Hello,

If you are using a router for the main connection, You will have to open the ports for incoming connections for your torrent client!

*Open a web browser window and type your Default Gateway IP number in the address bar. It should be 192.168.1.1 in most cases.

* To login leave username blank and type admin for the password (unless you have changed it before which is always advisable)
* Find the section that says Port Range Forwarding or similar
* Add in the port range 6881-6889 for Torrent files
* Make sure you check both protocol boxes TCP and UDP as well as the Enable setting.

* Have the forward address set as your internal IP address 192.168.1.72 in our case. To find yours Go to Start -> Run and type in cmd.

This will open a DOS window. Type the command IPCONFIG and look for your IP Address
