Port Forwarding and DC++

Post by duddy11 » 2004-11-10 14:22

Hi, I am able to connect to my hub localy, but when I go in the other room where my laptop is, I try to connect to it (My laptop is wireless) But I cant. It says rejected by target computer, or something to that sorts.. on the serverr pc, Im running a Linksys Wireless B Router (for my laptop). When I go to ipconfig it says my ip address is 192.168.1.100. I think this is the reason why I cant connect. Is there anyone out there that has this router, and that can help me with IP Forwarding or Port Forwarding? Thanks guys! keep up the good work!

If you're trying to connect to your hub that is on your LAN, connect to the hubs local IP address (192.168.x.x) instead of the dynamic name.

As BSOD said, connecting to the local IP of the computer running the hub will work from any other computers sharing your router. Which addresses have you tried?

To allow outside users to connect to your hub, you'll have to forward the port # you set your hub to run on (411 by default) to the computer running the hub. The process is the same as setting up DC++ in active mode behind a router.
