View Full Version : Ports question

2005-12-06, 09:10 AM
Actually, I've got two questions:

1. When DLing, the port I'm using is shown in black on the torrent peer listing; some other peers are shown in red. What's the difference?

2. I've read comments about yellow and green lights, indicating port issues. Where are these lights to be found? I know there are lights used on BitTornado, but not on my current client - uTorrent.

All in all, I think I'm OK on the ports issue but would like to clear up the above. Thanks.

1. Those who's ports are in red are firewalled. Since your's in black, you are just fine and connectable to everyone.

2. The yellow and green lights they are talking about are shown in some clients. I know you get them in Azureus. Yellow typically means you have a NAT issue of some sort (firewalled). Green means you are good to go.

Thanks for the quick response. Looks like I'm good to go!
