juggy Posted June 17, 2007 Report Share Posted June 17, 2007 I am having problems getting the port to open with Utorrent. I've run the check port test with Utorrent open as well as closed with the same results, Error! Port 55000 not open.My specs:AMD 3700 with 1gig ram.Win XP sp2ISP - Bellsouth (south florida)Modem - Westell (it only shows a model # of 890-220030-04, no short model #)My speed test bandwidth is 2400kbps download/ aprox 280k uploadI've used SG TCP Optimizer (but it didnt work before or after)I've turned off Win XP firewall (but I have added utorrent to the exceptions, as well as added the port just in case), connected only the modem directly to the PC, and am still unable to open the port required. My download speeds are usually pretty low, aprox 10-30k max.. Out of 2000-3000 seeders, I am usually able to connect to about 10-20 of them. I am OFTEN able to double or tripple my upload speed than that of my download speed which leads me to belive it is my port issue. I have tried some utorrent tweaks mentioned on the forum such as reducing the max connections, etc.I've tried to set up a static IP (I know this is only for routers, but I tried anyway) as well as having it auto obtain IP.. Still will not open the port. Might anyone have any suggestions? Is this an ISP issue where they are blocking my port opening attempts to screw over PnP people and preserve bandwidth? Any help would be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
