Re: firewalled

You might try stopping and then starting your torrent again. Sometimes when the tracker is busy, it give a false 'firewalled' initially.

Re: firewalled

Do a NAT check: http://btfaq.com/natcheck.pl and if you don't pass there, then something has changed on your end.

Re: firewalled

What changed recently to suddenly make you firewalled?

Does your modem act as a firewall? Try using other ports (like 50000-50010) since some ISP have caught on and are throttling known p2p ports.

Re: firewalled

You said you used to not be firewalled. Has something changed since then? Have you verified that your ports are forwarded through any sort of firewall you use (XP firewall? Antivirus protection?)

Re: firewalled

barley, it might have been that you connected when the tracker was a bit busy and you got a false firewalled. I looked you up on a couple of torrents and you are fine on all but one (the Al DiMeloa one). I would guess if you stop and then start that one, you won't have the firewalled under your stats any longer.
