Gerrard Posted July 28, 2008 Report Share Posted July 28, 2008 I'm staying in a university hostel and trying to run utorrent using the LAN connection in my room. I do not have access to the router - there is just the ethernet socket in my room. Now, I have read some other threads regarding running utorrent on university networks, but I believe my situation may be slightly different, which is why I'm posting this thread. For one, I know that my university does not block p2p per se (it only bans the downloading copyrighted material). For two, I was able to get a green status icon on utorrent yesterday, and a port check indicated that my port was forwarded correctly. However, the status icon reverted to yellow today, and utorrent says that my port isn't forwarded properly any more.I did not change the port I am using (randomize port is OFF). So why would this be the case? Are there any steps I can take to ensure that my port is always forwarded correctly? I am using utorrent 1.8 rc6 btw - are there any new features in it that can help me increase my d/l speeds? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
