FIREWALLED

Why does my profile now say that when I log in? I am trying to seed some material and download other and I lost power last night, is that why?

Re: FIREWALLED

Check with canyouseeme.org and see if it says you are firewalled. If not, try stopping your torrents here and restarting them and the firewalled sign should go away.

Re: FIREWALLED

if i restrict the upload limit on any torrent in Azureus i suddenly show here at the TTD as "Firewalled".
Although i am not firewalled, limiting the upload stream on a torrent seems to tell TTD that i am.
When i re-set the upload limit to Unlimited, the "Firewalled" message here at TTD disappears.

i think that might be the answer to Buckeyedog's question.

Re: FIREWALLED

Really? That's odd because the tracker only checks to see if you are firewalled when you first connect to the tracker. It doesn't check everytime you talk to it. So, the notice should not be appearing and disappearing without you stopping and starting your torrent.

Re: FIREWALLED

I sometimes get the firewalled notice also. I just stop my torrents and restart them. Basically the server tries to initiate a sock connection with you when you first connect. If it doesn't get a response right away, it figures there is a problem and lists you are unconnectable/firewalled.

Re: FIREWALLED

Remember that it doesn't matter what TTD says about whether you are firewalled or not. It is really the bittorrent client that determines this as it tries to connect you to other users. So, if you are getting remote connections in your bittorrent client, then you are fine.

Re: FIREWALLED

Can someone help me figure out how to port forward my mac pro with airport wireless? Whenever it goes through the airport it sees me as firewalled, even though I have security set to none. I can hook straight into my modem & no firewall at all. Help....
It sucks because I download like a speed demon, & it uploads like s%^t.
It's Killing my percentage.

Re: FIREWALLED

Forwarding your ports is not necessarily going to change your upload speed. All forwarding your ports does is allow you to connect to firewalled users instead of just non-firewalled users.

Have you looked at this? http://www.portforward.com/english/r...outerindex.htm

Re: FIREWALLED

How can one Super seed a torrent, say 500kbs +any possibilities?
I would like to be able to massively seed to catch my ratio up over the next year.

Get a seed box (google it) or upgrade your regular internet package to get a faster upload rate.

Re: FIREWALLED

I try & seed till no one is leeching, unless I run out of storage.
How does one create a torrent for upload, I have a few other sources, now & I would also like to up new content to TDD.
I know I am a total Dumbass about these things.
