utorrent connects to many peers but no seeds


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any ideas?

Here's my setup:

I'm running utorrent on an XP machine behind a WRT54G that's running OpenWRT. I've opened up port 40000, and the utorrent port checker gives me a green light:

>>Welcome to the µTorrent Port Checker.

>>A test will be performed on your computer to check if the specified port is opened.


>>Checking port 40000 on


>>OK! Port 40000 is open and accepting connections.


>>You will be able to receive incoming BitTorrent connections.

For a while I had zone alarm running, but disabling it seems to have had no effect. I'll be connected to about 100 peers, and 0 seeds. There are thousands of seeds on each of the torrents that I'm trying to dl, in some case more seeds then peers!

Restarting utorrent, and my machine for that matter, has no effect.

utorrent shows the availability as being < 1, presumably because I'm not connected to any seeds?

I'd love some ideas... I've got four torrents sitting @ >90% and they wont finish!

Thanks in advance
