Question please help

Can somebody please tell me why this is happening?

Go to http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/...ad.php?t=41539 and click on "Last Few Who Completed" then click on "Full List Here". My name shows up in there about 7,000 times. Does anybody know why, and how I can stop it? Thanks

Re: please help

You are probably using a bittorrent client that does not conform to the bittorrent specs that were originally written regarding torrent clients. It probably announces more often than necessary and/or doesn't give all the information the tracker is expecting so it thinks you are a 'new' user everytime.

What client are you using? What OS? Azureus and uTorrent are both recommend since they work well with just about any tracker.

edit: oh wow, you aren't kidding! Could you have given out your personalized torrent? You are currently listed on that torrent under three different IPs (but all under an 'unspecified' client, which makes me think it is you but that something is wonky).

Re: please help

i am using uTorrent 1.6. I was told that 1.7 sends private information to other people, im not sure if that is true or not so i am sticking with 1.6. My OS is XP pro. I have also been having trouble forwarding my ports. I used the guides step-by-step, and i still cant get it.

It looks like it is changing your port every time, so you should set it to not do that which will also make it MUCH easier to forward your ports! You need to know what your port is in order to forward it. Also, as I said, your IP is changing all the time. Why is that?

No, your port number is definitely not always the same.

Re: please help

He's on random port, UTorrent gives you the choice of random port or a specific port. In UTorrent click options,
then perferences, then connection, you'll see it in the upper right corner. Hope this helps.
