Thread: how do I forwarding port in ktorrent

  1. #1

    Default how do I forwarding port in ktorrent

    I have ktorrent installed and I am using a Cisco wrt54gl router , I have no problems when I am using windows portforwarding but I am not sure whats going on in Opensuse.
    I used whereis ifconfig to find ifconfig and then I /sbin/ifconfig which gave me my internal ip. I then forwarded the port using that ip but it seems that the port isn't actually forwarded according to the Revolution torrent site

    you need to add the port/s you are using tcp and or udp in the firewall.

    Yast - Security - Firewall
    Allowed Services - Advanced
    add the port number in the relevant place
    finish

    configure your router

    OK thanks for that. You probably missed something in the configuration for a fixed OP. A fixed IP generally/often needs you to additionally configure in the I.P. address of your gateway and the I.P> addresses of the Name Servers provided by your ISP.

    Take a look at this: HowTo Configure a network card in Suse/openSUSE 10, 11 for LAN and Internet Access.

    I went over those instructions and even tried them but the result is the same, I lose my connection to the internet. I know that it is something that I am doing but I just cannot figure it out what it is... the only thing that I cannot do is Activate/check "Change /etc/resolv.conf manually" for some reason it is grayed out

    The OP said:
    Cisco wrt54gl router
    I agree with swerdna, you must be missing something. All you have to do is open the ports in the firewall. And the same in your router.
    I supplied a link to help with router because we don't know the setup of ALL router, and that link should give you a step by step guide.
    In my router it is in a section 'Firewall Rules' and 'Services'

    'Services': Is where you add the service name (ktorrent) and port number and whether tcp/udp or both

    'Firewall Rules': Here you add the service you just set up in services (ktorrent) and assign rules. For me it's ALLOW ALWAYS with my IP address on the LAN!!! (Make sure you are adding the LAN IP not your Internet IP)
    All rules must come before any default rules in each section In and Out
