Open trackers down?


Recommended Posts

The most commonly used open trackers udp://tracker.publicbt.com:80/announce, udp://tracker.openbittorrent.com:80/announce and udp://tracker.istole.it:80/announce have not been working for me for several days now. They all return "Connection timed out." Other public trackers like http://exodus.desync.com:6969/announce and udp://9.rarbg.com:2710/announce are working. Are others having the same problem, or is something blocking my access to specific trackers?

The websites of the three big trackers running erdgeist opentracker

now all recommend using the following set of trackers:

  • udp://tracker.leechers-paradise.org:6969
  • udp://open.demonii.com:1337
  • udp://tracker.coppersurfer.tk:6969

The last entry in that list (coppersurfer) recommends an additional three trackers:

  • udp://exodus.desync.com:6969
  • udp://tracker.pomf.se
  • udp://tracker.blackunicorn.xyz:6969

Hi I have the same problem.


I use Peerblock 1.2 and found that if I disable it most of the UDP trackers will work, though there are a few that still don't update.


By a tedious process of elimination,disabling lists one at a time, I discovered two lists which were blocking trackers (sorry I can't remember the names, 


uTorrent's own IP blocklist didn't have any effect so I presume it's ok.


Hope this helps. If you're using Peerblock, just try running uTorrent without Peerblock for a few minutes and see if it helps.



It is still blocking some trackers so there must be another entry in one of the other lists
