-To get the best speeds, BitComet needs open listening port, just as most other P2P applications do. But if you are behind a router or use Windows Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) or you are behind a firewall, you might need to make some adjustments before you get rid of the infamous [[bitcomet_status_bar|yellow light]] and BitComet works as intended. Namely, you'll probably have to configure your router and/or firewall(s) in order to open the listening port of BitComet. In this topic we will discuss the configuration of the router (port forwarding) both automatic (through UPnP) and manual, to the end of opening a port in your router'​s firewall and forwarding it on the setup page of your router, for BitComet. Software firewall configuration (the one residing on your computer) is discussed in the next topic ([[create_firewall_rules|Create Firewall Rules]]).+To get the best speeds, BitComet needs an open listening port, just as most other P2P applications do.

 For the purpose of the following discussion we're going to assume that you use a topology similar to the one above (which is the most common). We'll also assume that both your devices are operating in "​router"​ mode. The "​listen port" collocation is to be understood as the port number you've set on the //​Options->​Connection//​ page of BitComet, under the "​Listen port" section. For the purpose of the following discussion we're going to assume that you use a topology similar to the one above (which is the most common).
