Unhappy Newbie help for port forwarding on speedtouch router for using Bittorent !!!

Hi !

I'm new to using Bittorent and like alot of newbies my d/l speeds suck

After browsing this forum I've figured out that I need to forward ports on my speedtouch 510 router.

I have been able to access my router's web-interface but i have the following few questions :

1. In order to forward a port i need to know the following values :

Inside IP ?
Inside Port ?

Outside IP ?
Outside Port ?

2. Do I need to forward ports 6881-6999 only ? What about port 6969 ?

3. I am on Windows XP. Do I need to open ports in the Windows XP firewall too ?
If so, to forward a port I need to know that following values :

IP address of computer hosting the Bittorent service ?
External Port Number for this service ?
Internal Port Number for this service ?


All advice will be well appreciated !!!!

Thanx in advance guys

ONLY forward ports 6881-6999

The inside IP is the 192.168 IP of your machine.
I don't know what the outside IP should be.

Port 6969 is only for trackers, and is not for all trackers. (I run ones on nonstandard ports)

If you have a router, the Windows XP firewall is completely useless, as the router is absorbing ALL the traffic that the firewall would normally block. Disable that firewall.

The port numbers are the same for both inside and outside.

Because you have a router, you should completely take down your Windows XP firewall.

Thanx once again man for great advice !

I've removed the Win XP firewall as you suggested but still unable to forward the ports in my router.

Does anyone know the difference between Inside IP and Outside IP ??

I know that Inside IP is my IP Address but what shall I enter for Outside IP ??

Most routers don't require you to tell them what their outside IP is, because they already know it. (or they couldn't work.)

You can find it by going to http://whatismyip.com/
