Are you running iptables to block ports?
If not they are all open by default, and it is probably your ISP that is blocking them
Try "lsmod" or "iptables -L" as root to check.

i think i have opened the ports this is the results from when i type iptables -L

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:4662

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere 192.168.0.2 tcp dpt:4662

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination


xmule still wont connect, i know it isnt a problem on my network firwall or my isp blocking ports as i have had my mates laptop connected to the networks with emule in windows fully working and downloading files through port 4662

after a few changes my output from iptables -L is

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere anywhere tcp dpt:4662
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere bn-slack.berrancenetworks.co.uk tcp dpt:4662

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere 192.168.0.2 tcp dpt:4662
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere bn-slack.berrancenetworks.co.uk tcp dpt:4662
ACCEPT tcp -- anywhere bn-slack.berrancenetworks.co.uk tcp dpt:4662

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

from my understanding i need to deleat the 3 strings in the FORWARD section and create one in the OUTPUT sectoin if this s write how can i do this is i am geting very confused at the moment LOL

I don't think iptables is blocking anything - you've had the default policy as ACCEPT right from the start, so nothing was being blocked.
