KWF works very well for me except when using bittorrent. When the kwf turned on, bittorrent only found a few seeds and very hard to be connected. After shut down kwf, bittorrent found more seeds and transfer smoothly. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

BTW: I'm using version 5.1.8 and windows server 2003

It is normal. Common problem with peer to peer network clients running behind firewall is that firewall blocks all unsolicited connections from the Internet. Every good firewall have the same behaviour.
Bittorrent client found a few seeds because it can download only from other clients who are not behind firewall.

There is no solution unless you want to permit all incoming connections from the Internet. If you know which ports are used, you can create a Traffic rule to allow access to these ports from the Internet.

Thanks a lot. My BT client uses port 6881-6889, so do I have to create rule for each port seperately? if so, how (the policy)?

Better way is to define own service with port range 6881-6889 and create a traffic rule to allow incoming connections.

Hello!! http://smilies.sofrayt.com/%5E/a/bye.gif I'm having the same problem but I'm using Kerio Personal Firewall.http://www.xeron.org/semana/images/weekday.gif
I create a rule for bittorrent following these steps: Network Security -> Click on Bittorrent -> Packet Filter -> And there, on the local box y create the rule for the port range 6881-6889.
But I'm shure I have done it bad, because I'm having the same problems as flypigy.

Could you pleasehttp://smilies.sofrayt.com/%5E/b0/pray.gif tell me the policy I need to follow to create the rule for Bittorrent's ports 6881-6889?

Thank you very much!http://smilies.sofrayt.com/%5E/_950/curtsey.gif

PD. I know that these forum is for KWF questions, but I posted it here because the problem was the same, hope you don't mind http://smilies.sofrayt.com/%5E/f0/shy.gif
