If you are running a firewall - or you are running Windows XP SP2 which includes the Windows Firewall, then that port is most likely blocked.

You will need to unblock the port by going to the Control Panel -> Windows Firewall. Click on the Exceptions tab and then click on the Add Port button.

I cannot retrieve my mails or send emails, what is it


do you have an internet connection ? what email program ?

Doing a little detective work can save you a lot of extra hassle. If you're having trouble sending email from clients like Outlook, Eudora and other POP3/IMAP software, please check the following issues:


Correct Passwords


Verify that all password information is correct.

We get many requests that simply turn out to be a password error.

When cutting and pasting be sure to watch out for extra spaces.

Mail Server (SMTP) is Offline


Your server could be running and serving both POP3/IMAP but not providing SMTP service. On many systems, the program responsible for POP3/IMAP is not the same as the one for

open an email click tools accounts mail then on the right select properties you should see your email adress then click on servers you will see


POP3 should have mail. with your provider ie: mail.bigpond.com
and outgoing mail the same mail.bigpond.com




SMTP. As a result, you may be able to check mail but not send.

Try restarting your server or email service from your control panel.

ISP Blocks


An increasing number of ISP's are blocking port 25, the port used to send email.

Many of the major ISP's, including NetZero, MSN, Earthlink, AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, block port 25 in an attempt to control spam. If your ISP blocks port 25, then you will be unable to send email out of your server.


This is not a server problem but a direct block by your ISP. We can often work around these blocks by configuring your mail server to listen to additional ports.


You can test if port 25 is blocked by using a telnet client to connect to port 25.

If you connect successfully to port 25, you will see your mail server's banner.


This will list some information about your mail server.

If you cannot connect to port 25, then either your mail server is down or your ISP has block port 25.



ISP blocks are becoming an increasing problem.

Generally, once password issues have been ruled out, sending email is all or none. If the mail server is down, no one will be able to send email.


ISP blocks will only impact those clients behind that ISP's network.

Server Load Throttling

Many SMTP servers will begin to reject email if server loads are too high.

If you have root access, you may want to login and run "uptime".


This will tell you your current load averages.

Many systems stop responding to email requests if loads exceed 12 for a five-minute period.


If the load does not decline to below 4 within a few minutes, then you may have a service performance issue.

SMTP Authentication



Most email servers use one of two mechanisms to determine if a user is permitted to send email.



The first method, "POP before SMTP", requires that the user first check their email before they can send.


If a user cannot check their email, then they will not be able to send.

Try restarting your POP3/IMAP server and testing again.

The second and preferred method is called SMTP Authentication.


This method should be used if your system supports it.

Current Ensim, Plesk and cPanel servers all support SMTP AUTH.


To use this feature, the user must check configure their email client to use authentication for sending mail. In Microsoft Outlook, there is a check box called "This server requires authentication."

That box should be checked.


hope this helps

How to unblock listening port


If a port is in listening mode then it is waiting for connections so it isn't blocked. How ever having a firewall or even a NAT router in front of your computer will not allow connections. Are you trying to port forward to your computer?

Listen port in a 2 wire gateway


You need to change the listening port on your torrent application to a port that is opened on your router...or open the port that your application is listening on, on your router.
You can use this web-based port scanner tool to analyze which ports are open to your computer at this time. You will need to know your IP address.
Follow these direction to determine your IP address:
Click on the "Windows" button in the bottom left of your screen. Choose the "Run..." utility, clicking on it. Type in cmd into the run field, and press the "OK" button. This will open up a black window with white text. Now type in exactly: "ipconfig /all" you can just copy-paste what is inside of the quotes. Press enter to run the ip configuration utility. This will show a lot of text in white. If you are connecting to the internet through a wired connection (Ethernet) then find the section labeled "Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection" and write down the IP Address in this section. If you are connected to the internet wirelessly then find the section labeled "Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection" and write down the IP Address in this section.
Now browse to the web-based port scanner, here:
http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scan/
Enter in your IP address (written down earlier) in the "Host name or IPv4 address" field. Next type in the ports you wish to scan, and initiate the scan.
Now just set your torrent downloading application to listen on a port that you have found to be open through this scan, and your application will now work!

The listen port is blocked for my bitcomet program, can anyone help me to unblock this listen port?


You will have to go into Windows firewall or your anti-virus firewall settings and open the port for the program. You can assign a port number for a specific program. You may also need to open the port on your router settings if it is blocking the port needed for the software.

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!
