How can i open ports in mint? I can't use aMule...

Postby mig_akira on Wed Feb 13, 2008 1:08 am


I'm new to mint and to the linux world. I want to open some ports so that I can normally use aMule and Azureus. As it is, they are unable to download/upload anything.

Thanks a lot!

PS - Since I am brazilian, I don't know if you guys use the term "open ports"...what I want is to liberate the connection so that aMule and others can download and upload.

Thanks again!

That should just work
If you have a router you may have to open ports (yes the correct term) in the router
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
