Static Addresses...

I'm trying to set up Azurius but this is an area of pc's that I'm a little inept at. I know that I need to set up a static IP address...but apparantly I don't know how. My system specs follow...any ideas? It's been a while sine I've attempted to download through bit torrent. I finally installed Azureus after a friend suggested it. While I'm setting it up it wants to test the "incoming TCP Listen Port" which it has set to: 54854. when I test it I get a message that says: "Testing port 54854 ... NAT Error" Where do I find other ports to test? I've checked:

http://azureus.aelitis.com/wiki/index.php/NAT_problem

But, I'm still a little confused. My 2Wire modem is model 1100. I'm not clear on how to exactly create a new static address and there are numerous options on my router...I can set the "default" static address, etc - but I can't seem to access the internet when I do (I've tried rebooting the router and the pc...but, ultimately, I have to revert back the the address that starts with "192." which is part of the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

does anybody have any ideas?
April 18, 2006 10:42:00 AM

To set up a static IP address first look at your router settings and note which IP address range and subnet mask it is using - also look at the DHCP settings on the router because you need to set an IP address that is outside the DHCP range eg
Router IP 192.168.0.1 (subnet 255.255.255.0)
DHCP range 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.10 (subnet 255.255.255.0) then you can pick a static IP of 192.168.0.11 (subnet 255.255.255.0)
If the DHCP range is 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254 well that is all the addresses for the 192.168.0 network and so you will have to reduce the range to free up some IP addresses for static allocation.

Now that you have a potential static address go to the network properties of your LAN card - select TCP/IP and Properties - select the Use the following IP address and enter your chosen address. Press the Tab key and XP will fill in the correct subnet mask for you. Enter the router IP address for default gateway. OK your way out and restart the PC.
Now try your Azureus.
If you still have no success then please type ipconfig/all at a command prompt and post the results.

Static addresses are really not your issue, it sounds like the port is blocked.
Ports are completely different than your IP address. Ports are simply numbers assigned for traffic for a specific application. To my understanding bandwidth (the amount of information that can go through your internet connection, Download and Upload speeds) is not split up by port.

Besides the obvious windows firewall there are built-in firewalls on the routers and DSL or Cable modems. I suggest talking to a friend that knows how to configure routers. You need to look at the firewall settings.

If all else fails try using a different BT client like bittornado and see if that works.

P.S. Don't include all that system info. All you really need is the "System Information" section. (The DirectX stuff is really useless)

Are you paying for a Static IP? Most are dynamic unless you are a business or something that can pay for one. You can't just generate one with hardware, you ISP has to sell it to you.
April 20, 2006 10:01:35 PM

I'm pretty sure he means internally, so your comment would be irrelivant, hawkstar has it down perfectly, do what he says. You will probably still need to open the ports, but that's easy, let us know what router you have or is the modem a router too?
