I am trying to set up uTorrent on a computer with a freshly installed XP Pro SP3. The problem is that I have been unable to get the port forwarding working correctly.
I set the computer up to use a static IP. I then went into the control panel for my Linksys WRT54g v2.2 router running firmware v4.21.1. On the Port Range Forward page, I entered the port number that uTorrent is set to use, left protocol set to "both," entered the static IP of the computer, and checked Enable.
But no matter how many times I recheck and tweak those settings, uTorrent continues to report that the port is not open. I disabled Windows Firewall just to make sure it was not blocking the port. I also set up uTorrent on a different computer running Vista, but had the same problems. Therefore, I am fairly sure the issue is with the router.
