    I'm trying to use Opera to recieve a bittorrent file of 46gigs :)

    I clicked on "bittorrent preferences" and then "test" to test my incoming listen port! the test failed saying, "When testing whether you can accept incoming connections on the configured port, the server returned the following error" SERVER TIMED OUT" I know i have to configure my firewall and or the router config.

    Is there a spot that will walk me throught the process.

    I'm on a LInksys Wireless G router. Mac OSX

    I tried to Port Forward for my PC. I ended up losing my connection entirely. OK, lets say I don't use the router. I have the internet connected directly to my Mac. I tried testing the port and it works. The bitTorrent file loads into "transfer" folder, but never downloads! What do I need to configure in my "sharing" or Opera?

    This is the message I get!
