I've been using Azureus to try to bittorrent some files. The problem is, it tells me to open port 6881, I tried doing it following a few tutorials on the Web. Obviously it's not working, because I continue to get a "NAT error" when trying to connect.

I'm using a laptop to access a wireless network at the town library. I have full access to all the settings on my own computer, but is there something I need to do to the Internet router or whatnot?

Actually you need to foward that port through all firewalls, routers ect. (This would include both Window's firewall and anti-virus, some people forget one or the other lol) I use BitComet myself, and it does all that for you, but I found a few sites that helped me get some lovely speeds. :tazz:

A few sites you might find handy:

http://www.portforward.com/routers.htm -- Tells you how to get into your router and such

http://www.p2pforums...76fc439eaefaac1 -- poke around a bit and you should be able to whatever you need.

I hope this helped a bit. ^-^

The point is you are accessing a public internet. You won't be able to configure their router. What perhaps the best thing is to go to a site which can do a 'open' port scanning on your network and use it as your bittorent's port settings, that might work.
