Need ports for these P2P apps...

On most good P2P apps, you can change the ports it uses in the options (you certainly can with LimeWire and Shareaza). Just look around in the options, eg. it's Shareaza Settings -> Internet -> Connection, just change the port number in the Inbound Address tab.

What I do is forward a large block of ports to my PC (I've got 2 blocks of 30), and set all my apps to connect using these ports instead of the defaults. This way I know exactly what ports are forwarded, and don't have odd ports lying around going into my PC that I've forgotten about. Smiley
