    I mean how to test whether receiving is blocked on a particular tcp port (in this case 8905) or not .

    @zsoltpardi
    @yogk This tool at http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/ should display "Port 8905 is open on xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" the x is your Ip Address

    I will be online for awhile if anyone wants to test their streembit

    @mschwab56
    @yogk @logicalpath I have tested Streembit with @zsoltpardi and another person and all of the features are working for us. Let me know if you want to test again today if you got your ports open. If you are unable to get the port open you could use the Websocket fallback.

    Hello
    port 8905 is blocked
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    Ok what all have you tried to get it open?
    Eddie Dickey
    @logicalpath
    I enabled upnp - that did not help
    Im going to do port forwarding next
    I dont see where the port is acutally blocked
    in the router/cable modem
    Marc Schwab
    @mschwab56
    ok great! I had trouble with mine as well, for some reason unless I had a static IP it would forward the port

    @logicalpath
    comcast?

    @mschwab56

    got it to work - with port forwarding - putting that here for the record

    @yogk
    with the tool http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/,
    i get "Port 8905 is closed on 1xx.5.1xx.3". I will have to now check how can i open this port 8905. But even the standard http tcp port 80 also shows as closed, then how can i receive web data if its closed.

    @yogk You can receive data over the HTTP protocol in your browser because the browser app sends data to the listening port in the web server as a TCP client, and then it receives the message back on the very same socket. So that is a send-receive topology on the TCP client socket. In order to receive data over the HTTP protocol (browser) you don't need a TCP listener, but you use a TCP client. (See my post and proposal about the WS problem in the Google group, which describes how to use such TCP client). So to get web data in your browser you never open a listening port. So don't be confused from that TCP client and TCP listener sockets are different things. For a P2P application you need a TCP listener socket. What you wrote clearly indicates that your TCP listener is not operational. I suggested this could be the issue. If you forward your port on your router then the Streembit client will be reachable by other peers. Thanks for trying :-) let us know if you need anymore help.

    Here is a blog I wrote with some port forwarding tips. Hope this helps https://deardolphinblog.wordpress.com/2016/07/05/port-forwarding-tips/ @yogk

    I cloned the code from here: https://github.com/streembit/streembit
    Information in README is confusing and inaccurate
    Thanks a lot!
    I think this infor should be added to the official README.md

    @zsoltpardi
    @drasko Thanks for pointing this out. We will try to improve the Readme as soon as it is possible.

    @zsoltpardi I tried streembit by running the exe file provided, however i am getting upnp port mapping error, for which i have disabled my firewall, even though i am getting this error. Please tell me where i am going wrong and what should i do next?
