ok i am using DC++ for file sharing over the internet.

now i have a home network set up like so

my computer<----->dads computer running firewall<------>cable modem



now for DC++ to be able to be used to its full potential, the people say that i must port map/ port foward a UDP and a TCP port from dads computer to my computer.


he is using kerio firewall (the free version) and this doesn't have a port fowarding feature on it.

we are both running Windows XP home, and i was told not to use the built in windows router/firewall software.


i am curious if there is a program or anything that will forward/map ports to my machine that can be run at the same time as kerio. or that is a new firewall in tis own right.

the requirement is that its free software, or free for non comercial use.

or is there a way to do this in the comand lines in XP :S

thanks for any help

dude... When you on YOUR computer not your dads... You will have to Dial Into the Router... linksys? it's like 192.168.1.1 something like that, anyway, go to Advanced, and then go to Fowarding.. and type in the port and then BOTH and then just specify YOUR internal IP not your WAN IP.... so this will allow the ports to be opend on your computer.......and that should work, I use DC++ and i just have it setup in Passive, i have no problems getting anything i need, and believe me i download around 5-10gbs a day! :)

oh i forgot to mention, if you don't wanna use the PASSIVE... then click on ACTIVE IP on dc++ and then for port im pretty sure its 1412... i used both setups for awhile, i personally didn't feel any difference... oh and make sure you follow what i wrote about and forward port 1412...

ok thanks for the preply.


first thing is i don't have a hardware router, unless the cable modem (motorola) is a router :S

second thing is i live in NZ, we have about 2000 active DC++ users and we get charged for international bandwidth at 10x the national rate.

so i only download from New Zealand only hubs (if that makes sense, coz it costs 10x less to do it that way/ i get 10x more)

as for the port fowarding i was wanting to know a software program for windows that might be able to do it. i can try seting it up on the cable modem if that does it but its not connected to my computer its connected to dads computer which has a hub card that i connect to. so really i think my fathers computer is the router, (but without software)

anyway thanks for the help on that one.


oh p.s. since i am only downlaoding within my country going active will open me up to about 2-3 times the users i can possibly download from
