Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Setting ports I have a satellite connection and use a Hughes HN7740S modem. I am trying to install 'utorrent' and get an error message 'Port 16663 does not appear to be open'. Should I be adding this port on my modem? I can't find any settings that will let me do this. Or, is it something I have to change on my laptop? Are there any security implications I should be aware of if I add a port? Geoff


Answers :

Hello, I went through this with utorrent when I first started and I had trouble with my router not opening the port. When I hook directly to the modem the port is open. But after much research I found that you don't have to have the port open, it just enables other to download from the items that you are seeding. Works just fine either way. Enjoy.
