How to Port Forward BitComet on the Siemens GigasetSE505

Having trouble forwarding ports on the Siemens GigasetSE505?

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.

BitComet chooses a random port to listen on when you install it. Before we can forward ports for BitComet, we need to find out what port BitComet is using. Go ahead and open BitComet.

In the menu at the top of your screen, click Options. Clicking Options will cause a menu to drop down. In this new menu click Preferences.

In the menu on the left the top option Connection should be selected. On the right hand side of this window you should see a Listen Port option. That is the port that you need to forward. You can change it if you like. Please enter the listen port below.

There is one more thing we need to do. We need to shut off the UPNP of BitComet.

In the menu on the left hand side under Advanced, click Connection. There should be an Enable UPnP Port Mapping(XP only) checkbox on the right hand side. Make sure it is unchecked.
