You can only open ports on a router. No router no access to ports. You would need to talk to your isp though I doubt if the port(s) are blocked that they will open them for you.

Are you sure they are blocked?

If you have to open a port locally on your computer, you have to do this in the personal firewall, if installed, or in the windows firewall.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!
Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

Good point Paulsep

•A BitTorrent client normally associates the TCP port number 6881. However, if this port is busy for some reason, the client will instead try successively higher ports (6882, 6883, and so on up to a limit of 6999). In order for outside BitTorrent clients to reach this one, they must be able to connect to the correct port.

These would be the ports to open
