    i am behind a wireless/wired 3com router, using ABC on Windows XP 2002 Professional with SP2 installed, only other changes to the system is neowin's multipatcher for my themes.

    i have went through the admin process of creating a "special' application to open ports 6881-6999, however they can only be binded to 1 port. I made this the first in the series, so 6881. (see attachment)

    Has anyone else had issues with ABC behind a NAT?

    If you have a UPnP-enabled router, you can use a UPnP-enabled BT client like Azureus or BitComet to dynamically open and close the necessary ports.

    Which of the two would you recommend? Or are there more upnp aware clients?

    There might be others that are UPnP-aware too...I just know that these are two major ones that are.
    I'm currently using BitComet myself, but Azureus is an excellent client too. Guess you could check out their feature-sets and decide. BitComet is coded in C++, while Azureus, as you know, is a Java client.

    Gonna try the Comet one, since the Azureus website is 404'ing on me. Thanks Net!
