Okay, I've read the manual over and over again. I've searched and searched and tried so hard to setup my firewall so that it will allow the clients on my network to use their p2p software (edonkey2000, bittorrent, etc.) I have tried every possible combination of policies in KWF6 and have yet to get a connection other than http. please help me.

1. Assign required TCP/UDP port to be opened in SERVICES
2. Create a Trafic Policy with the service that you just created.
3. MAP the service to your clients' IP.

Hope it helps..

A lot of these programs need also incoming connections.

But... if your KWF performs NAT it is impossible for the 'internet' to directly connect to your PC's, since the only publicly known IP address is the address of the KWF. You could map certain incoming ports to a local PC, but then that port is not available anymore to any other machine. Thus: you can get one local machine to work properly with p2p programs by mapping incoming connections on the neccesary ports to this machine, but not more than one local machine can be enabled this way. (See step 3 of the previous post...)

This is not a shortcoming of the KWF, but a limitation of the various p2p programs that need direct incoming connections. (Most p2p programs can work without, but then the downloads will not be very fast.)

Hope this helped.
