UDP redirection doesn't work for linux.


Hello everyone, I've got problem with amule.
I can't use kad network. The reason is that, my UDP port is blocked. I redirected port in router, but it doesn't work.
I use this page for checking if everything is right - http://www.amule.org/testport.php
My port forwarding works for TCP but in some reason it doesn't for UDP.
I want to mention that this is linux problem. When in Windows everything is right.
I was using ubuntu, I thought it can be something wrong with it, but now I installed linux mint, and it still doesn't work! I checked almost everything and now I'm little depressed. This threat is my last hope
Thanks in advance.

it is not blocked !
YOU need to use "tcp+3" as per the set up documentation .

also BE WARNED most of the amule/edk servers host fake files ,renamed files , illegal files ( watched by the police ) and renammed ILLEGAL files to look like not illegal files( but the hash IS WATCHED by the police )

there are about only 6 servers that are NOT operated by ether the police or "bad guys"

now what might be blocked is the default 6881 - some isp's still mess with that
use a port that is in the 50000 to 65536 range


for example
if TCP is 50001 then UDP is 50004 ( tcp+3)
also for KAD you NEED to bootstrap from a known GOOD server.met file
and there only about 6 servers on that list

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately I still got problem, however I feel I made step forward
I was little confused with that tcp+3 so I just forwarded all tcp/udp ports on my router in range 50000-50010
Then I set: tcp-50002 udp-50007
Kad still doesnt work, but something changed on page for checking tcp connection.
Earlier was
Code:
Detailed Error Message
TCP Error 110 Connection refused

Explanation
The connection timed out, meaning the port is being blocked or incorrectly forwarded by a firewall 
or your computer is turned off :)
Now it was
Code:
Detailed Error Message
TCP Error 111 Connection refused

Explanation
The port is available for connections but a connection was refused meaning there is nothing listening on that port. This 
most likely means you can use ED2K but your client is not currently running. Try running this test again with an ED2K 
client running to make sure you can really establish a connection. No info available; this TCP error probably indicates a
 problem with the networking on your system (i.e. the TCP/IP stack).
Any more ideas?

Thanks also for your warnings, thats why I want to use kad only, its more safe.

Edit: I receiver high id for ed2k it does work >.> but problems with kad.
edit2: It says that kad is firewalled

have you read the wiki?
http://wiki.amule.org/index.php/Main_Page


did you grab the ONLY good server.met file
as far as i know this is the only good one ( LOCK IT DOWN and do NOT let any server update it !!!!!!!! )
h??p://gruk.org/server.met.gz there is about 6 or so servers listed on it
http://wiki.amule.org/index.php/Keep...ist_of_servers
see the old Edonkey wiki page
set amule to NOT overwrite it ( a cracked server can AND WILL replace your good file with a BAD file listing the servers that the bot herders are using and send you all kinds of virus infected files )

then in the kad tab bootstrap from a working server - wait about 15 min. it takes time
http://wiki.amule.org/index.php/FAQ_eD2k-Kademlia

but BE WARNED almost all of the top 100 listed in most searches will be viruses
something like
" SomeMusic.mp3.exe" or " SomeVideo.?" needing a codec from there HACKED web site
and installing that codec will install the virus ( MS windows problem "media player" will auto do it for you)
