Thread: Please Help with Utorrent

  1. #1
    I have used Utorrent before fine on this computer with my old Comcast cable connection.

    I left my place, and moved in with my uncle. We established AT&T internet connection.
    Utorrent isn't downloading anything. Nothing seems to work.
    The modem AT&T provided is a Motorola 2210-02-1006 modem.
    I am using Windows XP Pro SP2. Not using router.

    I successfully setup a static IP address on my computer, and proceeded with all port forwarding instructions for this partilcular modem. Afterwards, I ran a port forward test, and it told me that the port does not appear to be open.

    My Utorrent still isn't working. I attempted to download OpenOffice which is typically used to test uTorrent. It isn't working. Nothing is downloading. Please help me get this thing running.

    if you're not blocking the port on your side, and the port appears to be blocked, then it unfortunately seems like it is blocked by your isp. i'm assuming you are using ranom port numbers and not one in the lower ranges? (i'm not an expert on this so i don't know the exact ranges)

    I did not randomize the port.
    I set a specific port in Utorrent, and set it up in the modem.

    I'm using port 48511. Is that good?

    There are also check boxes that I have unchecked. Is this right?
    Unchecked "Enable UPnP port mapping"
    Uchecked "Enable NAT-PMP port mapping"

    I also ran a test for ISP throttling on this site: http://broadband.mpi-sws.mpg.de/transparency/bttest.php

    It says that my ISP is not blocking anything. All bitorrent traffic should be clear.
    Should I use a different client?

    the port should be ok.
    no stick with utorrent, it's a very good client (if you get it to work ). but if you've run a port scan and it says that this port is blocked, the problem shouldn't be caused by the client.

    another thing, did you have utorrent running on that port when you made the scan? just making sure that you know you need to run the program using the port when testing, otherwise it will show as closed or blocked

    Thanks.
    Windows Firewall was disabled. I've always had it disabled on this computer.
    I ran the port forward test on the port which is 48511.
    It says that it does not appear to be open.

    i'm asking again since you didn't confirm, was utorrent running when you ran the test? if so... i'm out of ideas and hope someone more knowledgable jumps in and helps you out

    Sorry. Yes. Utorrent was running. I ran the test from the Utorrent Speed Guide menu.
