Outstanding!  I'll give it a try.  The time spent illuminating the issue 
with such clarity is much appreciated.

Best wishes,

JB

 OK, here's how you forward your ports, nice and easy:


 First, let's identify the router
 The router is a piece of hardware that looks like a relatively small
 box, it comes in various sizes but the kind used at home is generally
 half the size of a laptop (a big laptop).

 The router has a number of ethernet ports, the cables used to connect to
 such ports end in RJ45 connectors that look like a bigger telephone
 jack. Routers often have one or two relatively short and thick antennas,
 sometime they only have ethernet ports. The most common home routers
 have 8 ports but there are much bigger ones.

 Your router is placed between your PC and the 'internet outlet' in the
 wall, in the sense that the ethernet cable (internet wire) from the back
 of your computer connects to the router, and the router connects to the
 'internet outlet').
 Find the router and note its brand and model.
 If you use a wireless connection, the router will only have a cable to
 the wall outlet and not to the PC, but it can be easily identified
 anyway: it's the box that must stay turned on, or your internet dies :P
 Physically locating your router is useful if you don't have a manual.



 The web interface

 If you happen to have a manual for your router, find out how to access
 the web interface. If you don't have a manual go to the manufacturer's
 web page (hint: www.brandname.com ), look for your model and find the
 information.
 Generally, the web interface is found at the router's IP address on port
 80, that means: if your router's IP is 10.0.0.1, you will probably find
 the web interface pointing a web browser to http://10.0.0.1

 In some cases the web interface is on a different port rather than the
 default http port 80. If that's the case use :port# at the end of the IP
 address, example http://10.0.0.1:8800 if the port is 8800.




 Finding out your router's IP

 To figure out where to point your web browser, do the follwoing:
 On Windows: open a cmd shell (start  run  (type) cmd [enter] ) and
 type 'ipconfig /all' (no quotes)
 On Linux, and other *nix (probably even Mac): open a terminal and type
 'ifconfig -a'

 That will give you your own IP address. Your router is probably in the
 same range at -0 or -1, e.g. if your IP address is 10.0.0.137 your
 router is probably (but not always) at 10.0.0.0 or 10.0.0.1 (if this
 doesnt help, google probably will)




 Forwarding ports

 Web interfaces don't look all exactly the same so I can't walk you
 through the whole procedure, but with help of your manual or the
 manufacturer's website (and Google) you should be able to figure out
 what to do as long as you know exactly what you want to accomplpish,
 which in our case is:

 * Forward port (number/s) FROM (the router's IP) = TO (the PC's IP) for
 protocol UDP *

 ...which is pretty much all what this quick guide boils down to.
 The 'protocol UDP' thing means that you only need to select UDP and not 
 TCP.
 Hope this helps.

[freenet-support] connection assistance

2009-09-28 Thread Jonathan Bannister
I'm having diffuclty connecting.  Can you advise?

Unknown external address
Freenet was unable to determine your external IP address (or the IP address of 
your NAT-device or firewall). You can still exchange references with other 
people, however this will only work if the other user is not behind a 
NAT-device or firewall. As soon as you have connected to one other user in this 
way, Freenet will be able to determine your external IP address. You can 
determine your current IP address and tell your node with the 'Temporary IP 
address hint' configuration parameter. Also, it would be a good idea to forward 
the ports 61616 and 27307 (UDP) on your router to make it easy to connect to 
your node.

 I believe that if you go to http://www.whatismyip.com/ and put in that IP
 address that might help.
