    Is their any think funny in setting this up

    A friend it trying to use it, but it does not connect, his Son recommended it
    but I don't know if its been seen running as they are both on the same

    I did a test on my system and have no problems at all, I did nothing to my
    Router, but had to with eMule due to the port address used, I think it was
    referred to as port forwarding..

    I hated emule, even when i port forward and disbabled my software firewall,
    i was having troubles always connecting.

    downloaded limewire and get roughly 89-100KB for each download,
    and when i use bit torrent roughly 30KB.

    If your firend has a firewall or a firewalling router, he may have to open
    the relvent ports for the P2P traffic to pass in/out of his home network
    (even if it is just one PC).

    Usually you have to port forward something for p2p to work:
