Please check your firewall.

Does Phex have a little wall icon at the lower left corner of the window?

Windows Vista and Downloads
Yes I have a fireall displayed and I am unable to get rid of it. Any help would be much appreciated.

You need to let Phex through your firewall and forward it on your router.

If this sounds like mystical mumbo jumbo, please don't hesitate saying so.

As a start, this thread has some info to open a port:

Which port number did you try to open?

To find the Port number you need, just go to the network-panel. There on the left side below the list of connections you can see your IP and port (the port is the number after the colon (":").

"35018" is the port you need to open.

Phex chooses a random port on first run, so you can't just be blocked by blocking all connections to one single port (and so people can't just check if you have Phex running by connecting to your IP with a single wellknown port).

Ok, in the windows firewall the port is open, but my problem is the router, I canīt open the port in it. I donīt know to do it in ZyXEL modem/router
