Some guys on this forum are suggesting to use port forwarding to use torrent and P2P programs. But I read somewhere that the MTNL router doesn't block any ports. I get a decent speed in bearshare and limewire. Also I started using a Bit comet yesterday but the average speed I got was 10 KB/s during the night. Is this because my ports are blocked or because there were only a few seeds / peers available. Is anybody using torrents and p2p programs without any port forwarding? Also is there any change required in the windows firewall?
