    Firewall and p2p


    hello people long time no see..

    here is my problem, i hope you can help me... i have allways used debian based distros because of the apt and stuff... yesterday i installed mandriva 2006 free (i havent used it since mandrake 9.0 when i first met linux)... so i switched because of urpmi, i wanted to try it out... i installed it perfectly... i conigured some mirrors usin easy urpmi website... then i installed gtk-gnutella that i have allways used an qtella to try it out... but suddenly neither would connect to gnutella network... i found out that the firewall wouldnt let me do that... so the question is: what do i have to do to "unlock" then without deactivating my firewall?

    thanks ...

    if you know what port does your p2psoftware uses, that port should be allowed in your firewall

    Question p2p doesnt work..

    hi everyone..
    i have a problem with p2p connectios, they simply dont work..because im in a wireless area and the network provider is somehow blocking p2p connections. ive tryed to change port many times and it worked, but seconds later was gone again, "knocked down" i think, im wondering if is there a program or something to cheat this "protection"..
    thanks and excuse my bad english
