    I need to know what I would set to open the ports on the first picture... Please take this seriously no immaturity... Thank you!

    (I need to know what I would set for the trigger port the trigger type and the oublic port and public type as well.)

    To know if it's TCP or UDP, check the readme but usually it will be TCP unless you're playing a game.



    Also, a good way to improve your speed and allow file transfers is to make your machine the DMZ host. read your manual for that. It should tell you how to do it.

    could I also put 10000 - 60000 into public ports... or would that not work? Also DMZ is easy on my router its just Instert IP and click enable and apply... But I would rather not do that... I don't have a software firewall right now unless windows SP2 firewall would cover me...

    Sure, if you wanna get hacked by having so many ports freely.


    If you're DMZ host, you should not have to open ports for BT. If you're having problems with a specific BT client, try another one.
