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

You can run our free Router Detector software to locate your router's IP address. It's a part of the Network Utilities suite of tools and it's completely free to use.
