    hey guys. i think i may have a bigger problem!!!????!!! I have azureus running of a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 router. Well its a wired connection to my main PC. i have attempted to port forward, and the port number is 49690. I have allowed both the windows xp firewall and my router to let azureus use the internet and run properly. In azeureus both 'Ratio' and 'NAT OK' are green. :) BUT........... when i run the NAT/FIREWALL test i get an error. Not just any error, it says

    " Testing port 49690 ...
    NAT Error - Connection to 62.252.64.16:49690 refused."


    I mean whats the deal with that. I cant find anything on the internet relating to this problem, hence me asking you guys. Can anyone help me please!!!!

    ps/ i can still download, but i believe that it has slowed down due to the problem.

    Thanks

I have opened port 16882 TCP/UDP, i even checked it and it said its open, azureus is set to port 16882. I have the UPnP enabled on all azureus, router and firewall, ive tried and when its not enabled it wont download at all. the NAT status at the bottom of the screen is always geen and it sais ok. the health of the torrents is always green smileys. I have cable internet that i ran a speed test and it said around 3mbps down and 400kbps up. my torrent speed wont go above 10 kbps on each torrent!!!! ive been shitting bricks trying to make it speed up and i get no results. can anyone help?

    OK guys, It is really not that hard to get it done.
    First:
    Go to Windows XP Firewall in the Security Center.
    Click on Exeptions
    Add Port
    Give the Port a NAME like AZUREUS
    Type the Port RANGE like 58000
    Click on TCP
    Done

    Second:
    Go to Windows XP Firewall in the Security Center.
    Click on Exeptions
    Add Port (Since you're already in Exceptions just click on add port again)
    Give the Port a NAME like AZUREUS
    Type the Port RANGE like 58000
    Click on UDP
    Done

    Third:
    Go to your router for example 192.186.0.1, depends what router you have.
    Now, how the heck do you find out your access for your router, eh?
    Click start, run and type in the field: cmd and hit enter
    The command window will appear.
    Type: ipconfig /all
    The number after the line DEFAULT GATEWAY is the access port for your router.
    Type this number after http:// in the address bar. NO www. needed.

    There you go. You are on your router's config page.

    Go to firewall and open the same port (or port range like 58000-62000) for TCP and UDP as you did on your Windows Firewall. Done!
    After you figured out how to open the ports in the Windows Firewall, this should be a piece of cake for you!

    Now test in Azureus the port like 58000. It should come up with OK.
    There you go!

    Try disabling DHT, from The Fiend a few months back:: "In options, under connection, look at peer sources,and uncheck everything except "from a tracker", that should do it".

    Ok, I'm new and I've read through most of these postings and still can't figure why I'm still getting NAT errors. I am using XP, have turned my firewall off, have a wired Westell dsl modem, no router, have tried SEVERAL ports and still get NAT errors. Please give me some insight.
    Thanks

    It looks like Bellsouth is blocking. You could try ports over 50,000 or port 1720 but I doubt that'll help. From another forum post in October, read it through but the last line says it all : Here's another to add to the list: Bellsouth which services the Southeastern U.S. Their official position is as follows (it's a tad long, bear with them):

    There has been considerable publicity recently concerning copyright owner complaints of the wide spread problem of unlawful sharing and downloading of music and video files over the Internet. If you are copying music like Norah Jones recent Grammy's-winning CD, movies, or other copyrighted material over the Internet without the copyright owner's permission, you may be breaking the law!

    So they're going to rat us out, but after checking out the forums and running the tests, they are blocking.

    Im getting the UPnP: Mapping error too.

    Azureus was working fine until it seemed my housemates came back from abroad and began using the net again. Could it be that they are stealing all these ports from me?

    I have tried changing the port ranges but that doesn't seem to work.

    When I do a nat test in azureus it says that i have a nat error, but on the bottom, the little NAT button is green and says "reachability ok". Does this mean that I have a nat error or not?

    I may be wrong but when I first installed utorrent, I always received a red NAT error and a red connection error. The connection light would turn green after about 10 minutes but was red the next time I opened utorrent and the NAT error remained constantly red. This lasted about 2 weeks and I have seen no red lights since so I would say if your speed is decent, it may go away on ir's own.

    well, I'm getting around 10-30, never higher than 70. Does anyone know what the average speed is supposed to be? Are my speeds normal or really bad?

    There is no average speed; my speeds have varied everywhere between 300 kbps and 5 kbps, it depends on a multitude of factors: your ISP speed, number of seeds and peers, how many you're connected to, how much of the torrent you have completed in relation to other peers, whether your connection is good, etc. 70 kbps is good and 30 kbps isn't terrible although I'd like to see it higher.
