  • Open Stealth ports?

    I ran a Sygate stealth scan and discovered all my ports are blocked (stealth). I don't want this. I use bittorrent to download files ,and it is slow. I believe it is because my ports are blocked. How can I open them? I have Windows Xp, and I'm using the windows firewall. Under advanced settings in the Local Area Connections I added ports 6881-6889 to the list of services I want internet users to access. I don't have any other firewall. My roommate hooked up Linksys to my computer for his wireless use. Could this be a problem as well? I would give more information if I knew what to provide, so if anyone is knowing and willing to help me it would be apperciated. Thank you.

    The linksys router uses NAT which will stealth the ports.

    You'll need to forward the ports to your internal IP address.
