Your computer feeling a lot slower lately? That new program you installed not working? Can't convert a specific file? Looking to buy a new hard drive or dvd writer? Would like some recommendations? Firewalls, latest threats and general P2P security issues are here also.

Hi, how would I go about port forwarding. Sorry if this sounds stupid, but I am only semi computer literate.
I have a PC that was originally set up with the router and some version of eMule (not sure which I hardly use the PC anymore) and a newer laptop.

I have eMule v050a and a Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC router.

I was able to permit my firewall (thanks to this thread) and now I am properly connected to the Kad network which helped up my download speeds by 500%, but still I get low id for the ED2K network and servers. I input the standard recommended port numbers 4262, and 4272 but when I tested the ports nothing doing. And I wouldn't begin to know how to start to forward the ports.

would appreciate it very much if you could help.
thanks very much

hi Robbo7.I used a site called portforward and it runs through everything you need in simple terms but to be honest if you have a good kad connection thats the main thing as lots of people dont even bother with servers.
hope this helps :)

Weird, I have done just what I said in my earlier post but did not get around to port forwarding. And one day out of nowhere I got high ID. Maybe the port numbers and firewall were the only problem after all.
Anyway, thanks poison 13.

Needing some help getting rid of that LowID and into a HighID...

1) which version of emule you are using, especially if it is a mod version.
eMule v0.50a

2) your type of internet connection, and model & type of modem. It is imperative you know if you are connected to the internet via a router, or via a modem (whether its a broadband modem, or dial-up). If you don't know this information, it is going to be very hard to help you.
Clear, via Motorola WiMax CLEAR Modem model CPEi25150. Depending on the day and month I get from 3mbps to .5mbps Down and around .5 to 1 mbps Up (Anyone with Clear understands the huge swing in speeds lol)

3) your operating system, and a list of all 'security' applications - eg firewalls or 'total internet security' type apps. You generally don't need to list malware programs like "Spybot - Search & Destroy" or anti-virus programs but if in doubt list them all.
WinXP Pro SP3, default Win firewall and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011

4) confirm if you can or cannot log in to your router (if you have one). If you can't log in (or haven't ever done so), this is why you haven't got a HighID. Concentrate on this step if this is the case. If you can't log in, don't worry about anything else, fix this first. We can help you with this, just inform us you can't log in.
I have a router as part of the set-up, but the computer with eMule is hard-wired (and everything I have tired has been tried both -with- and -without- the router plugged in)

5) what you have already done to try to achieve a HighID.
Static IP, Port Forwarding, turning off firewall, rebooting router/modem, used UPnP, tried the OpenPort program, tested multiple ports (default and otherwise)

6) most important: please confirm you have visited the Tutorial post (see above) and try to describe where you got up to, or how the tutorial failed to help you. This way we can improve the tutorial and maybe stop the need for threads like these.
I keep failing the TCP test no matter what I try.

7) anything else you consider relevant.


8) please report the result you get from the 'Test ports' feature in emule options (the connection tab)
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.

EvanK, how confident are you that you set your port forwarding settings correctly?? If you aren't confident, maybe post screenshots of your settings...

Problem solved!!

I made a system restore point a few days ago, so I went back in time to see if my emule and FW get along for a change(:
and they actually DID!
(kinda)
So in the end it seems I was using the Comodo "firewall" mode and not the "internet security" mode. The emule rules were exactly the same, but the firewall's "global" rules are different. anyways it works now. not the edonkey server no2 though - that one still disconnects after a few minutes, but as you mentioned earlier, this is its normal behavior these days..
"Share islands" also gave me similar disconnections, but PEERATES.NET goes smooth at least for the last 6 hours, so I'll stick with what works(:

Thanks for your support, and I hope my mule will have a long and healthy life, yours too(:

I am back unfortunately :( I need my mule running again!

1) Emule .50a and MorphXT 12.6
2) DSL Internet, Netgear WGT624v4 Router, and Actiontec GT701D Modem.
3) Windows 7 Home Premium, No firewall, no Antivirus
4) I can log into my router.
5) Setup a static IP and forwarded 2 ports to my mule.
6) Went through this tutorial viewtopic.php?t=66859#1 and completed it. I used the tutorials at PortForward.com to set up the ports and static ID. Got the ports forwarded and the static ID set up, but still failed the TCP UDP test and still have a low ID. Also tried UPnP.
7) Not sure why I have a low ID. First time using Emule on this laptop.

Don't you have to enter the full IP address for forwarding??
or did you paint that out (more than likely)??

things i need to know:

* have you only recently lost HighID?
* have you had a HighID with the same hardware config you have now?


things to try:

* please ensure that UPnP is enabled on both your PC and your modem.
* check out Simple Port Forwarding, it may help (google it)
* the node type is Hybrid ... please find out more about this, what does this refer to ?? It could mean that your port forwarding needs to occur further up the net chain.
* please try completely deleting all your port forwarding settings and re-do them (do this last if nothing else works)

I have not had a High ID on this laptop yet. I had High ID on my desktop which is now running my network through which this laptop is now connectiong though. However my desktop that had the High ID, can not even connect to emule at all since connecting this wifi router and laptop.

In other words, my desktop had a HighID when connected to just a modem, now that I connected a router for my laptop, my desktop and laptop won't get a High ID. My desktop won't connect to KAD or ED2K servers at all. Even when I set up ports specifically for it. Im at a loss here.. any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated.


So to be simple, My laptop has never had a HighID through this connection and my desktop used to have a High ID from this connection until I added the wireless router.



Hope this helps.

Do you have a friend that can lend you a different router to use as a temp? (save you from buying a new one for nothing)
Do you "still" have Hi ID wired directly with your modem?

OK, now we're getting somewhere :)

It's best if we chat real-time while you tell me what you see in the router config screen. PM me something i can connect to -- skype, MSN, & gmail are all my possible chats, surely you can do one of them :p

Only have one router. Me and Sop have been troubleshooting through Skype over the past couple weeks and have made very little progress. :(

However I am confident that he will figure it out... I hope. I have a desktop that is hardwired to the same router (via Cat5) and it wont connect at all, this laptop I have connected through the same router only it is wifi and it connects to both KAD and ED2K but both LowID.

I have another router, but it has no Wifi I believe. I can hunt for it and try it if you think that would help

Definitely. ;)

Also, as I had suggested a few posts back, try and borrow one from a friend temporarily and see if that helps as well, if possible.
If his works or even your other with no Wifi, it is time to put it under your car's wheel and and pull off a brake torque. :samurai
