tcp listening port help


hey Iím new to networking, and recently I installed azureus. it asks me to test a port for incoming peer connection, I have tried numerous port numbers and I am continually get a Nat error, I run Norton 2006 and also have an alpha shield.
I have two questions 1. is it necessary to have a tcp listening port to run this program? And 2. if so how do I go about opening a port?

fist are you behind a router? if your behind a router w/ a firewall you will need to punch holes throught the firewlal (including any sofware firewalls you may be runnint on your pc) for the ports you wish to use...

well first post your IP/Gateway/Subnet/DNS ... if they are something like 192.168.x.x then chance are that the gateway ip is your router/gateway ... if you go into your browswer and type in that gateway IP it should bring up a web interface (for most commercial products it does) else you may have to telnet into it...

If however you have an IP like 12.48.x.x or something other then a local lan IP then you are directly connected to the modem and it is bridged over... at which case you need to know if your connection is a DSL (ie PPPOE/A) connection or static or DHCP from your ISP
