View Full Version : Connection Limit Exceeded

2006-11-04, 05:13 PM
Was downloading fine all day then this pops up:

[5.0.0 2006-11-04 16:07:19] ERROR : bad data from tracker ('d1:failure reason74:Connection limit exceeded! You may only leech from one location at a time.e')

Only have one torrent, didn't change anything, what does this mean. Any help appreciated.

what BT client are you using?

From the FAQ:

What's happened is that the torrents didn't disconnect from the tracker correctly. So, the tracker thought you were still downloading/uploading on the shows and when you get to connection three for a torrent, it won't let you connect until the other connections get dropped. You can get through this problem in one of two ways.... a) simply wait and the tracker cleaner will delete the old connections within 30-60 minutes, or b) go to your profile (click on your name in this post > view public profile) and then on the right hand side next to 'Add to your Ignore List', it says 'Delete Ghosts'. Click on the 'Delete Ghosts' link and it will drop all your connections from the Peer List and you can go ahead and connect now.
