      Block all inbound is the default.

      If you want to allow inbound from a connection you haven't initiated then just add a new rule and place it above the default.

      have you tried pushing the little reset button at the back of the router with a pen? this will restore factory defaults

      Well as long as the correct port forwarding is set up for your torrent client (and associated service rule) and this is sitting above the default block all inbound, it's not the router firewall which is causing this.

      Sure you've set up port forwarding properly? Does your client let you test it?

      The easiest way to check would be if your torrent client had a check port open feature - you haven't said what client you use.

      A more complicated way would be to run your client then browse to a site that allows port testing such as grc.com and use a tool to test the port that you have set up for the torrent client. If it is set up properly then the port will show as open.

      If that's too involved or difficult then here are some instructions for utorrent which you should be able to adapt for your current client. Or switch to utorrent, it's an excellent client (and has a test port function).

      Checked all that & it's as it should be, using utorrent.

      Getting nothing up or down now on any D/L

      Would it be worth it to change the incoming port on uttorent or wouldn't that make any difference ?

      Thanks again for all your help

      I have checked the port forwarding option on uttorent & it says the port is closed although i followed the step by step guide on here ?

      Any ideas...........

      Thanks again

      The three most likely causes are:
      • you are not forwarding to the right IP (fixed IP or address reservation)
      • you have another rule which is preventing the connection (move the utorrent rule to the top)
      • there's some other application (e.g. firewall) on your PC which is blocking this


      A fourth possibility is that you've chosen a port which Sky have blocked so changing to a random port between 50000 and 60000 might help.

      If not of the above fix things then it may be best to remove the service and firewall rules and address reservation/fixed IP (whichever you've used) and start again using the instructions link I gave in an earlier post.

      PS I notice you're on Mid now? How did the migration go?
