UPnP - device error

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

I'm using Utorrent 1.8.5(17414) and UPnP has stopped working since i've changed router, to a Zyxel 661, also running Win7 and only 1 NIC. This is specifically a uPnP issue only.

The UPnP log on uTorrent show the errors:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[2010-01-18 23:17:36] UPnP: Device error "http://192.168.1.33:2869/upnphost/udhisapi.dll?content=uuid:b89a3ed4-cc9d-45ef-87ff-8e24561e9cd3": (-2)

[2010-01-18 23:17:37] UPnP: Could not map UPnP Port on this pass, retrying.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But the clear issue here is, 192.1.168.1.33 is not my router! (nor my PC IP)

The questions I have:

1) where is uTorrent getting this this IP from?

2) Can I FORCE uTorrent to use a specific IP address (in this case x.x.x.254)

Things I have tried already, which have not worked.:

- stopping / starting router

- stopping / starting uPnP on uTorrent

- setting net.outgoing_ip to the routers address.

Any tips will be appreciated!

What was your old router?

1) where is uTorrent getting this this IP from?

From another device on the network, most likely a windows vista or windows 7 machine.

2) Can I FORCE uTorrent to use a specific IP address (in this case x.x.x.254)

No. UPnP handles things differently than that.

Did you double-check that UPnP was enabled on the router?

Hi !

What was your old router?

It was a Thomson SpeedTouch 585. Worked fine with uPnP.

From another device on the network, most likely a windows vista or windows 7 machine.

You're right, the x.x.x.33 is a machine on my network and it is running Windows 7! Why would uTorrent mistakenly pick that machine up?

Or is windows 7 doing some funny business here, that machine has since obtained a new IP through DHCP (x.x.x.35) and the uTorrent on my machine is now trying to map a port to that device IP!

Did you double-check that UPnP was enabled on the router?

Yes, all enabled and set to "allow" through firewall. *scratches head*

Thanks DreadWing and Firon.

uTorrent tries to map on ALL devices it finds.

You're right, I tested and both Win7 machines are trying to map to each other and a XP machine tries to map to both win 7 machines!

Something clearly up with the router!

Will report back any success.
