Azureus. Health=Red Smiley.


Azureus was working last week. I tested it and TCP is being forwarded but when I try to download anything I get the old red smiley. I can't connect to any trackers. I am not running a firewall on my host so why can't I connect to any trackers?

I am using the SuperNova pay site.

maybe the problem is with SuperNova ? you could use another site to make sure like torrentspy.com

The Red Smiley is mostly due to firewall , port forward problem . you could check your router configuration

Thanks.

I have my router set up to forward port 6881 and the Azureus configuration wizard shows that TCP connections are working. I'll try another torrent site and see if it works.

Nope, I can't connect to any tracker anywhere. I have checked and checked and read and read, I cannot figure out what the problem is.

I reset port forwarding, rebooted my router and modem and now I get "Cannot test this port. Port is already in use. Stop any torrent downloads and restart Asureus." The port is open, I'm not downloading anything. My router is setup right. I am not running a firewall on the system. What gives? Maybe I should try another client.

Could my ISP be blocking Bittorrent ports?

Is anybody there?

just 2 things:

-1 see if your ISP allocate you a limit of down/uploads...
-2 i use Azereus every day and i can garanty that it works perfectly maybe the trackers of your files are down for any reason.....
the suprnova site is down....they have create torrent clliente with their searchtracker thing...

i guess that's all ive to say.

I tried several Bittorrent sites including Mandrake. I guess I just can't use Bittorrent.

Thanks for the help.
