, from a computer that is "behind" the router, and you need to modify the "blocking" of the router's "firewall", to "allow" (instead of "block") traffic from the Internet to a specific port-number.

You'll also need to "forward" that port-number to a specific computer "behind" the router.
Compare to a secretary that receives telephone-calls for several managers in the office.
When somebody calls the office, the secretary may look at the caller-ID, and may choose
to *NOT* pickup the telephone, i.e., to "block" the incoming call. Thus, none of the telephones
on the desks of the managers will ring -- they will not receive any notification that the secretary
has "blocked" the call. Or, the secretary may recognize the caller-ID as being that of the spouse of one of the managers, and may just "forward" that incoming call to the correct manager.
The secretary needs to know which of the telephones is associated with the spouse of the caller, so that the "correct" person responds to the incoming call.
The secretary is doing the 'NAT' ("Network Address Translation") to correctly do the "forwarding".

Similarly, the router needs to be configured to do the 'NAT' correctly.

Firewall and NAT router configuration/Router problem????


set a port forwarding on your router.

the port you open on port forwarding is the port you are going to use on your bitcommet

Listenning port bit comet


BitComet requires you to be able to receive incoming connections. If you're behind a NAT router but don't have port forwarding configured properly, incoming connections will be stopped by your router (won't get to your computer).You need to configure port forwarding, so your router knows that the incoming connections are for BitComet and will be allowed through (= forwarded) to your computer.

There are several versions of your router:
DSL-2640B, DSL-2640Bv2,...
Go here, scroll (almost all the way down) and find your router model.
On the next page, skip the advertisement (upper right corner) and look for BitComet.
Simply follow the instructions on that page - they are precise and correct.

In general: You can use ANY port, but I would prefer a listen port between 49152 and 65534 because they're classed as "Dynamic and/or Private Ports" by IANA, so nothing else should be using them by default and they're not the standard ones blocked by ISP's or trackers, but - as I said - you can enter any other port you wish.

If you have any more questions, just come back and let me know - I'm happy to help.

Good luck & thanks for rating!

DL-524 send mail


Hi,

Are normal network services available to you:-

1) can you ping a server on the Internet?
2) can you browse the Internet?
3) Is the problem only email, if so do you know which mail server you are trying to access?

You shouldnt need to open up any rules in the firewall for SMTP, unless you are hosting a mail server. When you request mail from behind the firewall, most firewalls allow through all traffic from the inside network to the Internet. therefore, if you can see the Internet this is usually a good indication that theres no internal filtering.

all your mail client does is create a connection to port 25 on the SMTP server. You can replicate this by doing :-

telnet <MAIL SERVER ADDRESS> 25

you should get a banner or something up if you can see it. I dont think its a router problem if all other services are woking ok. If you get a banner from the above command, then its definately not a router problem.

ta,

and likely within your pc firewall if you have one.
What router do you have ?
What Firewall software are you running ?
