I have a hardware firewall but thats for inbounds. You still need a software firewall for outbounds and Comodo has HIPS protection. What kind of modem do you have? Name? Brand? Model? You can check the manufactures website for everything. I am only asking for specifics cause its very easy to configure uTorrent if you do have a hardware firewall.
I personally tried both Pan’s and Rag’s ruleset. I also feel that Pan’s makes the download speed a little slower because it doesn’t accept connections to/from the peers who use (listening) port numbers below 1024. But of course, this means extra security. I don’t really see any security risk, but that’s my experience.
Rag’s is similar to the old CFP v2 style, which is what I use, but I also use something equivalent that I once set up with v2: to allow certain ICMP traffic. I find this maximizes uTorrent speeds.
The attached pic shows part of my Application Rules. I removed all Global Rules (only do this if you know what you’re doing).
i use pandlouk’s rules. :-TU , no problem downloading :-TU
no hardware firewall, DSL/broadband connection.
CFP3 Global rules setting:
stealth port wizard==>alert me to incoming connection-stealth my ports on per-case basis
(:NRD) (:NRD) (:NRD)
Wow soyabeaner, Sweet settings, (:NRD) How fast can you get? And is there a tutorial for setting those ICMP requests that max out speed?I just want to squeeze every last drop of download speed I can :Beer
you mean that FAQ link? i did >:(
oh nevermind ;D not a big deal (:TNG) !ot!
btw, are you sure, we’re OK by using your rule? mark utorrent as trusted and let it do whatever it wants?
hmm, i was gonna do that,but reading a lot of post about torrent issue made me think we need to do more tweaking for it.
i wish CFP can create some predefine rules for torrent software to make it easier :THNK
