Tried enabling, disabling, reenabling etc. Strangely, only certain files are being dowloaded, while others are not being downloaded. I did upgrade to Utorrent plus and thought maybe I had to change something, but nope, it worked fine with their connection. There has to be a way around this ; I just encountered this same problem. I am using Peerblock, tried closing it without any change Just to be sure: Exit both PeerBlock and uTorrent use e. In the PeerBlock window, you'll probably see a BitTorrent entry moving down the list. I have been using utorrent for years now with no issues, but starting out of the blue yesterday.
Hey — you solved my problem, albeit indirectly. Ensure uTorrent process is finished, then launch PeerBlock. I had had the problem intermittantly before but never really caught on to how I was causing the problem, and then it took time to see if it actually fixed my problem or if it would happen agian. I'll post again if I do stumble on a solution for my problem. Is there any way for me to chat with someone who knows about this stuff and knows it is none of the above? If it does, then PeerBlock is probably the culprit. Well, it's up and running again.
If so, should another vpn work? I tried Tixati, its also having the same issue acquiring the dht from the trackers. Be quick to right-click on it and Allow xxx. Also, are you sure you do not have an anti-virus or security suite? I have exactly the same problem as above and cannot sort it. Thank you for your explanations and continued assistance. No Idea what changed, it works fine with peerblock and malwarebytes running. I've even tried loading an older version but that doesn't work either.
I dont see how a third party could be intercepting my connection requests. I've read this: and I'm still confused as h3ll. I also made sure to add uTorrent to the exceptions list in Windows Firewall. Hopefully we are narrowing it down! Hvygear, Suggesting someone to ditch a program and get another one, is far from solving the issue. I've heard even removing Norton can cause serious problems as it clings onto system resources for dear life. What I have figured out here recently, and hence solved my issues, was within the modem configuration its self.
Ok I didnt fix the technical cause of the problem, however I did find the source of the problem. I almost always connect through Librae or Anodrome. I did a lot of searching on the web at the time to find a solution and I think you've covered almost everything so hopefully this thread can act as an excellent starting point for anyone having similar difficulties. Not sure what to make of it, but now Utorrent is waiting to log on. I have uninstalled, deleted and re installed utorrrent. Turns out I was playing with I2P and had enabled a proxy on 127. I share my provider with over half of my country and none of my friends seem to experience the problem, but it may still mean that they're targeting random users or something and I just have bad luck.
Now, I make sure I shut down the torrent client first, then shut the computer down. I would be very grateful for any help. They can sometimes interfere with torrent clients. In the status bar, I am seeing. Im even more sure nothing has changed. Sprint has begun blocking these sites proactively. But other trackers still don't connect.
A lot of the firewall restrictions usually prevents you from downloading some material on the internet, if not all. Hi all, The speed of my torrents has dropped to almost zero and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas. This time I have disabled windows update both in firewall and as a service, and comodo update. I have the free version of avast! On larger torrents I was telling the client to 'shutdown the computer when downloads complete'. The only time anything ever popped up was for updates that never successfully completed.
The speed test indicates the firewall etc is working fine. But it doesn't stop there, out of curiosity, I replaced the drive with the newest one, that had the broken uTorrent on it, now it works fine. The only way to fix the problem is to unplug the modem reset it, and plug it back in. I am not sure why they are showing timed out, but I have seen that a lot myself lately and I am not sure that is due to your setup. If you miss the entry, you can find it and right-click on it in PeerBlock's View History if history is enabled. After thinking about it for a while, I remembered I previously several years ago had an issue where bittorrent would not connect because my router's firewall was turned on.
This has happened before, usually when they roll out a new version and I dont update it. Now you can check the torrent agian. I basically know nothing about wireless, networks, or ports and am completely new to torrent use, so if anyone is able to help me I'd really appreciate it, and I'll apologize in advance if I don't understand something. Thank you for you're time regardless. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
