      Opening ports - weird

      Hello, I'm no stranger to port forwarding, and for the past few days, since setting up broadband, my transmission torrent clients incoming port has been open, as requested on my sagem router.

      I turned my mac off last night, and for some reason the port is closed.
      I've tried opening the port again, and even selected ALL ports open, and not a thing.

      When i use canyouseeme etc, it can't find the port.
      transmission shows the port is closed, however sky settings tell me that the ports are open.
      So confused.

      When you restarted your PC its IP address might have changed. Try checking if your computer's IP address (192.168.x.x) still matches the firewall rule you created on the router. If not you'll need to change it.
