How to Configure Port Mapping?

In most cases regarding Torrent Downloader Free, port forwarding refers to the forwarding of connections from a router to a specific computer attempting to listen on that port.

Port Mapping

Port Mapping

Enable UPnP port mapping

It allows Torrent Downloader Free to communicate with the router to forward a port without your manual intervention. Some devices do not support Universal Plug and Play (UPnP), so you might still have to forward your ports manually. Disable UPnP if that is the case.

Add Windows Firewall Exception

It allows Torrent Downloader Free to add an entry to the Windows Firewall exceptions list that lets it bypass the firewall. This is useful only if you actually have Windows Firewall enabled. Note that this option works only on operating systems released after (and including) Windows XP with at least Service Pack 2 (SP2) installed.

Enable DHT Network

It enables the Distributed Hash Table (DHT) if checked. You can also do this by right-clicking the DHT status in the main window status bar and selecting the corresponding option.
