I cannot use Bittorrent to download files within FC5.


I just downloaded and installed the newly released Fedora Core 5. I find that I cannot use bittorrent to download files. So what's the problems? Is it related to the SElinux? Thanks!

Check that ports between 6681-6689 are not being blocked.

Helpful site

Try this site, make sure you follow the instructions carefully. Come back and post if it works.

If you're feeling the need to use Azureus, the instructions are there also.

Good Luck.

dealerman, thanks for your reply.

In fact, I can download files linked by a torrent file with an English name (e.g., the FC5 iso files at http://torrent.fedoraproject.org).

But when the torrent file is in Chinese character (the extension name is still 'torrent' of course), I cannot download the files provided by it!

After clicking on the link to the torrent file within the firefox, there is a warning message after opening the bittorrent-gui. Infact, I can download the files with older versions of BT and FC (e.g., BT-4.0 and FC3). But the download can not be performed within FC5 and BT-4.4. The BT still doesn't work even after I configured my system following the instructions in the link specified by you (or open the ports between 6881:6999, as mentioned by Alien). I do not know what's wrong.

Each time I open a torrent file with a Chinese name with bittorrent-gui, there is a warning message like:

'This .torrent file has been created with a broken tool and has incorrectly encoded filenames. Some or all of the filenames may appear different from what the creator of the .torrent file intended."

I check the log and find:

'Problem connecting to tracker - <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')>'.

So what's the problem?

Try to rename (not translate, just rename) Chinese symbols in torrent files into English letters.
