Trying to configure a port to use for Vuze. Using the NAT/server port test, I was getting a message saying the connection timed out, the port was probably closed. I went back and made sure to open the specific port on my router, firewall, etc, but now I'm getting "NAT Error - Usage limit exceeded (

I'm on a mac pro running leopard, trial versions of intego netbarrier and virusbarrier. Network utilities and netbarrier both claim the port is open. I've tested a bunch of other ports, but all give the same message.

It sounds like you are double natting. Are the router and the firewall both set to give out DHCP? – ridogi Nov 30 '09 at 7:43
what's the router make/model(/firmware)? – quack quixote Nov 30 '09 at 8:00
@ridogi - didn't even know the firewall could do that.. @quack - cheap Belkin...can look it up later, atm Vuze is working at full health for some reason, though the NAT/firewall test is saying the same thing...will have to look into it later – Kato Nov 30 '09 at 8:59
I think we need some specifics as to model and local IP address of the router, firewall, and computer to give us a more complete picture of your setup. – ridogi Nov 30 '09 at 20:42

Looks like your ISP is NATting you as well.

encryption turned on after a restart with the normal message about the ISP provider limiting bandwidth...could that be why it's working now? – Kato Nov 30 '09 at 9:02
@kato: perhaps your ISP is simply filtering out p2p traffic then :) – lorenzog Nov 30 '09 at 9:25
Not that you should even download torrents without encryption enabled. Even legal ones. – Malfist Jan 1 '10 at 15:46
