Problems with p2p clients not downloading


Hi, I am running Kanotix installed to hdd 2005-03 kernel 2.6.11
With all p2p clients I try using I can connect to server etc put when I try to download anything it does not work at all
I am using a wireless card (D-Link dwl-g122) with drivers rt2500 (ralink chipset)

On my router I have enabled port forwarding for Gnutella but it still does not work, also bittorrent will not work.

Does anyone have any idea why this could be?

Does your firewall allow the packets through?

Care to post how you fixed it? I'm having issues with Bittorrent as well, as far as I know my ports are forwarded correctly but the bt client is telling me otherwise.

I was not using bittorrent, Limewire.
But if your bittorrent says need TCP port 6881 for decentralized tracking or somthing similar I think you need to forward that port to your pc on TCP.
