All ports listed
here have to be opened in the firewall’s rule set. As most
Windows firewalls are application based you can save yourself some
trouble by adding a rule which allows the eMule.exe all UPD,TCP traffic
on all ports in all directions. This will not compromise your security,
as no exploits of eMule are known so far.
- ZoneAlarm is reported to cause problems with eMule. It is not
recommended. Nice and free firewalls are Kerio Personal Firewall and
