  1. Supreme macrumors newbie

    Here's what I'm running:

    24" iMac 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Mac OS X Version 10.5.2
    AirPort Extreme connected through ethernet cable

    I have very low speeds and Azureus shows that I'm "Firewalled"... I've done some heavy googling but haven't found a solution. I tried opening two different ports through the AirPort Utility to no avail. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Anybody encountered this problem and if so how did you get past it? Any help would be appreciated as I am not to familiar with how to open/close ports properly etc. Thanks.

    BTW, I originally was using the newest Azureus 3.0 but did not like it and had the same problem(s) anyway, so it's not the version of Azureus (I don't think).

    In a house. On a street. In a city.
    I would recommend a program called Lighthouse by codelaide software. I purchased it a while ago and I find it invaluable. It basically handles port forwarding for you automatically, and it can open and close ports depending on what program you open. I have mine set to open the ports necessary for Azureus when it opens. I use mine with my Airport Extreme, and it really is easy. I don't know if an application is the way you'd like to go, but I highly recommend it.
    (I am in no way connected to the company, and do not profit whatsoever from their success. I am just thoroughly impressed with this little piece of software, and would like to spread the word.) :)

    Thankyou for this suggestion! I've been having trouble with port forwarding for Transmission, and this has fixed it completely. Great app.

    Not a problem! I think this app is one of the best. It's easy to use, and works like a charm. :cool:
