Kerio WinRoute 6 Firewall - Torrent Ports Question

Posted on 2006-04-02

I have installed Kerio WinRoute 6 on my server as a software firewall for inward and outward port blocking as I have a static IP. I have enabled common inward and outward ports such as vnc,rdp,www,ftp etc.
Everything else is blocked inward and outward naturally. There are rules set up for file sharing etc. which I have used, so I can use these programs and this works fine. I cannot dowload torrents though, and would like to. I think 6881-6999 tcp inward are used for torrents, but I would like to know exactly what ports inward and outward I need to open so that I can download torrents without turning my firewall into a sieve. I use bitcomet and utorrent as clients. Is there a website or a list of these ports?

    Accepted Solution

    You did the right incoming ports.

    6969 is an outgoing port that you'll need to open as well.
