i have an issue that i am not educated well on and the tech support at my host is less then willing to spend time to show me how to do this.
I have netgear rp614v2 router. By default my ip sets up a dynamic ip address for everyone on their system. I have a private torrent site that requires a static ip and the torrent client i am using requires a port that is not blacklisted which involves me forwarding a otherwise non forwarded port. I go into my netgear config via explorer and try to forward the port 54793
i have set up remote management temporarily to help you see what i have done exactly
to connect its http://192.168.0.1 username: admin password: password for the gateway log in. once in there if you click on portforwarding on the bottom left side of page it will show you that i forwarded the port 54793. But my ip is still dynamic. My host wants to charge me to get a static ip but he also told me you can always config ur router to have a static ip *which i am assuming that is what i need to do* but have had less than an easy time accomplishing* I checked out the tutorial at portforwarding.com and perhaps didnt follow the directions properly but I came up shorthanded. If anyone is able to help me with this i will contact you right as soon as i receive an email saying someone has reponded to this post.
