Hey experts,

My machine runs on a windows xp SP2 OS n I’m a first timer in using the bittrorrent software and I need to know how to configure the necessary areas (like the software itself, my adsl router, the firewall n so on) so that it can download n upload files….I just got an idea of these jargon…port-forwarding, seeders, leeches……..but not sure how to configure to allow the ports required by bittorrent in the router settings n the firewall I use…..

The router and the firewall I use……..

Router is USR ADSL 4-PORT ROUTER
Firewall is Kerio personal firewall 4

so please guide me step by step on how to do the needful in the router n the firewall……or suggest if there r free software available which can do the settings by itself…….thanking you…..

You can find a simple walkthrough for opening ports on the the SunBelt Kerio Firewall here:
http://www.portforward.com/english/softwarefw/SunbeltKerioPersonalFirewall/SunbeltKerioPersonalFirewallindex.htm
I reccomend the "Eazy Method" if you are able.
The site also has walkthroughs for some USR routers. The wordings in the router interface are different between models, so look for yours in the list at http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm

Basically, you tell Kerio what program you want to allow Internet access on the Network Security tab. Select the program and give it Internet IN AND OUT access, but not Trusted access.
The USR routers will have settings for "Virtual Servers" or "Forwarding Rules", or something similar. That will be where you tell it what port to open, and for what pc.
Often, you will want to set your pc for a static LAN ip (192.168.1.xxx), just to make forwarding easier, although some routers will track your pc's LAN ip automatically. You can set that in the Properties of your connection in the Network Connections applet in Control Panel.
