I've been using for a long time and I've always found that portforward is not a trivial task for a new user. Here is some info for users who don't know about portforwarding
, sometimes referred to as port mapping, is the act of forwarding a network port from one network node to another.
Basically, when you dealing with P2P application it allows user to talk to you. With Porforwarding enable more users can connect to you thus giving you more speed. Ok now lets get down to business shall we
1) Open this youtube tutorial
I've learned all of the stuff here so If you get confused somewhere you can always refer to this
2) Run uTorrent, Click options and then speed guide.
Remember the current port number here
3) Click "Test if port is forwarded correctly"
If it is running fine you should get this
Otherwise you will get this
4)How to fix this? Click on windows start>cmd and then type ipconfig
You should see your IP and Default getway here. Remember these two.
5) Type the default IP of the default getway in your browser
The username and password are both admin. Basically, you're going to configure your router.
6)Go to Advanced Setup > Nat
8) Now click add. Here we are going to set ports for uTorrent. uTorrent is not the list provided to write the name manually. Also for the IP type in your machine Ip. You can cehck this from the ipconfig. Now enter the port you saw in the uTorrent Speed Guide. Enter the port number in External and Internal ports. They are the same for both Start and End. For protocol select TCP/UDP since uTorrent supports both of them. Once entered click finish
9) If you have everything accordingly then you're portforward is complete. Go to uTorrent>preference>Speed Guide and click on test forward again to see whether it is working correctly or not.
