Connected to Peers But Not Seeds

5 posts in this topic

Standard Config with the incoming port at 64xx or so.

Max Connections-->200

Connected peers per torrent-->50

Upload slots per torrent-->4

max number of active downloads-->8

net.max.Half-open-->64

So with just one torrent theres a lot of seeds and a lot of peers but I and many others can not connect to any other seeds. So myself and a lot of other users are stuck at 93% or so.

I was wondering if there was any rhyme or reason to this particularly strange circumstance.

It's possible that it's a poisoned/fake torrent if everyone's stuck at around the same percent.

It might be a fake if you're stuck for a long time.

Otherwise, just wait for other peers that are able to connect to the seed and d/l some, and then you can d/l from them if you still can't connect to the seeds.

hmmm yeah its been a couple of days. Interesting, fake or poisoned torrents. Can't say I've encountered many. It's just wierd that there are so many seeds (according to the tracker) yet among my peer group about 15-20 of them are stuck at the same percentage.

Thanks for the info.
