2010-03-30, 09:41 PM
i use Vuze as my torrent app on a mac. my ports are forwarded properly, but my upload speed is still slow. no difference in how many shows seeding or leeching, its the same - slow. icons are yellow most of the time. any help appreciated, i do have a router. thanks

i have tried everything wolf. it first said i was firewalled. fixed that and forwarded my ports. everything was fine. then lately the upload was going nowhere. i looked thru the dhcp for day before i asked in here. my torrents stay yellow and says it could be a NAT problem.

Are you OK on canyouseeme.org? And how about when you click on Vuze > NAT / Firewall Test - is that OK?

NAT/firewall test now says : error unable to bind TCP incoming server socket to 8080. address already in use.

when i hooked up my mac i was fine when it first started using Vuze on here. then all of a sudden we added a router and i was firewalled, noticed that when i logged on here. i read and forwarded my ports to 8080 and everything went well. now all of a sudden i have no upload speed lately. i ran the test before i tried playing with my port and it ran the test and said it failed. now it wont run the test when i reset my ports to 8080. is there a way i can find out which ports are not being used on my mac? gonna try canyouseeme now. the mac is not hooked up directly to the router or modem. if that helps at all. thanks lynne and wolf

Success: I can see your service on on port (8080)
Your ISP is not blocking port 8080

Most residential ISP's block ports to combat viruses and spam. The most commonly blocked ports are port 80 and port 25.

Port 80 is the default port for http traffic. With blocked port 80 you will need to run your web server on a non-standard port in conjunction with a port 80/web redirect from No-IP.com.

Port 25 is the default port for sending and receiving mail. ISPs block this port to reduce the amount of spam generated by worms on infected machines within their network. If you need to send legitimate email and your ISP blocks port 25. Consider the solutions from No-IP.com.

that is what it says from canyouseeme

so you only needed to change your port? this is good!
try a port above 45000 (unreserved)
example: set utorrent to 45645

8080 is a commonly used/scanned port (dont use it)

thank you for your time patience and chinese! i tried using one of the ports above 45000 and it always had a pop up stating that the port is in use. i ignored it this time and seems to be working. though my dnld torrent is still yellow. is that an issue or something to not be worried about? again thanks
