firewall or router blocks p2p ports
i use a speedtouch 516 ethernet adsl modem and fedora 7. when i want to use programs that use the torrent protocol i always get some really low speeds. if i check the port using the port tests incorporated in those programs (deluge, azureus) they always show me that the port is closed. i tried using iptables to add that port, firestarter but no resoult. even stopping iptables leads to nothing. the same answer: the port is closed. shields up told me that all my ports are in stealth mode. i did a telnet 10.0.0.138 to see if there are any settings in the modem that don't allow me to use p2p programs.i've had this pb on sabayon linux too. Can you pls help? can this be a router related problem?
what is interesting is that i have no problems with internet on windows. :confused:
