Having a problem with upload stream after downloading torrent.I just downloaded Little Feat Pink Pop Fest DVD.I checked the peer list and not firewalled.I presently am not using a router,just a modem with windows xp and bit tornado.This problem just started occuring.The indicator light is green and uploading at 60 kb for a minute or two than goes red and back to zero and then goes green and then back to red.Must I forward my ports and what numbers are best?....Thanks

well on that torrent 87 people are trying to feed one leecher so it stands to reason you won't get much chance to upload. I may jump on and catch a quick ride.

Same thing used to happen to me until I updated to BitTornado 3.18. It has encryption capability which fights Comcast's attempts to throttle or limit bittorrent activity. I use the default encryption settings and am now able to upload after completing a torrent. Use ports above 50,000. The defualt ports (6881-6889) are now known to be used for BT by ISP's, so they limit them. Just check that Windows Firewall is not blocking you (Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Exceptions). It should have btdownloadgui in the list. Make sure it is checked. I don't think you have to forward your ports because you are not using a router.
