    error: bad net address setting

    I just hooked up my router and am not sure if this error was coming up before. If it is because of my routers firewall what can I do to fix it, I'm new to this hardware firewall stuff.

    TIA

    It could be that your router is not passing traffic on the ports that FaH uses outside your firewall.

    I am not sure what type of firewall you use but with an old router of mine I had to open up specific ports to allow FaH to get work units. I don't remember the exact port anymore but maybe someone else does.

    It could still be that the server is just down at the moment and when it comes up you will be fine.

    Sorry I am not much help on this but the last time I messed with this was quite a while back.

    I'm using a netgear rp114, and F@H is the only thing I'm having problems with. I've tried F@H with my firewall settings and without them. Still no good.

    ok apparently it's the server, I unhooked the router and went directly through the modem and still got the same error. BUT, when I ping teh ip of the server I get replies. why ?? I don't understand.

    Sounds like a server is down.
