Firewall Issue

By Krueger
Jan 22, 2006
  1. Whenever I am running Limewire or Bittorrent, it says that it's detecting a firewall. I have turned the firewall off and forwarded all ports, but it's still detecting a firewall and saying it's "Natted". Can anyone help me out. I'm running XP with SP2

    Well, since you are forwarding ports, then you have a router, meaning you are natted and firewalled. So the message is correct. Do you actually have any problems, like not being able to connect in active mode?

    sure -- just wire your computer directly to the modem and the message will go away;
    about 30secs later, so will every thing else :( as NAT is your friend. :)
    The NAT feature makes it hard for the jerks to infest your system(s);
    any SPI implementation reduces junk traffic.
    your real problem (imo) is the use of Limewire & Bittorrent.
