Code: Select all
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 6881 -j ACCEPT
and I've verified that the rule was successfully added to the INPUT chain. I've tried using various port numbers. I've also tried doing this with Firestarter. Yet, invariably, the bittorrent clients report that the chosen port is closed.
I was previously using uTorrent in Windows XP and I had it set to use random ports. This worked without problems, so this is not a problem with the router's firewall...
Does anyone have any insight into what I might be doing wrong?? Thanks for your help!
