Thomson Speedtouch 536 (ADSL modem)

HELP! ME!!!

I know ive ignored this subject for too long and its been on my mind ever since i changed from 56k --> ADSL. Now i got decent speeds (55kbps down15kbps up) yeh yeh my upload sux big time... Anywhooo... this is the problem:

Verizon does not support us in anyway shape or form in what "opening ports" subject has to offer... all they say when you call them is go to www.portforward.com and open up "1" port at a time :evil:

I dont want to open 1 port i want them all open i want to manage my internet conection incoming and outgoing signals with my firewall not my modem... I mean why should it? i really dont need or want that feature (what ever it is)

All i want is the ability to sit down my computer download anything from the internet lets say zSNES+Killer Instinct and tell a friend "Dude!!! im sooo gonna kick your ass in KI here is my IPport come to me"

Is it too much to ask for?

~Thx in advance for your help it would really mean alot to me if i can put this topic finally to a rest. PS: Verizon had some VPPT tunneling or something like that that would open all the ports for me without me doing lots of work but they shut this feature down.

Do start -> run -> "cmd /k ipconfig /all", if yours isn't 10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x or 172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255 all your ports are most likely open already. I suspect that you don't have a router so the point its moot.

Well log into the router gui and port forward to what ever IP. You could put it in the DMZ, but thats a bit suicidal unless you know what your doing.

DMZ? dude all i want is:

"Every port from 1-65555 sent straight to my computer and not my modem"

The portforward website is broken for my model i pick my brandmodelseries and the guide images dont correspond to what i see... in other words they series they say its mines (536) isnt.

Uh, that's exactly what a DMZ is. You'll just have to look through the router interface and use some common sense to find the right settings.

With my ADSL router I was able to configure it to work in Bridging mode. Had to install a DHCP client on my proxy box, and wait an hour or so for the router's own lease to time out, but after that it was all good. Main reason for me to want it in bridging mode is that I don't trust that box, and I want full control over my own connection thankyouverymuch.

I think you are looking for a DMZ (demilitarized zone) option, but this is usually a bad idea. If you want to open just a few ports or a short range, your router should have some setting for that. This is much safer than then completely opening your computer to attacks by script kiddies worldwide. I check my router's logs often, and I usually get two or three port scans a week. This most likely will also happen to you, and you can expect some attacks on your open ports.

Even though it may be tedious, just take the time to forward _only_ the ports you _need_ opened.

mehh script kiddies whats the worst it could happened? :lol: last time when i had all my ports opened i received a free rootkit from some newb across the net... of course Norton picked it up right away so i ended up with my new free rootkit + the email and password he was using to store the passwords... and yes i did go on that email but i only got a battle net account for diablo & SC.

Any who, i think with a decent firewall + avast ill be able to manage my self... But i couldn't find this "DMZ" settings anywhere and this restriction im getting over my own box is just not what i want at this point in my life.

If anyone would want to take a closer look into my router settings ill gladly add em to my msn.

PS: Let em try hack me... ill have fun chasing them down and getting my rusted techniques back in shape. Sorry for the delay but i had my last final exam yesterday and i was tiiirrreddd :S but now i hope we can get this matter solved.

(start of conversation) You are an idiot. (end of conversation, if this was a place in RL, I would have had to leave. If this where shmoocon, I would have filled a shmooball with water, and use a air canister to fire it at you)

Sparda, If this would be "RL" and you were right in my face. I assure you, you would be left without the 8 front teeth of your slithery mouth.

Once that was done, i would not leave ... i would make sure you wont be recognizable anymore.

And if this would of happened in my house-con, i would of filled you up with gasoline and put a match on you.

I am dead serious.

PS: If you do want to confirm this is not bs, ill give you my phone number so we can have a more intuitive dialog and hopefully a nice-old meeting. Sucks to pick the wrong dude at the wrong time... huh?

The best way to assure favor and help on a problem is to spend an entire post ripping at those responding to your thread. Sparda can say whatever the hell he thinks about your problem, and you can disregard it, as is your problem that you are trying to fix. But after you start turning your thread into a flame war, most willing to help will now disregard what you have to say.

...dude you're a prick

as much as I'd like to see this...I gotta help the n00b... he's much more likely to come over to your house with a loaded gun then bare hands...

and sparta's right you are an idiot

...and if you can't port froward/DMZ your computer on your own do you really think we'll believe you can stop someone from root kitting you? or get back at them for doing it?

Oooh, threatening people other the Internet, that's definitely a sign that you're a big man. And such a sense of proportionality too, threatening immolation because someone called you an idiot, which you obviously are judging by your response.

wow, u can stop a rootkit, yeah i use a firewall / Malware protection tools to, though the difference is i didnt spend a shit load buying rip of software, nor did i do warez (coz we all know what thats for).

Then going on making ur self sound all leet? not knowing what a DMZ is for i doubt u know anythink about networks, its pretty much covered in all Network books / class's. so im thinking ur more the skiddies ur talking about.

If u dont want the answers posted in ur own Question, then dont ask us, learn the ways of google.

When did hak5 turn into a new IRC ??? :?

#1 - This is the same crap everyone hated from IRC... someone is majoring in computer science or what ever its called for the US and suddenly they think every person living and using a computer must know exactly the same amount of information about computers as them.

In reality IT DOES NOT HAPPEN THAT WAY.

#2 - Sparda cough me on a real fucked up time... and i truly he was a class 1 dick to me... If you didnt noticed... so yeah i flipped. And i am still 100% firm on my answer to him.

Sure over the internet... well thats where it happened. And guys like him were i live get fcked instantly for being dicks like that.... you think because you know more of a certain subject you can talk down to people? or make fools of them? well ... surprise surprise its not gonna work every single time.

#3 - fck google. Google gives shit answers every single time unless you speed HOOURS "Learning the ways of google". Everyone flames with that yet not even hak5 crew has done a decent episode dedicated in "showing the ways of google" so you can just lay that topic a rest.

#4- Rootkits, when i was more into computers... even a retard could make a rootkit. The problem was distributing it to as many people as possible (TY IRC for that) and in most cases you could use any hex editor to check out every single file you had for that kit and look for IRC channelsserversemail addresespasswords ...etc. So... at that time we used a decent firewall + hex editor (wich you can find that kind of info in plain text).

#5 - LEARN HOW TO READ. Stop skipping lines and going straight to the last post. The problem was never portforwarding and if at this point you are still talking about that then you are as newbie as me on this subject... as for DMZ i didnt find it on my router config... so what? sue me.

As for my problem fuck it. Ill work it out my self without having to deal with pricks like you sparda (the offer still stands).

And as for the rest of you... keep up the good-IRC flame war on newbs... and you will end up loosing more people per day. If you dont know the fcken answer and you cant explain it on a 3-4 line paragraph you are as ignorant as the person asking for a favor.

My advice if you dont know dont post. This "google-it" crap makes no scense. But hey, what ever its your life.

im out.

Ahh, ffs, this is the second thread today I've seen explode in a ball of flames. You wanna be the big man? Fucking ignore the posts that piss you off. People here did actually try to help you, and you got pissy.

You don't want the help, and don't want to look for the answers because you can't operate a search engine? Well screw you. This thread's obviously redundant, locked.

My apologies to Moonlit for interjecting in this closed matter, but if I see threats like this again you will be banned permanently without appeal or recourse.
