    1111If you get the Message 'Port is closed'/'Port is Stealth' in the 'Ports' section of Transmission's preferences.

    13 === Port check website is down ===
     13==== Port check website is down ====
    1414Transmission needs an external site to check wether the port is open. However, if that site is down, Transmission has no way to check wether the port is open or not. If you suspect this is the case, go to [http://www.canyouseeme.org/ CanYouSeeMe.org].

    16 === UPnP / NAT-PMP ===
     16==== UPnP / NAT-PMP ====
    1717For UPnP/NAT-PMP compatible routers, make sure:
    1818 * UPnP/NAT-PMP is enabled. Consult your router's documentation for instructions. If your router doesn't support UPnP/NAT-PMP, you will have to forward manually.
     
    2121Note: NAT-PMP is only for Apple Airport routers.
    2222
    23 === Double NAT ===
     23==== Double NAT ====
    2424Another possible reason your port remains closed could be because your router is not the only device on the network which needs to be configured.
    2525
     
    3232Finally make sure your firewall is either disabled, or you have allowed Transmission's port. The firewall can cause the port to remain closed, even if it has been successfully mapped by the router(s).
    3333
    34 === ISP Blocking Port ===
     34==== ISP Blocking Port ====
    3535Though initially this was done to "combat viruses and spam", it is sometimes used to keep out "bandwidth hogs". Normally the default (51413) port is fine. However, it might be that an ISP does decide to block that port. In such a case it is recommended to pick a random number between 49152 and 65535. If you can't find a port that's open (check with [http://www.canyouseeme.org/ CanYouSeeMe.org]), you have a different issue.

    37 === LAN ISP ===
     37==== LAN ISP ====
    3838eg. Universities, Wifi hotspots, RV parks and some 'true' ISPs (common in Rome, Italy).
