I am trying to open ports in uTorrent itself, none of the ports I try will open. I do have PeerGuardian but I don’t run it to much. I tried to open the port by going to Options–>Speed Guide. Type in a port number and check to see if it’s open. What port should I try? I tried two so far. One was 1024, and the other 6885. I will post below the message. I will also remove out my IP address (to prevent illegal actions and/or hackers).
Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.
A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.
Checking port 6885 on Removed IP…
Error! Port 6885 does not appear to be open.
Please see www.portforward.com for more information about how to map a port.
Please make absolutely sure that PeerGuardian2 or Protowall is allowing utorrent.com (126.96.36.199) in either of those programs. Those of you using ipfilter.dat should make sure the list does not include the website’s IP. After making sure of this, re-run this test by refreshing the page (F5).
