Help i think it has summit to do with port forwarding, which i know absolutely nothing about and would need it explained in idiot speak lol.

There is a yellow triangle when i download and a red circle when i try to seed both mention the firewall (which is turned off) or port forwarding. I had a mate come over and do it once before and it worked great but he aint here anymore so I'm stuck guys so any help would be superb.

Cheers Duffer

Help with port-forwarding ---> http://portforward.com/

BTW, the need to have a green icon in the status bar in uTorrent is highly over-rated IMO. A few days ago for example, my icon was red (yes red, saying "NOT connectible") but my d/l was still flying as fast as my connection allows.

But yeah if you're sure that the problem is stemming from this, then its better to forward ports and get the green icon.

While at http://portforward.com/ ROUTERS section, look to see if your modem is ALSO on their list. If so, it too needs to be configured or it WILL block uTorrent. :(

Even once you get unfirewalled, many seeds could still be unreachable -- having gone offline shortly after contacting the tracker one last time OR they've already reached max connections and are not accepting any more until one or more disconnect.
