    I just received my seedbox, w2k3. I am installing utorrent and am stuck at the first screen on the port. What port do I use and how do I configure it to be open. On my home I could open a port on my router. I can't understand how that equates on a seedbox.

    pick a number between 1024 and 65535

    stay away from the know BT ports, i like to hang in the 4x,xxx to 5x,xxx range

    Just like seppyporn said, stay away from the default bittorrent protocol ports (6881-6889) and you'll be fine . Some trackers do not allow those ports, and besides that, if you use those ports it's easier for you ISP provider to "track your movements" if you know what I mean

    Good sharing

    Well if thats the case, you must have somehow a firewall blocking the port you have chosen..

    In my case, my seedbox has by default all ports redirected

    I have to be missing something obvious. I set the port in utorrent to 3xxxx and try testing the port with the test button in utorrent and it comes back as closed. Do I need to open it anywhere else?

    What SO do you have in your seedbox?

    If it's windows, make sure you don't have peerguardian running when testing the port, because it blocks the testing page to access to your port. happened to me sometime ago..

    Sqt thanks for your help. It now shows open but my upload speeds are still terrible. In the 30kBs range.

    The os is W2K3. Peer guardian isn't installed yet.

    Just because you have a seedbox doesn't automatically give you great upload speeds.

    You still need loads of leechers pulling off you.

    Try with something very popular off TL when it is newly upped.

    I agree however I had these types of speed on my home connection. I just downloaded a popular file on TL and am upping at .4kBs.
