Problems with uTorrent and BT Guard


Recommended Posts

I am having a very recent problem with BT Guard and uTorrent.

I have been using these two programs together for over 12 months with no problems, however yesterday I started having a problem with uTorrent not downloading at all.

After uninstalling and re-installing both uTorrent and BT Guard and trying to change various settings I have discovered that if I disable the BT Guard in the Connections area of Preferences the torrents will locate trackers/peers etc and commence downloading. If I then re-enable the BT Guard the download will continue but no new ones will start.

Does anyone have any ideas as it is very frustrating as I have my system set up to automatically source and download new TV episodes without any input from me and having to disable and re-enable the proxy settings is not going to work for me.

Thank You

User YourMom suggested editing your host file to target a server that still is responding. The problem seems to have resolved itself when I when I edited mine to one of the servers YourMom suggested, did a ipconfig /flushdns, and restarted.

Kind of sad that BTguard hasn't responded to the issue.

Anyway, hope this helps.
