Can't get UDP to work for torrents



  • Hi.  I an using Vuze for torrenting.  I go to Help, NAT/Firewall test and it says it is using 15571 for TCP and UDP listen ports.  I setup NAT in pF:

    If
    WAN
    Proto
    TCP/UDP
    Src. addr
    *
    Src. ports
    *
    Dest. addr
    *
    Dest. ports
    15571
    NAT IP
    192.168.1.109
    NAT Ports
    15571
    Description
    Bittorrent

    The firewall rule is:

    Proto
    IPv4 TCP/UDP
    Source
    *
    Port
    *
    Destination
    192.168.1.109
    Port
    15571
    Gateway
    *
    Queue
    none
    Schedule

    Description
    NAT Bittorrent

    When I test TCP incoming, it works fine.  When I test UDP, it fails.  Both rules though are set for TCP/UDP, so I'm not sure why it would fail….?

    One thing I see not quite right is in your nat you have no dest address.  This should be your wan interface IP.

    see attached nat that works just fine with udp.  My ntp server is serving up lots of clients since it is a member of the ntp pool
