and i went here for opening ports

but got to the firewall and stopped

FM/ :slight_smile:

You post a bash script not the output from


Did you check if some firewall is active?
Did you try torrenting?
Did you start torrent from terminal?
Did you get error messages?


I Used Deluge for the torrent
and yes Firewall is updated and active

and i have no open ports

Why you post in GNOME when you use Cinnamon?

Restart your PC


Last but not least:


You have to open a port for Deluge in your gateway/router/firewall, not in Garuda. Garuda doesn't run a firewall on the OS by default.


ok, thanks

I downloaded Cinnamon and GNOME simultaneously.
Although I prefer Gnome, the USB somehow became corrupt, causing me to use Cinnamon when I actually prefer Gnome.

Sorry In My Head im using Gnome :grinning:

I appreciate you bringing that up.

Opening ports can be done automatically by most routers if you enable universal plug & play. It can be a security concern so I usually don't recommend that, but it would at least let you see if it's possible for you to connect to torrent networks.
