    Default Which port to forward for ktorrent?

    Hi guys. I just can' figure it out...which ports should I forward on the router in order to make ktorrent work. I thougt it is just the default 6881, but obviously that is not enough. Thanks for your help.

    Make sure it is 6881 TCP and UDP, and you may want to add 4444 UDP for the tracker. Else it should work. Are you sure your provider doesn't restrict filesharing ports?

    There is also an option to encrypt the traffic to fool your provider. On my work Vista pc so can't give you an exact description

    Alternatively, if your router supports uPnP and it's enabled. Then just enable the uPnP plugin in kTorrent and the two will take care of opening the needed ports themselves.

    Thanks for all your replies, but unfortunately I still can't make it work I added both ports 6881(tcp) and 4444(udp) in nat translations in router pointing to my machines ip, but still no luck. Then I added the mentioned ports in allowed ports in suse firewall, and even tried to shutdown the firewall for a while but sill I see "Invalid Response" status in ktorrent in all torrent downloads. While Azureus works ok without problems and without any nat translations, the only reason I would like to try ktorrent is that azureus takes too much of my pc's resurces(especially ram). So I would really like to get ktorrent working. Any other idea maybe
