I have been trying to share a directory to a friend using "file->create new torrent" but for some reason it's not working. I am using public trackers, for instance this one udp://tracker.opentrackr.org:1337/announce . I did a bit of research and found out that maybe it's because my port is not open/forwarded. I have access to the internet via mobile hotspot, so i guess I can't forward the port being used by uTorrent . Also, I am able to seed other torrents that I have downloaded from the internet, for instance I was able to seed a Linux Distribution while it was being downloaded and the seeding continued as well after the download was completed. So, as stated, is an open port necessary for creating and sharing my own torrents? But at the same time how am I able to seed the torrents that I have downloaded from the internet?
Hi Forum, When running the Setup Guide, I get the Network Results: Port is not open (you are still able to download) The dedicated PC that is running uTorrent is also running the PIA-VPN client with port forwarding enabled on the same port that uTorrent is using: 28899 Checking the same port on yougetsignal.com/tools(/open-ports/ (and similar tools) they all report that the port is open. Does anybody know why uTorrent would not be able to see the open port when all other tools do? And I'm having problems with upload speed which is near Zero when I'm not downloading. uTorrent: 3.5.5 (build 45271) 32bit Listing port: 28899 Enable UPnP: On Enable NAT-PMP: On Add Windows firewall exception: On Enable bandwidth management (uTP): Off (To force TCP protocol) PIA Client: v2.1 (build 04977) Connection type: TCP Request Port Forwarding: On Provided port: 28899 Antivirus: Avast: All shields temporarily disabled during testing : not change in result.
