Unhappy Port just can't decide weather it's open or closed.


[mod_edit]RL removed[/mod_edit]
as you can see I am only getting 4.7kb/s, dispite there being 31 or so Seeders. The port is just opening and closing it seems, I have no idea why though.
The port was opened both with firestarter (which isn't supposed to be firewalling ATM) and "sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 6884 -j ACCEPT"
It was also opened under the 'Application Sharing' menu of my router.

There are no seeders, it's a direct download site !

You seem to have mis-understood me. That is a video of me testing the port's open(ness?) I hosted it on Megaupload for pure convenience.

You download from seeders - you are messing with the incoming port. That's for incoming requests.
Sometimes torrents are slow.

Sorry about the mistake, but I'm sick of maximised casino spam.

So... port-forwarding and torrent speed are not connected?
...There's no outgoing port?

they are connected in the sense that if you allow incoming connections you get a better share. But it's up to others to try to connect to you, and since you have use random port checked, maybe each incoming connection is on different ports, and so be getting blocked. But I've had downloads less than 10k/s with 150 seeders listed. Just because they're listed doesn't mean you're connected to them. Try another torrent and see if the speed changes. Maybe your ISP is limiting torrent rates ...

You use the outgoing port, and unless your computer's set up to block outgoing then it doesn't matter. The port in your video is for incoming connections. Incoming is what you have to add to your firewall. Not incoming as downloading, incoming as incoming requests.
