Hi everybody!

I'm absolutely new to the this forum. I just today posted a port-poblem I have with my configuration with the app "Transmission". I posted my problem in the Transmision Forum and they suggested, from what they could read out of the Log-file, that I should post my question with you experts.

Help would be greatly appreciated Smile

------------

Transmission port 9090 remains closed.

Using the latest Mac OS X, all updates fresh.
Using the latest nightly build of "Transmission", downloaded one hour ago, following a recommendation in another thread.
Using a Netopia 3347 NWG, Software 7.7.1r1 - UPnp ENABLED - Nat-PnP, well, I haven't figured that out yet...

Port 9090 remains closed no matter what.
The Log in DEBUG mode remains absolutely empty when I pause all transfers and toggle the automatic port mapping on and off. (As soon as I resume transfer all sorts of messages appear instantly)

At STARTUP though the Log shows the following message:

2008-08-10 09:32:49 +0200 upnp.c:93 [Info] Port Forwarding (UPnP): Found Internet Gateway Device "http://192.168.1.1:80/wpppc_cont"

2008-08-10 09:32:50 +0200 port-forwarding.c:89 [Info] Port Forwarding: State changed from "Starting" to "???"

End of my limited wisdom.

Any ideas anyone?

I am seeding and downloading but at a very low speed. Peers keep complaining, and they are right. Just don't know what to do anymore.

All the best, thegermanguy

from what I see, your Router is supporting UPnP, not NAT-PMP.
The Miniupnpc Library discovers the UPnP capability of your router correctly but the router answer the port mapping request with an error code 401. 401 means "Invalid Action"...

Have you tried to test the UPnP capabilities of your router with other software supporting UPnP ???
One OS X software usefull for testing UPnP (or NAT PMP) is Lighthouse : http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/networking_security/lighthouse.html

Thanks for your reply!

No, I haven't tried to test it, I wouldn't know how to.

Just downloaded Lighthouse and installed the testversion. Yet, I have not much of an idea what to do with it. Installing alone didn't help my closed port, as was probably to be expected.

Portmapping profile for Transmission seems to be active and reports no conflicts in Lighthouse. That's as much as I can see...

And it says "Connected to Router 192.168.1.1 (UPnp)", doesn't that mean it should be working?

Well I dont have a mac... But lighthouse is a software designed to add port mappings so I guess it is not that difficult.

Thanks for your patience Smile

The thing is, even though I'm quite okay with using my mac and can even help others out sometimes, I still have not the slightest clue what a "port" actually IS to begin with. Never had to deal with ports or their forwarding before (thank God). Much less I know what it means to "forward" a port (even though that might be the simplest task with Lighthouse), or how I would know if I had successfully "forwarded a port". That's exactly why I switched from Win to Mac, because usually my Mac works without much getting my hands dirty digging in its intestines...

I can see you shaking your head in disbelief, my friend, but the rookies are still out there Smile

If you don't want to know anything about port redirection - also called "port mapping" -, plug your computer directly to the internet without using any Router or don't use any software that need to be reachable from the internet (like Server or P2P software).
Otherwise, I'm afraid you need to learn some things about TCP/UDP and NAT...

Thanks again for your patience.

Transmission just released an update of their software. Port is now open. Much ado about nothing. Down and Uploadrates haven't changed for the better...

All the best from the alps!
