Help Setting Up Port!!!!!!! Please!!!!



Please help me! This is driving me nuts and I can't figure out why I can't get it to work? I'm trying to download legally recorded live concerts which I'm success at download while using the bit torrent downloader Vuze. However, whenever I try to leave that same torrent up for others to download, none of the peers can connect. I found a listening port and set it up through the firewall in the Ports and System Services and I still get an error when running a test through my torrent downloader.


This is the error message that I'm getting:

Testing TCP port 54971 inbound
Test failed: NAT test failed: Error: Connection timed out: connect
Check your port forwarding for TCP 54971
Testing UDP port 54971 inbound
