hi guys -

really silly question, but on Transmission, does 'automatically map port' when ticked mean it will use the port i assign, or use a random one, and thus i need to untick it?

cheers

It uses the one you assign but avoids the need to setup port forwarding manually on your router.

In my case if I go to the port forwarding page on my router at http://192.168.1.1 it shows the port forwarded that matches the number specified in transmission.

Note you need to have a upnp compatible and enabled router
