      Additional Port Problems - Help Appreciated

      HI folks

      I have scoured the site, but cannot really see what I'm looking for. Either than or I am a complete dufus.

      I am connected to my Sky Sagem router with the ethernet cable. I created a service to allow utorrent access to a port and happily continue torrenting unfirewalled.

      However, as only a recent convert to a laptop, utorrent is always firewalled on the laptop. I created another service for utorrent using a different port, but port forwarding check shows as unable to connect. I can connect to some seeds, but certainly not to firewalled ones. How can I sort this out?

      Thanks in advance for your patience!

      Many thanks Joss - the one thing I missed, was checking "attached devices" and adding the extra digit to the IP address. Many thanks to you for pointing me to the video, and to NewsreadeR for taking the time to make and post it.

      Cheers!
