Tcp Udp Ports Help -The setting
Posted 29 April 2012 - 10:53 PM
My OS is Windows 7 x86
I don't have router
My internet connection is cable
My antivirus is ESET32
I have big problem with eMule v 0.50a from the beginning. Somehow I change TCP and UDP ports in eMule and after this I never was able to download anything using eMule. I did everything what I found out online about firewalls in windows 7 but even there I've got message:
An error occurred while verifying the rule.
Error: the parameter is incorect
Status: "defer to user" setting can o0nly be used in a firewall rule where program path and TCP/UDP protocol are specified with no additional scopes
Everytime when I tried to test ports in the eMule I'm getting message:
Starting TCP connection test...
TCP test failed! UDP test will not be performed.
Connection test finished.
Results in detail:
* TCP connection test failed.
It was not possible, to establish a TCP connection to your eMule.
Other users will only be able to connect to you with the help of a server, resulting in a low ID for you. While eMule still works, this will give you several disadvantages. Therfore it is highly recommended to solve this problem.
And now I really need some help because I'm completely don't have any idea what's wrong and how to fix it.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

What devices you use for connecting to the net (probably cable modem)?
Have you created rules for eMule in antivirus and firewall?
That does not make sense. If you were able to download before changing ports, then why you tried to change? Why you do not revert to working ports?

2. I already set up firewalls rules.
3. Probably, you will be very surprised, but I didn't use long time eMule and it was not installed on my computer.
When recently I installed it, I don't know why but right after installation I changed my ports and my eMule never really worked.

Usually cable modems do not need any forwarding. Check it please using brand and model number.
I hope you made it right. For a brief test you could try to disable AV and firewall.
eMule works with Low ID, though with less sources. If it does not work at all, you have set up it incorrectly.
