Downloading music from utorrent.com - port is blocked

I dunno if this question is within your remit but its to do with routers and firewalls and I'm desperate. can't download from utorrent. worked well previously. not used for a few weeks. in that time we've downloaded free virus protection software, in addition to virgin's, which we pay for. phoned u torrent helpling in usa. said it could be new virus protection software or router could have been reconfigured by ISP. its not been reconfigured by us, except that we did last night fit a netgear wireless router to transport broadband into another room. I've turned that off now in order to eliminate that as the problem. The problem remains. which is that downloading from u torrent is taking several hours for one track and at the end it says its failed. on checking the port it says the port is blocked and to check on a given website that peerguardian2 or protowall is allowing utorrent.com 72.20.34.145.

so i have that info. and i have the portforwarding website. then i have no idea what to do. i've gone to their 'common ports' page. but i don't know what i'm looking for. i've searched for peerguardian2, protowall, virgin (our ISP) and belkin (our router). none on there. looking for the wrong thing. I;ve done the same on their 'you might want to look at our ports for firewalling page'. same thing. don't know what i'm looking for and kind none of the 4 names above. on one page or another there is a big list of belkin serial nos. should i tick the correct one of these?

help! can't download any music and we are paying a subscription.

there is no other problem in using broadband or the router. we can access the internet fine.

thanks. ahalliwell7@yahoo.com

    Is Utorrent allowed through your host computer firewall? Other than that use the internal config within utorrent to test the ports are open and functioning

Need find out how portforward can you tell me how udp and tcp ports open


Here is the solution to help you out to do the port forwarding as you wished sir..


2wire-gateway-1921681254-300x234.png Once you have accessed your default gateway screen for your router, you will then want to click on the firewall tab at the top of the screen. After the firewall summary screen opens, you will then click on the firewall settings tabs to begin setting up an open port on your 2wire dsl router.
2wire-firewall-300x234.png Once the firewall setting screen opens you can then add an open port to your specific pc. Under step 2 you will see a list of predefined applications that have already been created for certain video games, servers and telephony (VoIP) services. Since in my example we are opening a port for Utorrent, we are going to manually configure port forwarding for one of my pc's. To be opening a port for Utorrent, click on "add new user-defined application" you can find the link just below the list on the left side of the screen.
2wire-edit-firewall-settings-300x234.png Once you click on add new user-defined application, you should have a window that resembles the one below. Within this window you should now be able to enter a name for the application that you are opening a port for. Underneath the application name, you know have the choice of either tcp or udp, and then you would enter a port number or a port range that you want to open up.
2wire-add-user-definition-300x234.png For security reasons, you should only open one port, unless the application specifies otherwise. The more ports that you have open on you router, the more doorways you open for hackers and viruses to enter your home network. Since we are opening a port for Utorrent, you are going to want to click on the tcp box and then enter the port number that Utorrent gives you, in my example I am opening up port number 51225. After you have entered you port number, click the add definition button. Once you have added the definition, you are going to then click on the back button.
2wire-utorrent-open-tcp-port-300x234.png After you have clicked the back button, you should now be at the edit firewall settings screen. All you have to do now is select your computer from the list that is listed After you have selected the computer that Utorrent will be hosted on, all you have to do is find the recently created user defined definition from the list under number 2. After you have located the Utorrent port forwarding application simply click on the add button, which should assign the Utorrent port forwarding application to your computer. After you have completed the above steps, you should be all set; now your Utorrent program should download and upload at a faster speed.


I have used Uttorent as an Example for you to have an idea how to do the work.. if you still have any problems or question just send a message i will get to you as soon as possible..

If you like the answer and it helped you please like the answer, it will be a great help.. Thanks

Ensure that the router firewall is not blocking the http port 80.

Have you configured the router to open your utorrent port?

Have you set up specific strict rules?

Iv got a BT home hub 2 cant get conections for utorrent even though opened firewalls


There are ISPs that block utorrent. I found this explanation of how to do port forwarding on the BT home hub, though: http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/BT/BTHomeHub/Utorrent.htm
So, all I can suggest is to open the ports on your home hub as suggested above and to connect your computer straight to your home hub rather than to your CWR-854 (unless you actually have no such router and just picked that to ask the question under).
It is possible that someone has decided that you should not use torrents (they slow down everyone because they actually have the nerve to use the internet) and they are associated with thieves. Not to mention that there are tons of legit uses for them,
This could be someone in your ISP or your house. So do you have access to everything? You can poke around with telnet - can you access the ports on the other systems that utorrent accesses to make itself part of the network of systems that are downloading and sharing the torrent?
But if one knows the ports it is easy to block torrent.
If you have multiple routers that do nat, the home hub has to forward to your router, not to your system. So if your router is 192.168.3.12 and your system is 192.168.5.6, the BT home hub has to forward to the port on your router, on 192.168.3.12 , and your router has to forward to your system on 192.168.5.6. If the home hub tries to forward directly to your system (if you have multiple routers, which you might have because of the way you asked your question) then it won't work since your router hides 192.168.5.6.

How can I block *all* torrents traffic with a Cisco 5540 ASA firewall. It consuming too much bandwidth


Hi there,

Well you can use the torrent software to not allowing more bandwidth, just open the torrent software (utorrent, bittorrent etc....) right click on the downloading file then goto the bandwidth allocation menu and select low bandwidth, just do this with all of the downloading things......

Good Luck!!

Problem opening port for utorrent with DGL 4300 router


You must set static IP on your computer where the utorrent is installed. Make sure no firewalls are enabled on your computer like windows firewall or any other firewall like norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. You should forward the port on separate protocol. Go to portforward.com for more information on how to forward port for utorrent

Hangs with Bittorrent


That is because you need to open a port on router with the same number assigned to your torrent client.

You need to check port number on bittorrent configuration, then access router control panel typing router IP on internet explorer address bar and configure the router to open the port.

Read the following articles.

Weird problem. IE works, but other internet-using programs don't


The firewall is turned on on you router and can be disabled by changing the firewall settings on your router. utorrent and online games have to use ports for incomming and outgoing data transfer and should be listed as exceptions on your router. go into utorrent options and check what port is being used and do the same for your brothers game if you want to keep the rest of the ports blocked from potential attacks.

Network connection?


Log into your router. You should have a manual on accessing it. Find a selection called port forwarding. What your going to do it set port 6881 to be forwarded to your computer to get your IP address by going into /Start/Run/ type cmd.

Once the prompt is open type ipconfig /all and retrieve your IP address. once that port is forwarded to your computer you should be good to go.
