Hi guys! So I am attempting to setup my Transmission bittorrent client with Transdrone (Transdroid) app on Android. I want to be able to use this android remote app to connect to my desktop (where Transmission is running) while I am connected to this VPN. So I: 1) Connected to a server (say Server A). 2) Configured port forwarding on AirVPN's site (AirVPN > Client Area > Forwarded ports). Let's say I forwarded port 7712 and 7713. 3) Logged into Transmission and set port 7712 as the Incoming port (Transmission > Preferences > Network) and made sure 'Pick a random port at startup' was unchecked. 4) Allowed remote access (HTTP) from port 7713 and configured username/password authentication. Made sure 'Only allow these IP addresses' was unchecked. 5) Then set my firewall to allow incoming connections from port 7712 and 7713 (TCP). * I DID NOT log into my router and configure port forwarding for these ports (or any for that matter). When I hit the 'Test Port' button (Transmission > Network) to test port 7712, it says 'Port is OPEN'. Cool. ----- So what is my post about? Well there are some instructions on this page that confuse the heck outta me: https://airvpn.org/faq/p2p/ I do not understand what is being communicated here... "If you forward a port for a p2p torrent client, do NOT remap it to a different local port and make sure that the torrent client port matches the remotely forwarded port number" - What is meant by "do not remap it to a different local port"? Am I supposed to log into my router and setup port forwarding for port 7712 & 7713? "do NOT forward on your router the same ports you use on your Bittorrent or eMule client (or any other listening service) while connected to the VPN" - Doesn't this contradict the previous instruction? What is the correct way to configure port forwarding so that my P2P client will work with my android remote app? (and seed)
