Ares - Unable to connect to the internet

December 2016




Issue


Ares isn't getting connected to the internet, no matter how many times I've re-installed the software.

Solution

  • Open Ares> Control Panel > Transfer tab
  • Copy the port number
  • Go to Windows Firewall andclick on exceptions and then click add port then type in the name "Are"s and select the port as "TCP" and paste that port number.
  • Repeat the operation for the UDP section and it's done



Thanks to sj for this tip!
