Emule still elusive...

Love CIS! proud long time user. However, I have been baffled for days trying to get Emule to work. I setup CIS firewall just as described here:

When testing ports TCP port shows closed. It has been stated elsewhere CIS might interfere even if shut down? I was able to connect with no problem in safe mode with networking (no CIS). Can anyone help me solve this dilimma before I lose the rest of me mind! TIA :BNC

You probably need to open the two ports in Global Rules as well. I assume you did not get alerted for incoming traffic.

Read the following tutorial I made. Substitute the port numbers and protocol for your situation.

To open the port TCP 1723 for example

First step is to determine the MAC or Physical address of you network connector. Go to Start → Run → cmd → enter → a black box will show up and enter the following → ipconfig /all (notice the space before /all) → enter → now look up the Physical address and write it down.

Notice that Physical address = MAC address

Firewall → Network Security policy → Global Rules → Add → fill in the following:
Action: Allow
Protocol: TCP
Direction: In
Description: Incoming Port

Source address: Any
Destination Address: Choose MAC address and fill in the found MAC/Physical address
Source Port: Any
Destination Port: 1723

Then push Apply → Now make sure that the new rule is somewhere above the basic block rule(s) as the bottom (the block rules have red icons); → Ok.
