    Firstly a thumbsup to tomato.
    Love the stability the look and the crispnes of the firmware and its interface.

    Coming back to my query.

    I am not very happy with portforwarding.
    I am not sure if it works.
    I am using 2 laptops behind my wrt54g router v2.2
    static mac based ip asignment.

    I am using utorrent as my torrent client.
    I am using the same port 29343 for utorrent.
    However Earlier i was using tofu v14 october 2005 release and port forwarding worked.

    Now when I run the test from within u torrent.. click on the button and the page on opens up... and port forwarded shows red.


    Type :both
    ports 29343 :29343 (ext:internal)
    and ip

    2 seperate rules forwarding tcp&udp port 29343 to the two different ips.
    Note: both the laptops donot run utorrent togwther, and seperate rules.
    After doing this.. why does utorrent say port not forwarded...??
    Help appreciated.

    I may be wrong, but I do not think you can forward one port to 2 different destinations. Try forwarding that port only to one computer at a time and be sure that the Windows firwall (or other software firewall) also has an exception created for that port or for microtorrent.

    Not sure if that's a typo, but the IPs in your rules don't match the IPs on your network.

    I'm also not sure you can forward the same port to two different IPs. Maybe the ambiguity is easier to see if you imagine forwarding port 80 to two different web servers on your network - in this scenario which one would respond to requests from the WAN?
