UTorrent problem

Hi,
i just wondered if you could help me and tell me wether or not the problem is on my end or if its blocked or something? i dont know.
Ive used utorrent for a good few years, i have all my ports correctly opened and firewall setup correctly, yet for some reason i am consistently getting "Connection closed by peer" and a red down arrow
no matter which torrent im downloading.
Just wondered if you could clarify its something on your end i know theres nothing i can do about it.
cheers

Re: UTorrent problem

StephenF,
Has this problem only started recently? Which Plusnet package are you on?

Re: UTorrent problem

Do you have firewall blocking at the plusnet end of things switched on?
See https://portal.plus.net/my.html?action=firewall&firewallPage=basic
Personally, I make this switched off
- but I wouldn't recommend this if you are running a Windows PC.

Re: UTorrent problem

Within uTorrent there is an test to see if your ports are open, what does this say?

Re: UTorrent problem

Have you tried an alternative P2P client such as Vuze (which works for me) Cheesy

Re: UTorrent problem

Me too - in fact
My son uses uTorrent on Windows whilst I use vuze on Linux.
And they both work, simultaneously. Grin
