Would you please explain your problem in more detail. Are you using a router? Are you using a firewall? I've always found that doing the port forwarding in the router does the trick. I have never had to mess with iptables.

Thanks.

Well I use azureus (p2p bittorrent) and I am receiving no incoming connections, which I can only assume is a network configuration problem within kubuntu.

I run a dual boot system and azureus runs fine under xp so its safe to assume my router is configured properly.

Kind Regards

it may be worth checking what NAT ports you have open you can do this in kubuntu be using network tools it should be under system in the K menu also are you using a firewall such as firestarter this could be blocking them if its running fine in windows it shouldnt be a router problem (if you have one) but its always worth double checking

well I have just installed kubuntu and I believe no firewall is installed by default.

Azureus has a configuration wizard, and when I run a nat test it returns an ok report.

I hope someone can help with this

Kind regards

well if azureus says the NAT port is ok it probley means that the port is fine and its a problem with azeurus rather then linux u could try updateing your version of azures and java or even compiling azureus to see if that fixis it or use a differnt bit torrent client. on my computer i have the NAT ports targeted and the config wizard says all is ok but i get pop ups saying that it cant find the port however i still get fast download rates and it has a healthy status so it doent really bother me

Thanks manicman, I'm still having problems. Do you think it might be something to do with upnp? even though I have forwarded the upnp port in my router I have settings such as on/off, advertisiment time to live, advertisement period. This is just a guess because most of my previous network configuration problems have been router based.

kind regards

Hi ceborame
I don't belive it would be to do with upnp because azureus indicates that the NAT port is fine (although there is no harm in playing). you could try scanning your ip with a different app i use gnome-nettool you might have to sudo apt-get install that because it probably doesn't come with kubuntu. Also check that your ip hasn't changed when moving from windows to linux because mine did and i had to set up a static ip address using network-admin so that my NAT ports could be targeted to just one ip
