    The LED may be in one of six states.

    Blank - The download is not running or the downloader does not support status LEDs.

    Black - Waiting to connect to the tracker.

    If the LED remains black for a long time, the server tracking this file may not be responding, or this torrent is no longer available. Unless you recieve an error message indicating otherwise, leave the torrent connected, and TorrentStorm will continue to attempt to communicate with the server.

    Red - The downloader had been unable to connect to any other clients.

    If the LED remains red for some time, the torrent may no longer be available for download.

    Yellow - The downloader has not received any incoming connections.

    This may be due to your computer being behind a firewall or router which is blocking the incoming connections. TorrentStorm will work ok in this state, but if you can enable access for incoming connections, this will improve your download rates.

    Blue - There are no complete copies of the file you are downloaded among the clients you are currently connected to.

    This may mean you will be unable to complete your download. It could be that there are other clients with the complete file out there, but you are not connected to them at this time.

    Green - The torrent is downloading correctly.

    Well yellow can connect to others, although to my uderstanding this means that your ports are not properly fowarded or closed somehow as mentioned.

    Also any of the clients should work in this state although when you are in yellow status you cannot connect to other user in a similar status meaning less sources and slower speeds...

    Try a client like Azureus and you will get info as to file status.
    DOWNLOADING IS FUN - SHARING IS SUBLIME
    When all else fails - read the instructions!!!
