How can I forward ports?

phishphan4244

I am having problems using my bit torrent client (Bit tornado). I recently installed Kaspersky 7.0.0.125 on my computer and since then I am unable to dowload bit torrent files properly. I get messages that my ports are not forwarded. I have a router but since I live in Korea, I have been unable to find it on the Internet to explain how to forward ports. The router is a broadband Ip router; it is MAST MT-TR 7000. I'm wondering if anyone can help me with port forwarding?

Are you running Kaspersky -- KAV (Anti-Virus) or KIS (Anti-Virus, Firewall, Etc)? If the latter, you might also need to allow your software firewall to allow access to the bittorrent application and the ports it needs.

It seems that the router's manufacturer has either moved or closed up business as their original website is no longer available. I was, however, able to find this document about setting up the router for setting a PC in its DMZ (i.e. PC fully exposed to outside world).

This is almost exactly what I was looking for (would have preferred ports forwarded instead of DMZ).  I don't know how you tracked down the info but kudos to you!
