How to Configure Port Mapping?
The act of passing data on the forwarded port from one network device to another. 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. Torrent Downloader Free works far better when it can connect freely to other peers. Blocked or reduced access to other peers will adversely affect the download speeds a user can expect to achieve.
"Basic Options" and in "Port Mapping" tab, there are 3 options are
ticked by default. You can uncheck them if you have to but it is
suggested that you keep them checked:
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.
