    Hi,
    I see only 10 possibilities to forward a port in my router config. But this is not enough for me. What could I do?

    You could bind them together. For example dont use single lines for individual P2P programs like:

    Torrent 50000-51000
    Edonkey 51001-52000
    dc++ 52001-53000

    Instead use one single line for all P2P programs:

    P2P 50000-53000

    I dont use p2p filesharing clients, but i have a sip-, http-, ssh-, ftp-server and sometimes game-servers running. 10 ports are a insufficient number :-( and I dont see any problems to add this by linksys into the router. I hope this will be added with a comming release.

    the P2P programs were just an example.

    Jeto,

    You can also use port triggering. I have read that this is safer option to port forwarding. I am using port triggering for MSN Messenger.

    Cheers,
    PRI
