Azureus + NAT problem = :(
Posted by: Plumbking
Date: July 27, 2007 08:00PM
Azureus 2.5.0.4

Router is Airport Extreme (not N)

G5 Dual 2.0 GHz
OS X 10.4.10

Gigabit network

This setup has worked flawlessly for years. I have read the Azureus wiki so much I’ve almost memorized it. Been to Portforward.com. Have set TCP and UDP from 49125 thru 65535. Firewall is on with ports open. Port mapping matches IP address of G5 and open ports.

Like I said this set up has been working flawlessly for years. The only thing that has changed is my provider. RCN SF which serves me phone, internet, and TV has changed to Astound. Why, I don’t know. Same TV channels, same phone, maybe it’s my imagination but my internet speed is a hair slower. Used to get 9-10mbs with RCN now I get 6-7 with Astound (what a dumb name).

Azureus wiki says to avoid ports 6881-6999 as providers might block these. Could my new provider block ports 49125-65535?

Comments and questions greatly appreciated.



NAT port mapping protocol enabled at router

Error message from Azureus “ ERROR, unable to bind TCP incoming server socket to 55555 Can’t assign requested address”



Sorry to bore you on such a beautiful Friday evening. But I’m married with children so Friday and Saturday nights are like Tuesday and Wednesday nights to me.

Thanks

Hm, i guess its possible that another app is using the port.

I won't worry about it too much though. if you're really interested then ask on a good bittorrent forum.

bittorrent is damn good at working around one closed port. i don't see how this could cause a noticeable problem.

Got it!

In Tools->Options->Connection (..->Advanced Network Settings in v2.4.0.0 or newer) , the "bind to local IP address box" should be left empty.

Thanks for all your help
