Forward Ports for BitComet
You might need to forward some ports in your router when you use BitComet. By forwarding ports you allow connection requests coming from the internet to be directed to BitComet.
By default routers do not allow incoming network requests. Forwarding ports can work around this limitation.
Remember to Do These Things Before You Forward a Port
Make sure that you know these things before forwarding a port:
- The internal IP address of your router.
- Your download client's IP address.
- Each of the TCP and UDP ports that you need to forward.
