I want to use eMule 0.48a on my PC running Win XP Pro SP2. I know I must open ports for it in ZAISS (v 462). Now, I understand there are 2 methods of doing this: 1) Open the ports permanently (under general options), or B) configure ZAISS to allow eMule to open the ports (under specific program options) when required. Of the 2 methods, I feel that the 2nd is the more secure option.
I have set expert rules for eMule to allow it to communicate using the ports it needs - but it still cannot connect. I have searched in this forum for posts relating to eMule, but for the most part they are from about 2005 (and so are probably no longer relevant), or do not address my problem.
Please could someone give me some things to try to solve this problem?
