Lightbulb Check the port or rely on UPnP / NAT-PMP

Firstly you need to make sure 6346 is indeed the port that gtk-gnutella will be listening to. By default, gtk-gnutella uses a random port initially. You can view the listening port in the Preferences / Network configuration tab. This is the port you need to forward (once randomly selected, it will remain stable until you change it).

Secondly, you need to know that gtk-gnutella supports both UPnP and NAT-PMP. Therefore, if you router has UPnP or NAT-PMP support, it will be much easier to enable that and let gtk-gnutella automatically install the required port mappings.
