How to Port Forward eDonkey on the Linksys WRT330N


Having trouble forwarding ports on the Linksys WRT330N?

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 WRT330N router to save you time and hassle.

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

Click the Options button in the menu at the top of your screen.

In the menu on the left hand side click Advanced. On this page you should see an UPnP Support checkbox. Please Uncheck that box.

We are going to click another option in the menu on the left hand side. Let's click Network this time. You should see a TCP Port box and an UDP Port box. Enter a random port into each of these boxes. It doesn't matter what ports you choose, but a port numbers between 10000 and 60000 would be a good idea. A higher numbered port is generally the best to use, because most ISP's do not block the higher numbered ports. Please enter the port you chose for the TCP Port box into the box below.

Please enter the port you chose for the UDP Port box into the box below.
