    I am able to downloaded and uploaded some torrents from a private tracker using my residential connection and now I'm trying to use them through my seedbox. The problem is the seedbox doesn't connect to any peers from the tracker. It can download torrents from other trackers without any problems.

    This is the message that it comes up with.
    "[2008/05/01 - 23:08:31] error: Problem connecting to tracker - (-2, 'Name or service not known')"

    I tried changing the port numbers, but to no avail. Has anyone else had any similar problems with seedboxes downloading from private trackers?

    Well... it would help if you state your client maybe?
    From what I can guess is try to stop the client in your own computer if it's seeding or downloading from the same tracker. Also, some trackers like TorrentStorage only allow you to download from the same computer your on now...

    The client on the seedbox is bit tornado.

    I've never attempted to download from both the seedbox and my own residential connection at the same time.

    Some trackers dont allow bit tornado. The tracker that you are using should have a list of allowed clients, check if bit tornado is on it.

    does it do this on every tracker you try? looks like a problem with the DNS on the server.

    It works fine on the dozens of other trackers I've used.

    I don't have the option to change the client on the seedbox I'm using unfortunately.

    Make sure the port your using is not blacklisted by the tracker in question.
