[HOWTO] port forward rules for P2P emule :-)

  • Hi all :)

    I wish to help other users to create correct rules for emule P2P program (the goal is obtain HIGH ID :-)
    I tested these rules with 2.3.2 version of pfsense… good luck :-p

    "Default scenario":

    MODEM <--> WAN [PFSENSE] <–> LAN0

    WAN has address
    LAN0 has address

    CLIENT1 has address

    On CLIENT1 we have emule (emule uses 2 ports):

    from emule menu --> options --> connection:

    TCP is 10991
    UDP is 7812

    you can change these port like you wish

    Well, we need to create a new rule for port forward:

    Firewall --> NAT --> Port Forward


    Interface: WAN
    Protocol: TCP
    Source: ANY
    Destination: WAN address
    Destination port range "OTHER" from port 10991 to "OTHER" port 10991
    Redirect target IP:
    Redirect target port "Other" 10991

    Save it!!! and do same thing with a new rule changing protocol (from TCP) to UDP and fill with 7812 port.


    Don't remember to check firewall on CLIENT1 (if there's ;-)
