rtorrent no connections


Since last night I have lost no download / upload ability with rtorrent. Every torrent I try just sits there. Checking the log this is what I get:

Code:
(18:19:57) Incoming connection from 90.24.232.21:2117
(18:19:59) Incoming connection from 84.100.130.165:3086
(18:20:00) Outgoing encrypted connection to 213.44.90.134:14530
(18:20:01) Handshake failed: 213.44.90.134:14530 - Network error
(18:20:05) Handshake failed: 81.48.189.97:2378 - Network error
(18:20:11) Handshake failed: 83.177.210.66:55319 - Network error
(18:20:22) Incoming connection from 81.56.36.60:55417
I installed SSH last night, not sure if that could have affected rtorrent.

Any help to troubleshoot this would be appreciated

Have you opened ports 6881-6889 in your firewall/router?
You might have iptables installed and running by default (some distros do). You might have to tell iptables to open those ports.

I am using another port range and they are all set up ok. In fact Deluge runs a treat. It is just rtorrent is playing dead. 0 up and 0 down.

I have no firewalls or iptables installed. In fact it was working a treat last night. This morning nothing. I don't know where to go from here to troubleshoot it further.

danielph - I'm curious to know if you figured this one out?

I've searched (for more hours than you'd like to know) for a solution to the same problem you describe.

I get loads of incoming connections (handshake_log=yes) but only a very few of them ends up with a success. Outgoing connections seems to be another issue though - they are mostly accepted.

Another strange thing is, "network error" occurs only a fraction of a second after the incoming connection. They are usually sequential lines in the handshake log even with a storm of connections coming in. There's no timeout, something immediately decides to stop it.

I've had rtorrent up on a different (Debian) server before - it worked like a charm. I think that was an earlier version. This time I'm on Gentoo and rtorrent 0.7.9 / libtorrent 0.11.9 - ebuilds.

I've read somewhere that there was an compiler optimalization issue, related to hash checking I think, so I've even compiled rtorrent with -O1 and -march=i386 in a desperate attempt to understand what's going on. Changed nothing, as far as I could see.

So- any advice is highly appreciated. I want more peers!

magge - I must confess that I took an easy route here and started using another (not so lightweight) client. I started using KDE again and actually liking it and hence use ktorrent.

I just tried rtorrent again today and it was not giving me good results. I am not sure where the problem lies. I am on version 0.7.7. I do have a difficult ISP that blocks torrent data. ktorrent seems to cope better and has consistently given me good speeds up and down. So for now, while acknowledge that rtorrent is a great client, I am sticking with ktorrent.

Good Luck. If you do find something useful be sure to post.

have you guys tried editing your 'other' programs like pg2?

you could either turn that off or edit your blocklist in order to enable access of incoming/outgoing connections. yes turning it off would completely contradict the purpose of the program, hence you need to edit your list. had the same problems, did it my way and started working again.
well hope that helped.
cheers
