Now i’ll give a walkthrough on how to manually perform port forwarding for Bitcomet for users who have BSNL broadband in India. These are the steps I followed and you can follow to increase download speed for Bitcomet:

  • Do not use default IP address 192.168.1.1
  • Set up a static IP address.
  • Go to the router page by typing the url http://192.168.1.1.
  • Enter username and password as admin.
  • Click on “Virtual Server”under “Advanced” on the router page.
  • Type the name of the application in the box. (Limewire or Bitcomet or any other name)
  • Type the static IP address in the box below.
  • Select protocol type as “Both”.
  • Now type the port number that you would like to forward.
  • Port number 6882 is recomended for Bitcomet but you can choose any port you like.
  • Click “Apply” and restart the router.

Now you need to configure the port settings for Bitcomet

  • Start Bitcomet.
  • Goto Options->Preferences.
  • Under preferences select Connection.
  • Set download and upload limits to “no limit”.
  • Under “Listen on port” type the same port number as the one you typed while on the router page.
  • Click “Ok” and close the screen.
  • Next goto “Advanced” and select “Connection”.
  • Uncheck the box which says “Enable uPnP”.
  • Click “ok” and you are all set.
  • Restart Bitcomet and if the settings worked you should see a green button at the right hand bottom corner of Bitcomet screen. It will show you your IP Address.
