Just answer the firewall's question.

If the firewall asks to allow such, you answer yes.

If you answered no, then google your question. I would google this question to follow.

Opera is allowed in Firewall but Bittorent still blocked.

I have allowed Opera in the firewall. It's the bittorent ports for Opera that need to be allowed. I have googled "How to configure Windows firewall for Operar Bittorrent." and similar searches with no luck.

Then you need an Opera forum.

Keep in mind that no support for torrents is found here. Or rather, you can ask but I've yet to see anyone offer answers to torrent issues here. I can't guess why that is.

I ran into a fellow last week that detailed a slew of torrent issues but then he told me what he was torrenting. Since it was a movie in the theaters we knew why it was giving trouble. He was still clueless.

Legal downloads.

I do not do any a legal downloads with torrents I just download Linux and other open source software using torents. Bittorent is a internet protical like all other internet services can be used for legal and a legal purposes.

Neither did I.

In reply to: Legal downloads.

But your post and why wouldn't I believe you tells my it's the Windows firewall. I'm going to believe you and not ask about the router firewall.

Besides, you can use other torrent software and again I BELIEVE WHAT YOU WRITE that it's only the Opera issue. So go to the right forum to get the best help.
