BT Home Hub 3 Port Forwarding Question


[link to this post]
 
HI folks,

I posted a thread a while ago about some messages I was having and it turned out that turning off UPnP sorted this out.

So, today I am downloading a torrent and I notice that uTorrent reports my incoming TCP port is working correctly......

Can someone explain how this is happening even though I do not have port forwarding set up for any ports and I have UPnP turned off?

That don't seem right, try this to see how good the firewall is ... https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

Make sure your router is not responding to pings, you should be getting a stealth result if your firewall is good.

EDIT: Are you referring to the tick at the bottom right, that goes on anyway even if ports are closed, on utorrent try options>setup guide (ctrl+G) and run the network test.
