Re: Firewall Issues?

Sorry I can't be of more help, but I don't use a PC.

It's actually way worse (IMO) to be a firewalled leecher than seeder because the pieces you give out aren't being shared amongst the leechers, thus the burden on the seeder is that much bigger. To avoid this I would try superseed mode, but that will go really slowly especially with all the firewalled leechers.

Re: Firewall Issues?

Toadinohio, are you sure you are firewalled? All you've said is that you aren't connecting to all the peers available and sometimes that is just the way it is (there is also a setting in some clients to sets the max amount of peers to connect to).

Re: Firewall Issues?

Ah, OK. I must have missed that part (or seen it and it didn't register, or....). Actually, I just reread his two posts and I still don't see him actually say he is for sure firewalled - just that he isn't connecting to all the available peers/seeds/leechers.

Anyway.... you say you've tried several different ports. Are you making sure that when you change the port you want to use, that you are changing it in your bittorrent app, your XP firewall, your router, and Norton (not sure if you have to change it specifically in Norton since I don't use that).

NAT check available here: http://btfaq.com/natcheck.pl

Re: Firewall Issues?

I'll give that a try when I get back home tomorrow and report back.
Thanks everyone for trying!
also I am using super-seed.
I figured that would at least get another seeder a bit faster.
Thanks again-I just wanna share damnit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Firewall Issues?

Well I tried with two torrents running on seperate ports.
1st result
Fail!
Unable to connect. This likely means you need to adjust your port forwarding configuration, or there is no client running on that port.
2nd result
Fail!
Unable to connect. This likely means you need to adjust your port forwarding configuration, or there is no client running on that port.

I don't understand why I would even have a router as I am the only cpu in the house and on the modem.
I set the port forwarding for all the ports that I have Bit Torrnado running on.
Some people get files from me, some don't.
I may try calling verizon but from past exp. w/ tech people more often than not they have no idea what I'm talking about or are of no help.
BLAHHH

Re: Firewall Issues?

I also am having a firewall issue, hopefully someone can read help me out if they read this. All of a sudden my work computer is firewalled. I work at a small store, we are not on a network of any kind. I also hae no router, justm ymodem, i'm on a dsl connection here. I don't have any firewall software, and the XP firewall is disabled. This is a recent issue, so I've pretty much stopped downloading here, and it sucks. If anyone has any ideas on what I could check, it would be a great help thanks

Jon
