    Hi :)

    I got my first iMac last week so I'm a newbie to OSx, however I've come across something I've not been able to find an answer to via a search engine.
    I have a port open for the program 'Transmission' in my router's settings. I've tried several, and I've followed several different guides on how to do this, and yet it always tells me that the port is closed.
    Now, I know Mac has like infinitely better security than Windows does, but does it also mean that all the ports are going to be closed all the time? I have no idea, so I thought I'd ask here. It's a Netgear router, and I've followed a specific guide on it via 'portforwarding.com'. I've allowed the program to go through the Firewall too.

    Any help would be great. If not, no worries :)

    How is your Mac OS X firewall set?

    Edit: Try temporarily setting it to "Allow all incoming connections to see if this is a Mac OS X or router problem...

    Also you could try as a test to run without the router as well.
