Most ISPs block the default port that Azureus uses. So it is a good idea to change Azureus' port number to something other than the default port. Here's a brief walkthrough on how to do that.
In Azureus click Tools in the menu at the top of your screen. Then click the Options link in the menu that drops down.
In the menu tree on the left hand side of this window Connection should be selected. Pick a random port between 49152 and 65535. Then enter that port into the Incomming TCP/UDP Listen Port box. When you are done, be sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the configuation screen.
Please enter the port you chose for Azureus below.
Now that you are logged in to your Linksys WRT54GP2 router you should see the following:
Click the Security link near the top of the page.
Put a dot into the Block Anonymous Internet Requests Disabled radio button.
Click the Save Settings button near the bottom of the page.
Click the Applications & Gaming link near the top of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Range Forward.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Azureus requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the Port Range Forward menu.
You should see another page of settings that need to be entered into one of the blank lines on your routers Port Range Forward page. Go ahead and enter those settings now.
When you're finished, click Save Settings near the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
And that's it! You're done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for Azureus on the Linksys WRT54GP2 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
