Dear Supporters, I am a total newbie in freenet. Every time I start freenet I get the alert that my node lies behind a NAT-device or a Firewall and that I should forward my port-Number 11833. After some discovery-attempts in the administration tool of my router I found out that there is actually a firewall running. I am able to reach and open some of the sites I want to, but frequently I get the message that a site seems to be unreachable, sometimes concerning a site that opens some minutes later. I am totally new in this subject and all my real-world-friends are no-techies and no-nerds, so I still have no "firends" in the sense of trustworthy nodes to connect with or in the sense of darknet-members. Might this be the reason why some sites are closed for me? Should I try to manipulate the router in order to "forward" or should I turn off the firewall? Or is freenet running properly and the seemingly closed doors seem so due to the restrictions a newbie in darknet with a fresh node has to come around with?
