Thread: Port Forwarding Problems

  1. #1
    Hi,

    I've searched and searched on the net for days on end and have decided to have a shot on the forums.

    I couldn't find this by doing a forum search so I apologise if it is on here somewhere. But what I did find on here didn't seem to be what I was looking for.

    This is the deal:

    I'm on a LAN and I am the 2nd computer. The other is obviously the host.

    There is no Router, just a simple link-up cable. The Network works in terms of swapping local files back and forth etc.

    When I try to open K-Lite is continuously says it's connecting but never does. I know this is a common question but it's really doing my head in. Everybody says it's something to do with port forwarding but I haven't got a clue which ports to forward to or how the hell to do that anyway. K-Lite works on the host computer. Could someone please show me a simple step by step guide please because I haven't really got a clue with all this networking business. Thanks in advance!

    Does a web browser works on the second computer?

    Are you using windows ICS (internet connection sharing) or somthing else?

    Yes, the second PC runs the IE browser - I'm writing this from the second PC as we speak.

    As for ICS, yes I am using that.

    Hmm, I don't think portforwarding is the problem. Kazaa usually works from behind a connection sharing system.

    Have a look at the previous threads in the forum about kazaa lite which describe things to try like updating your supernode cache.

    have you tried using Kanat? this is a tool which configures kazaa to run on whatever network you are running.
    Those who dont learn from the past are doomed to repeat It.
