Setting Up a Port Forward for Azureus
When you use Azureus you may need to forward ports in your router. The purpose of forwarding ports is to make a direct connection from the internet to Azureus.
Routers are not designed to allow incoming network requests. Forwarding ports can work around this limitation.
Before You Forward a Port
Make sure that you know these things before forwarding a port:
- The IP address of your router.
- Your download client's internal IP address.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
Locate Your Router's IP Address
The easiest way to locate your router's IP address is to run our free Router Detector utility. The software is part of our Network Utilities suite of tools and it is completely free to use.
If you do not want to run the software, you can follow our Find Your Router IP Address guide.
How To Set Up Port Forwarding for Azureus
You can use our Network Utilities software to automatically forward ports for you. Network Utilities lets you manage port forwards by putting them in when you need them and also removing the ones that you no longer need which maximized network security.

- Begin by logging in to your router.
- Locate the section in your router that deals with port forwarding.
- Put the IP address of your download client in the proper box in your router.
