I’m not using a modem - just the router which is an eTec PTi845.
I configured the router with the IP address of 192.168.1.*** and set it to the port I wanted to use for uTorrent. It all seemed to be working fine till I did the test on uTorrent and it came up saying that the port wasn’t forwarded properly on …and it was my ISP address!
When I go into port forwarding on the router configuration, I’m then setting up a custom port forwarding - it asks for:
Application (uTorrent, I assume)
Source IP address
Destination IP address
Destination Netmask (which is already there as 255.255.255.255)
Destination Port Start
Destination Port End
Destination Port Map
This could well be where I’m going wrong cos I don’t know what to put in most of that.
There’s also a bit to set up LAN clients and in it, it asks for IP address, application and MAC address - where do I find the MAC address?
Sorry to sound so thick - especially if this should be easy enough.
And I did use that link for port forwarding - it just ain’t doing it for me!!
Just in case it’s relevant, when I do command - run - ipconfig/all, the info I get is:
