      Help -Ports

      Ok well I finally got my Sky Broadband installed this morning, and ever since then I have tried and tried without success to sort out a port for utorrent.

      However I seem to be going around in circles, and it is giving me a head ache.

      Now I have read stuff about a web server, and I have no idea what that is!

      I was on Virgin Media before, and I set up a port for uttorent with ease, now though I am really really confused.

      So if anyone can please please help me, it would be much appreciated!

      right Lostgfbc,

      i have set up uterrent on my v1 router, also, run utorrent, go into connection settings, and note the port number it is using, say 1720 for example, whish is the utorrent defualt port.

      In your router services setting, add a name 'Utorrent', select either tcp, udp, or udp/tcp, then type in say 1700 minimum, 1750 maximum, now go to firewall settings in main menu, click add, then select always, then type the ip address of your router(to check ip address go to attached devices option on main router menu) type what you see, into firewall settings, ok that.

      Oh yes switch UPNP off for this too happen, then try download a torrent, and you should get a green triangle instead of a yellow one. See if it works.

      Well I couldn't find the settings like you said.

      I think though, I made a mistake, I don't have the white router as I googled the router name that I put and its not that one, I have the other one.

      How do I see which one I have?
