aite heres the situation, last week bittorrent was working fine. today i wanted to download some files, so i start bt, with azureus. however i find that there are no remote connections, and this is a popular file too over 300 seed and leechers. i realized there was a newer version of bt out, so i thought that might be the problem, so i download the newer version of bt. still nothing, azureus still fusking up. i tried out bittornado and the bittorrent downloader, samething. no remote connections. so i starts to play around with the ports. note azureus claims that port 6881-6889 are working fine the tests all indicate they are working fine. but i switch around to ports anyway from 5300 to 6890 nothing works. still no remote. however i do notice that when i switch the port, i immediately get a couple more local connections however no remote connection what so ever. in my second attempt at downloading i was able to connect to 3 remote connections, but they just stopped. there were no more remote conenctions after that. and after that it got even worse, now theres NO remote connections. sorry for the rambling but help please.
