liquidmetal Posted July 2, 2006 Share Posted July 2, 2006 I just have some questions that mainly go into the Preferences of Bitcomet, and because I have no idea what a lot of them mean, it makes it hard for to select the one thats right for me. I didn't just run straight into this forum, I did a fair bit of reading and searching, but no real answers to my questions. I am running Windows XP Professional, my internet connection is firewalled, I have a DSL broadband connection allegedly at 1.5 Mbps. 1. First off when I installed Bitcomet, NIS warned me that Bitcomet was trying to access the internet and I said 'Allow Always', but when another dialog box popped up (not from NIS) telling me Bitcomet wants to view or confiqure my firewall, I said no. Is this ok? 2. What is the Listen Port exactly? When I selected it, it said that DHT network was connected and then Bitcomet started downloading and uploading when nothing was on my Transfer list! Why does it do this? What is DHT network? Is it better to have the Listen Port selected or No listening mode? 3. What does 'Enable NAT/Firewall Configuration ICS/ICF' mean? 4. What does 'Enable UPnP Port Mapping' mean? 5. What does 'Remove Port on NAT/Firewall' mean? 6. What does 'Enable reporting LAN IP to tracker mean? 7. What does 'Enable IP filter file: ipfilter.dat' mean? 8. What does 'Max sessions per IP for downloading task' mean? I don't know what other options mean aswell, but I thought these would be the most relevant. Thanks guys, any questions you can answer is great.
