I've downloaded and installed aMule 2.3.1 on:

1) an older machine running OS X 10.4.11 (8S165) PPC (Tiger)

2) a newer machine running OS X 10.6.8 (10K549) Intel (Snow Leopard)

My DSL modem is a 2Wire 27000HG-D purchased from "Quest  - CenturyLink"
DSL Speed Test:
Download Speed: 1254 Kb/s
Upload Speed:504 Kb/s
Latenency: 118ms
User's DNS:


Under OS X 10.4.11 (8S165) PPC (Tiger), users can create and set specific port rules within the OS X 10.4.xx built-in Firewall, in (aka System Preferences), under (Internet and Network) Sharing > Firewall, using the "New"  button. In the Port Name popup, I've set the following:


Specify a port on which you would like to receive networking traffic.
Other ports can be specified by selecting "Other" in the Port Name
popup. The enter the port name and a number (or a range or series
of port numbers) along with a description.

Port Name: Other
TCP Port Numbers: 4661, 4662, 4665, 4672, 25600
UDP Port Numbers: 4661, 4662, 4665, 4672, 25600
Description: aMule


In the online DSL settings page, I created rules:

Quest  Modem Configuration 2Wire 27000HG-D


Some Internet applications require certain ports to be forwarded.

Choose LAN Device
(I entered the ID)

2. Select a category on the left, then the application you would like to forward to the selected device.

Category                 Available Rules
User-defined         (I created the rule)

These are the rules I created and added:

Under Networks

I've got:

Servers (8)
Nodes (697)


However, I'm getting:

"ServerSocket.ccp(415): Warning: You have received LowID" and "KAD: Firewalled"

and a really slow connection.


Under OS X 10.6.8 (10K549) Intel (Snow Leopard),  in (aka System Preferences), under  Sharing , there is no Firewall Port configuration Port Name popup (Part of Apple corporate's idea of "Let's simplfy things even more?"); There is, in, under Security > Firewall, a button called "Advanced", that I selected "" in and then selected "Allow incoming connections".

I've set up aMule under OS X 10.6.8 pretty much the same as under OS X 10.4.11 (although, maybe I should use a different Nick?). has had zero success in making connections under OS X 10.6.8


It would appear that the way to go, might be to see if I can resolve the "ServerSocket.ccp(415): Warning: You have received LowID" and "KAD: Firewalled" issues on the PPC machine with OS X 10.4.11?

Or maybe the issues are with the 2Wire 27000HG-D (although I didn't see any specific issues listed for 2Wire 27000HG-D and aMule) or how things are routed with DSL via "Quest  - CenturyLink" and Eskimo North (although bit torrent and other programs don't seem to have a problem)?
