Title: HELP ME PLEASE!!!! - No one can dl from me - I have linksys
Post by: Anonymous on October 16, 2005, 03:58:32 pm
- Operating system:                        Windows XP
- Internet connection type                Cable
- WinMX Version                              3.35
- Secondary or primary user            Secondary
- What make of firewall you have     Windows/Linksys
- Router brand and model                Linksys Wirless G, WRT54G
- Any WinMX add-ons installed         (Leechhammer)

I do not know anything about ports, i had lynksys set up my router over the phone.  I love WinmX and I want to share but no one can dl from me - it keeps timing out - can someone call me or email me and help me out with this?  I tried the chats and so far no luck, within WinMX.  My email is Doc2377@aol.com.

If you have one like mine (4 port router)... do this:

In your address bar, type 192.168.1.1

Enter your password - should be "admin" if you haven't changed it.

Go to the "advanced" button on the top right.

Go to the "forwarding" button near the top left.

Enter the following in the corresponding areas of the first open line:
1. WinMX
2. 6699
3. 6699
4. Check this box
5. Check this box
6. To find this number, go to "Start->Run", enter "cmd", then in the black box enter "ipconfig", and find the line that says "IP Address" and enter the last three digits.
7. Check "enable" (I disable mine whenever I exit winmx, but you can configure port triggering to have the same effect)

Works for me. If you have a software firewall, this is only half of what you gotta do.
