Hello my geeky friends that always have the right answer the first time i ask it =) <3

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. :tazz:

is the private torrent deal on the internal network? if so it shouldn't require going through the router at all...if not...(not sure on this for sure..so going on theory) can you not enable port forwarding for a full subnet?

ok....well there's two things here...now that i understand exactly what you're talking about....

#1...your ISP is correct...if you want a static ip from them you will have to pay for the static ip....as it's not so much your router that needs the static ip...but your modem....which in turn would allow your router to have a static ip.....

#2...we unfortunately have an anti P2P policy here at geeks to go so we can no longer offer you assistance in this matter...if you have issues with this policy please contact an admin or a moderator
