    You tried the virtual server option in the web interface I guess?

    you can try ip-tables, it just hard-codes it directly in to the firewall
    vi /tmp/local/sbin/post-firewall
    the usual iptables script:
    (if you have "iptables -D INPUT -j DROP" and "iptables -A INPUT -j DROP" don't add them again)
    #!/bin/sh
    # deleting last firewal rules (policy)
    iptables -D INPUT -j DROP

    # Standard open ports
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 51413 -j ACCEPT #opens up tcp port 51413

    # Restablishing INPUT chain policy
    iptables -A INPUT -j DROP
    ofc, if you never enterd any code make it executable:
    chmod +x /tmp/local/sbin/post-firewall
    and save + reboot:
    flashfs save && flashfs commit && flashfs enable && reboot
    done

    Oh rlea?
    I just tried with the best scanner online:
    Scanning ports on 90.194.116.132

    90.194.116.132 is responding on port 51413 ().
    works great!
    try this: http://www.t1shopper.com/tools/port-scanner/

    anyway, you shouldn't portscan it from your local network, that just doesn't work

    so long the older version is still available...
    ipkg remove transmission
    ipkg install http://ipkg.nslu2-linux.org/feeds/op...2-1_mipsel.ipk
