Hey guys I'm having some hassle getting a fileshare program running properly.

I'm on a wireless network and I was wondering if anyone knew much about port forwarding?

I think that this is the problem, but I'm not definite - I can connect and see files, but can never manage to download them.

I'm getting pretty sick of having to send stuff to my other computer via MSN.

If you're on a wireless router, most likely you will have to forward to the port(s) to your internal IP address. Go into the router configuration page, and find something listed as Port Forwarding. You will also want to set yourself up with a static (internal) IP address.

I can help you better with some more information...

What program are you trying to use?
What make/model of wireless router/AP do you have?

My IP is 10.0.0.3

Some more information I've been told about :

Origin address: public address/interface
Origin Port: 6346
Dest IP: 10.0.0.3
Dest port: 6346

The port the program uses is 6346, if you hadn't guessed :)

you should beable to access your router control panel using an ip address, read your router manual to find it out then change settings in there.

Firstly I will presume you have tried the previous advice. Much of the Internet nomenclature has its origins in documents called RFC and these specify the function of the Internet world includingb your private LAN using the 10.0.0.0 private address range. Much of the configuration has been simplified but often you will need a basic understanding of what is happening. Your manual may not be sufficient and you should do a search on the net for say port forwarding router configuration. These should find you some description that explains the basic processes it is doing

Mine isn't on the list but I sent all the details they need to get mine on there about 3 months ago.

They're really quick workers ...

Ok...so why don't you try and give me some more info...

You said your router Make is Belkin....what Model # is it??

Also...you say you can see the files but can't download them...what happens when you try to download them...do you get an error message...if so what is the error message? or does just nothing at all happen??

Also what OS are you using on both the computers...

and are both the computers connected wirelessly or is either one connected to the router via a cable??

are you using any firewalls?

is the belkin the only router on your network? or do you have another router connected somewhere in the network?


once I get this info then we can figure something out...
