Hi everybody!!

I use Utorrent, it works well. I'm actually downloading Led Zeppelin's Earls Court 1975 show, na dutorrent says that I shared at least 2.12 GO, but my personal information is this site says that I've never shared anything...and it's very bad for my ratio!

Alors it says that I'm firewalled but I'm not

Thanks a lot!

Make sure you disable DHT in uTorrent. DHT allows you to share information with users and bypass the tracker (and thus your stats don't get updated). I see you currently uploading to one show (Blind Faith), unfortunately there are 4 seeders and 0 leechers, so you won't be uploading at all on that. Did you check your port at canyouseeme.org? If that says you aren't firewalled but it says you are here, just stop your torrents here, wait a few seconds and start them again and hopefully that fixes it. (However, the bt clients will decide if you are firewalled when they talk to each other - they don't care what our tracker thinks.)

Thank you! (it's been years that I use Utorrent, I've never had this problem!)

I've disabled DHT, we'll see what happens

Thank you again!

I've tried to Portforward but it's very very hard to understand...

canyouseeme.org will tell you if your port is forwarded correctly. So, look up what port number you are using in uTorrent, then go to www.canyouseeme.org (http://www.canyouseeme.org) and put the port number in there. If it says everything is fine, then you aren't firewalled. If it says it can't see you, then you are firewalled.



These are the links you want at portforward.com:
