Opening up a port using smarbro plan 999 is impossible coz they dont give us our OWN unique ip addresses.

Here's how to allow a uTorrent Port through your firewall.

1) Start Menu/Control Panel/Switch to Classic View/Windows Firewall/Exceptions

2) If uTorrent is not shown in Exception/Programs and Services, click Add Program, browse for uTorrent, click uTorrent, click ok.

3) To add a port - click Add Port:

3.a) For TCP Port: Name it to something like uTorrent TCP port then enter port number of uTorrent (see the Listening Port in uTorrent options), click TCP button, click Ok.

3.B) For UDP Port: Name it to something like uTorrent UDP port then enter port number of uTorrent (see the Listening Port in uTorrent options), click UDP button, click Ok.

4) Close Add Port window.

5) Click Ok to close Firewall window. Restart PC.

It's possible. Last month in our place, technicians from SmartBro went house to house to put a unique IP address to every canopy. All my neighbors availed, me unfortunalety didn't coz i was not home.

No, I think theyve only change the ip's from dynamic to static..

Ill bet a thousand bucks your neighbors still cant portforward any p2p clients.  :smiley:

you're maybe correct coz i have not checked out myself the canopy configs of my neighbors after that.

what i did to open a port for p2p sharing is to portforward my uTorrent port using the software from portforward.com. i can see a green check button somewhere in the lowest middle part of the uTorrent window which tells me that my network is working as it should be. usually if a uTorrent port is blocked, a red exclamation point circular button or a yellow exclamation point triangular button would appear.

i can download up to maximum of 80kB/s and upload up to 100kB/s during non-peak hours. for peak hrs an average of 50kB/s download and 60kB/s upload.

yes i did.

btw, have you seen that tiny yelow exclamation mark in the lowest middle part of the uTorrent window? click it and it will show you the Connection Type. Your choice should range from 384 kbps up to 648kbps depending on what setting gave you the best result. A setting more than that will hurt your connection. Also, enable encryption which I believe will help increase speed.

i have a question, did you tweak your smartbro already?

i tried to use that program and it asked me for the brand of my router. the trouble is, i don't have one. is port forwarding impossible if you don't have a router?

i just had a couple of program ports forwarded.

there was a time when  I used cFosSpeed, i discovered that SmartBro is using a "remote router" (please correct me if im wrong). i believe this is the equipment used to distribute evenly the bandwidth allocation of each base station, which limits our uploads and downloads however we do the tweaking. if tech support reveals to you the name of this equipment then portforwarding will be easier.

i checked the yellow exclamation and it says "no incoming connections".

i have also tweaked my cpu got only 381Kbps max...50Kbps sometimes...

unstable speed. but even at my highest speed connection my torrent still

does not speed up more than 2Kbps. i don't have a router also...

how were you able to attain those utorrent dl speeds? are you using a router?

btw, i noticed in our canopy page under configuration->protocol filterring and nat portmapping that we can set those ports? im afraid to modify the settings

however and i want to seek advice first if it is safe and how to set it... do you have any idea about this one... thanks for the response sir...appreciate it very much...

i advise you to not mess up with your canopy. dont change anything except the dl/ul throughput and the dl/ul burst.

now try these utorrent settings:

1. go to preferences/downloads: uncheck "Append .!ut to incomplete files"; check "Pre-allocate all files"; check "Prevent standby if there are active torrents".

2. go to connection: make sure you use a value above 40000 in "Port used for incoming connections". uncheck "Randomize ports..."; uncheck "Enable UPnP port mapping; uncheck "Enable NAT-PMP port mapping; check "Add uTorrent to Windows Firewall Exceptions" (very important). Set Maximum upload rate = 60; Maximum download rate = 0 (w/c is unlimited)

3. go to BitTorrent: Global maximum number of connections = 375; Maximum number of connected peers per torrent = 100; Number of upload slots per torrent = 4; check "Use additional upload slots if upload speed < 90%; check "Enable DHT Network", "Enable DHT for new torrents", "Asl tracker for scrape info", "Enable peer exchange"; enable outgoing Protocol Encryption; check Allow incoming legacy connections. click apply.

4. go to Advanced: click "net.max_halfopen", in the Value box put 100, click set, apply. click "peer.disconnect_inactive_interval", in the value box put 600, click set, apply, ok.

5. restart uTorrent.

See to it that your torrent will have the most number of seeders than your peers. you download from the seeders, upload to your peers.

Also make sure your firewall not just allow uTorrent.exe but also the TCP & UDP port being used.

Try it and post the result.

just do the suggestions i gave you.

i think you have to make your screenshot a little smaller. i'd like to see everything there.

but before that. try to search and get torrents from www.torrentscan.com

please see to it that you're downloading torrents with more seeders and peers.usually, the numbers are seen at the right side of the panel.

ok.

now if i saw it clearly you just got 4 seeds and 3 peers, too early to say your uTorrent DL is slow.

the speed will rise by the time you get more than 10 seeds and more than 20 peers, got it?

but one more thing, how were you able to get a green icon? are you

using a router. I tried to figure out what router to use in portforwarding.com

but i can't....

good but not enough. increase more speed at your connection type box. try also to switch ports until you get satisfactory result.

i'm not on a router. what i forwarded were ports used by uTorrent.

better torrents www.torrentscan.com

@ coolbuster

How do you forward ports? Isn't it that port forwarding is not supported by smartBro? What software do you use? And also, what firewall are you using? Windows Firewall? You have to include uTorrent in the exceptions right?

Good Day!!
