I am trying to port forward on my Netgear DG834G Router, using the guides at port forward dot com. I want to set up port forwarding for eMule and BitTorrent. I cant seem to set it up! They still dont work! Someone please help! Is there a FREE program that will set it up for me?

µTorrent faq says this,

Manually forwarding a port

If UPnP is not available or does not work, it will be necessary to forward the port manually. Since we want to forward a single port, we need to set the listen port for µTorrent:

  1. To set a single port, navigate to Options > Preferences > Connections
  2. Click "random port" once, and note the port number provided. This will be the port number you will be forwarding in your router. (You may also assign a port number of your choice)
  3. Uncheck "Randomize port each time µTorrent starts." The port number will no longer change each time µTorrent is started.
So you need to get UPnP working. I did this with my router setting. Can't recall if I had to do much windows settings.

 UPnP Universal Plug and Play in Windows enables applications to communicate without additional settings at the firewall. Kerio WinRoute Firewall integrates UPnP technology so that compliant applications such as MSN Messenger can run instantly without hassle.
Kerio WinRoute Firewall, might be of use it's of a section on doing port mapping and port mapping.

PortForward.com sucks as it trying to sell you something and just gives  enough info to be confusing and well um yucky.
