How to Port Forward BitTornado on the Buffalo WHR-HP-G54

Having trouble forwarding ports on the Buffalo WHR-HP-G54?

If you are having trouble with this guide, then perhaps PFConfig may be your solution. PFConfig is a software tool that will automatically forward ports for your router to save you time and hassle.

Since you are reading this guide, I'm going to assume that you have Bit Tornado installed. Open up Bit Tornado.

Close to the top you will see a Prefs link. Go ahead and click that link now.

The Port Range box defines the ports that Bit Tornado will use. These are the ports that you need to forward to your computer. Bit Tornado does not need the full 50,000 ports that come predefined. Go ahead and uncheck the Random checkbox. Enter 10000 into the From box, and enter 10010 into the To box. If you expect to download more than 10 files at the same time, then you should make this range of ports larger.

On this page there is a UPNP Port Forwarding drop down box. Open it up and set that box to disabled. We are not going to use UPNP to forward our ports. Now go find your router on our routers page, and forward the port range you set above.
