I am trying to port forward so i can use my P2P program to seed but i cannot connect because my ports are not open. My router is port forwarded properly as far as i can tell... it seems no matter what port i use it is closed, port 80 included.

This is the error i get...Error: I could not see your service on **.*.***.**** on port (80)

Reason: Connection refused

 

 windows firewall is setup correctly aswell. 

i am only connected to a single router its specs are: Zoom Docsis 3.0 Cable modem/Router With wireless N, Model 5350 (http://www.zoomtel.com/products/5350.html)

Please lend me guidance

 

my Operating system is Win7 Professional SP1 x64.

 

any other info please ask.

Generally you dont want to open port 80 unless you're running a secured web server. As far as p2p goes what p2p program are you using? They all have different settings and default ports. Some you have to do nothing on your part, it automatically sets firewall rules and opens random tcp/udp ports as needed when the user initiates a download/upload. The router doesn't need to be configured for port forwarding or UPNP. However, Some programs may not work without UPNP enabled or a specific port forwarded.

Are you going through a VPN proxy service?

Info from their website: http://support.tixati.com/settings%20-%20network%20-%20incoming%20ports In the router you have to setup port forwarding manually for both TCP and UDP to your machines local IP according to what ports you set in the program (picture). It shows there that TCP port is for the connection and UDP is for the packets. However, you could turn on UPNP in the router and the program will open whatever ports it needs to run properly. Also check your windows firewall or whatever virus suite firewall you're using. It has to be added in there.
