How to Port Forward BitSpirit on the Linksys WRH54G


Having trouble forwarding ports on the Linksys WRH54G?

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 Linksys WRH54G router to save you time and hassle.

Before we can forward ports for BitSpirit, we need to figure out what ports BitSpirit is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up BitSpirit.

Click Options in the menu at the top of your screen. In the list that drops down click Preferences.

Click the Network Options tab at the top of that page. You should now see the menu shown in the screenshot above. The number in the Default Port for TCP Listening box contains the port you need to forward. You can change this port if you want to. If you do change it, it is a good idea to pick a port between 10000 and 60000. Most ISPs do not block those higher numbered ports.
