portforwarding


I'm trying to set up Azureus and get a NAT error - so I am tring to forward my port - I'm stuck right here:

...Step 9:
Now go forward the Connection port and the Tracker Server port in your router. Make sure to also let those ports through any firewall you may have. Check for active firewalls on your router and allow the ports through there as well


How do I do this? I have a brand new Suse 9.3 system, I have the basic install, using a cable modem

Is your cable modem a router? In simple words: does it have an IP address?

Good question - I don't know - it is a D-Link DCM-202, I don't understand networking really well but I think it is just a cable modem

After looking at the specs... I think you can assume step 9 is finished. The device seems to have no firewall (have not checked in the manual, however) and no port forwarding should be needed.

The problem may be in a different place. Please see what IP address does your machine have. It's probably 10.x.x.x, 172.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x. Is that true?
