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 LanTech HR-117 router to save you time and hassle.
Soulseek picks a random port, and uses that port to transmit data. Before we can forward ports for Soulseek, we need to find out which port to forward. Go ahead and open up Soulseek now.
In the menu at the top of your screen, click Options. This will drop down a submenu. In this menu click the General Options link.
The port in the Listening Port box, is the port that Soulseek is using. You can change this port to whatever you like, or you can just leave it set like it is. Please enter that port number into the following box.
Now that you are logged in to your LanTech HR-117 router you should see the following:
Click the NAT link near the left of the page.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Soulseek requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the NAT Server menu.
|#||Active||Name||Start Port||End Port||Server IP Address|
When you're finished, click Apply near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for Soulseek on the LanTech HR-117 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
