uTorrent affecting FTP


Recommended Posts


I have uTorrent running on one computer and for some reason it's affect FTP, not only on that specific computer, but any other computers on that network. Whenever I turn uTorrent off on that computer, FTP works fine, but when it's on I can't seem to do anything on FTP.

Any ideas why the two would be conflicting like this?

Do you have any bandwidth limiting in place?

What version and build of uTorrent are you running?

And does your FTP client time out or return an error code?

I believe it's the latest version of uTorrent. I'll double check and get back to you on that.

I'm using FileZilla and here is the output after it connects to the server.

Status:	Connected
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: PWD
Response: 257 "/" is your current location
Command: TYPE I
Response: 200 TYPE is now 8-bit binary
Command: PASV
Error: Disconnected from server: ECONNABORTED - Connection aborted
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

Sometimes it would retrieve the directory listing and show up, but then I would keep getting that "Failed to retrieve directory listing" error.

Have you tried active move rather than passive mode?

Because an abort after a PASV request is more likely to be an uncooperative firewall than another application.

Yeah I've tried active as well with no luck. It pretty sure it's not a firewall. Everything works fine without a problem until uTorrent is turned on.
