Stranger Than Fiction
My cable company provided me with a wireless router/cable modem combo for my new install. It doesn't support port forwarding out of the box, I had to call the tech support line and get the administrator password to set it up. After configuring the port forwarding and saving, uTorrent still reports as being unconnectable. I've tried multiple ports all with the same result. The only way I was able to make my system connectable was to put it's IP into the DMZ setting of the router. I'm pretty sure that the DMZ option isn't exactly smart, but I can't figure this out. Do you think I just have a bad router? What else could be causing this?
