I have searched the articles on this on the site and havent been able to solve my problem.

If I bypass the PIX firewall I can access uTorrent, however we need to have the PIX in place.
I also only want the PIX to allow it from one IP address.

How do I configure the PIX501 to allow uTorrent through it? I have tried creating access rules and tried different ports in uTorrent and through the PIX.

uTorrent says waiting to login and port is not open when running network setup.

Can anyone give me the definitive way to enable uTorrent through the PIX, I am happy to use any port you recommend.

The PIX is a versatile platform but you are unfortunately running to 501 which is crappy ;)  However the answer to your question will depend on the service you are getting from your ISP and how you have the PIX configured for your LAN.

How many IP address(es) do you have from the ISP?  If only one is it static or dynamic?  Hopefully it is more than one because that makes this easier.

How do you have the PIX handing traffic to your LAN is it a overloaded NAT pool I assume?

Let me know and we can move forward from there

Hi Bull,

We have 1 static IP address from the ISP, just a small company here.

How best do I answer you second question? I believe we are using NAT.

Cheers,
Ryon.

There is a DSL modem behind the PIX which has the internet connection on it so it goes, modem is set to DMZ so I dont need to port forward

DSL >> PIX >> Switch >> Network
