WARNING : Your 16150 port is not reachable

I am trying to get MLDonkey working. I have installed mlnet & kmldonkey, it seems to connect...i get a list of servers connected to & i can get search results but so far I have not been able to download anything. Looking at the logs in "console" I see most servers report the following:

WARNING : Your 16150 port is not reachable. Please review your network config.

What does this mean? Is this why I cannot download?

How should I review &/set the network config.?

System is Kanotix (Debian); packages were all installed using apt-get & I do not have an active firewall.

Are you using a router? If so you will probably need to enable port forwarding. Check the MLDonkey documentation to see what ports you need to allow access to.

If you are connected directly to the internet w/o any kind of a router, make sure your firewall really is down (although I don't know that I would want to leave my machine that exposed when directly connected!). As root, give the commands:

iptables -nL
iptables -t nat -nL

In each case you should see three chains listed, but no rules.
