I've been curious to find out if there's a way I can be certain or test to see if I'm port forwarding correctly to get the best poerformance out of things like p2p programs. I've read a lot of articles, tweaked a lot of things, can't seem to figure out if I'm actually changing things or doing anything correctly.

I'm on windows 2000 sp4, have a westell6100 that verizon gave me. Any suggestions?

hmm


I assume your router is set up already, so you want to see if it took?

try this:

Start your program

start > run
cmd
<enter>

type
netstat -an |find /i "established"
<enter>


if the port number you set to forwarding is listed as established (a connection exists)

Then it should show here
