firewall settings in p2p progs.

Recommended Posts

When using progs. such as Shareaza and Safe Soulseek, you are told that as you have a firewall, downloads will be slow.

 

Is it best just to accept that your downloads will be slow, or can you safely change your firewall settings, if so, how?

Yes, i agree, it doesn't tamper with the speed of your downloads. By the way, its just Soulseek, I used the emphasis of Safe so that everyone understands why I advertise it so much!

The only firewall issues I ever had with a p2p app was many years ago using Napster, and that was the last time I used a p2p program. Several firewalls would block other users from downloading files from my system even after I configured (or mis-configured) the firewall to allow downloading from my system. I personally never had any download speed issues with a firewall.
