uTorrent works at home, not at college


Recommended Posts

Hey, wondering if you could help me with this problem.

At home uTorrent has worked perfectly fine, with no troubles at all.

However, here at college, I always get the red down arrow tracker error.

Last semester I figured it was because I couldn't find any open ports. (At home they all seem to work.) But today I selected a random port that tested as Open, so I figure that can't be the problem anymore.

I've tried several torrents that all come back as tracker errors, so I figure the difference must rely in some security setting or router setting or something within the dorm I'm staying in.

So what I'm wondering is, how can I go about even beginning to solve this problem? I don't know any of the college's networking specs, though I may be able to find out, not sure.

I mostly just want to know what could be blocking access to the trackers, seeing as it can't be my computer, since it works perfectly fine at home.

Thanks in advance!
