FourPart Posted July 26, 2009 Report Share Posted July 26, 2009 I get the feeling from other posts I've seen that this is a widely found problem. However, I've yet to find a suitable solution.According to the icon at the bottom of my uTorrent I have no incoming connections, and when I run a Port Test the only result I ever get is that the port is not reachable.Now, before anyone says to refer to www.portforward.com (which seems to be the answer everywhere else), I already have done, but when following the tutorial for my particular modem (SmartAX MT882), the screenshots simply don't match, as it appears that TalkTalk have done something to the firmware.While the obvious solution is to open the port in the firewall, and / or to add uTorrent to the list of exceptions, I have not only done this, but have also tried disabling all fiewalls - including the one built into the modem, yet I still meet up with the closed port error all the time, so I'm pretty sure it's not being blocked by a firewall.I have also downloaded the PortChecker utility from PortForward.com, which, when uTorrent is running, keeps telling me that some other program is locking the ports on both TCP & UDP. However, when I close uTorrent, it only gives that error message to the UDP option - on the TCP is simply says it's not accessible - neither of which is of much help.The curious thing is that I can download torrents via uTorrent, but cannot seed, and what's even more peculiar is that I seem to be displaying upload rates, but only on the torrents I have downloaded from.I have tried with uPnP option set both to On & Off, but neither makes any difference. I have also set my machine up to a static IP. In fact I've tried everything I can possibly think of.Is there some way I can force a port to open, despite it supposedly being blocked by some other application?
