  1. Check the router again. It's possible that BT did an online 'upgrade'. Also, make sure that you are NOT using DHCP between router and computer - in network setup, properties, set the computer to have a fixed ip (in the lines of 192,168,0,### and manually set the gateway and the DNS servers. In the router set ports to a range of values (10 is usually enough) linked to the IP address you gave the computer

  2. First of all, this is NOT a bug in the clent Second, the server is down and no points can be gained - this does NOT affect downloading speeds - just the ranking system

  4. Hello everyone, I have been using BitComet for around 13 years but didn't know that this forum existed.

  5. As @Rhubarb explains, it all depends on how many people are Seeding the file your trying too download. Try different times of the day, for me living in the UK, I find downloading during the night turns up more Seeds. You have to consider not everyone Uploads/Seeds 24/7.

  6. Rhubarb, Actually I've noticed this to be quite a disturbing trend among the younger generation at the moment, to uncheck/deselect the miniscule sized tiny files such as the "downloaded from 'X' torrent site" text files etc. from all the torrents they download... even though they're usually only at most, a matter of just a few 'bytes' in size, or with 'other' small files, only just a few kilobytes in size. Not exactly files that are going to use up a large amount of harddrive space. And yet the most common answer I get when asking why they bother doing this, is... "So they don't 'clutter up' my harddrive!" Yeah... GREAT!!! It doesn't seem to even OCCUR to them though that WITHOUT those additional tiny files, there's simply 'no means' for them to be able to 'seed' the complete torrent file (in its entirety) BACK to anyone... resulting in the torrents running out of new active seeds, causing them to die off and no longer be obtainable (much sooner than would likely otherwise be the case), so that those AFTER them who wish to download those torrents (very frustratingly) can NO longer do so! Just my two cents, but I personally think that those who do this are being rather selfish really. The ability to be able to select and ONLY download the part (or parts) of a torrent that you wish to, I've always considered to be a very useful feature indeed. But a feature never-the-less that was ONLY ever intended to be used for situations such as if you already have all but just one or two episodes from a tv series or a movie series etc. In which case this feature gives you the abilty to ONLY download the one (or few) remaining episodes from a torrent of an entire series (or season of a series) that you don't already have, and so therefore need, WITHOUT having to download all of the 'other' episodes! ndx689

  7. It's ALL files that are stopped which can be accessed for LT seeding. What files are being used depends on who is looking for that file (and is also using Bit Comet)

  8. Long Term Seeding will continue to upload even when all tasks are stopped. It only uploads to other clients that have that facility. To stop it, you have to disable long term seeding in options

  9. The answer would be 'long term seeding'. That will kick in if another BC user is looking for a file that's in your download folders whether the file is flagged 'active' or not

  10. No Windows app will install all parts of an installation other than to Drive C. Some parts can be moved to other drives, but the main .exe file HAS to be on the Windows drive. That's just how it is. While some earlier versions did give an 'option' to install on another drive, it still installed the main parts to C. There was no real advantage in splitting it between two drives. You can still set up the download folders to another drive (which is really more important than the app files)

  11. Try setting your computer IP to a fixed value (not auto) such as 192.168.1.12 and make sure that BC has a fixed port value corresponding to one set on the router for that poarticular intranet IP. Don't use just one DNS - use both 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. Sometimes you may need to use 192.168.1 as primary DNS with 8.8.8.8 as secondary, but 8.8.4.4 is also needed. Try it both ways That set of red lines tells me absolutely nothing. If you want a ping value, open a command prompt and type 'ping 192.168.1.1' (without quotes) and also try a ping to your isp (do NOT post that IP here or anywhere else)

  12. If the source is missing a necessary file (and it may be one of only a few KB) there's nothing you can do apart from trying another source. If it's yourself de-selecting small files, then don't de-select them

  13. Are you downloading the entire contents and, if so, are other downloads continuing? It's possible that the seeding station isn't complete. A lot of times the .txt or .jpg files actually overlap another segment which has a necessary file. This also applies to your download - without the small part in the 'info' file, the main part of the file may be incomplete

  14. That's an emule add-on and not a Bitcomet one. It's there ONLY when emule is activated

  16. It's possible that the other peers don't have the parts you need or they are already uploading to others (with other files) at their maximum speed.

  17. I had the same problem a while ago. I turned out something called "UAC Virtualization" had been turned off. Fix that and you should be back in business.

  18. It could be a fault in windows itself. Occasionally I have occasional problems accessing some apps but I run the developers' version (think beta) with weekly updates. Ty opening a command prompt as admin and use the following command sfc /scannow Failing that, you may need to do a system restore Worst case scenario - format 😄 and re-install

  20. Tools: PILLAR DRILL : A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it. WIRE WHEEL : Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh*t' DROP SAW : A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short. PLIERS : Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters. BELT SANDER : An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs. HACKSAW : One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes. MOLE-GRIPS : Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand. TABLE SAW : A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity. HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK : Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper. BAND SAW : A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge. PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER : Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads. STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER : A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms. HAMMER : Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit. STANLEY KNIFE : Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use. SHIFTING SPANNER: aka "Another hammer", aka "the Swedish Nut Lathe", aka "Crescent Wrench". Commonly used as a one size fits all wrench, usually results in rounding off nut heads before the use of pliers. Will randomly adjust size between bolts, resulting in busted buckles, curse words, and multiple threats to any inanimate objects within the immediate vicinity.

  21. hello gabri2ktommy when I am working with bitcomet the Malwarebytes detects outgoing connections through different ports as you can see in the screenshot I upload With the antivirus and firewall I have no problem is the Malwarebytes who gives constant warnings when running the BitComet. I would make an exception for BitComet, but only if it is a false positive. Greetings! Hola, gabri2ktommy. Cuando estoy trabajando con BitComet, el Malwarebytes detecta conexiones salientes a través de distintos puertos, como puedes ver en la captura de pantalla que he adjuntado. Con el antivirus y cortafuegos no tengo problema, es con el Malwarebytes que da avisos constantes cuando está en marcha BitComet. Haría una excepción para BitComet, pero sólo si es un falso positivo. ¡Saludos!

  22. With almost every update to BitComet, we get a short flurry of posts complaining about a virus or trojan. There isn't one! If there was one, the forum would be swamped with complaints - that doesn't happen and we only get a handful of people claiming that it is 'infected' However, perhaps this will help explain why it happens (from the installation notes on another app) "This release's binary is packed with an executable/dll compression tool to reduce his size (for an easy and quick upload/download). Unfortunately, some of these compression programs have a bad reputation in the security software industry, mainly because almost 99% of trojans/worms/etc. are packed with similar tools (or variants of these), and this self-unpack behavior is taken by some antivirus apps as an alarm signal. Basically, this means that any trusted program packed with one of these tools can be erroneously detected as a virus, something known as a "FALSE POSITIVE"." The 'cure' is simple - once the program has been downloaded (and any respectable A/V app would have scanned it on the download), TURN OFF THE A/V BEFORE INSTALLING and turn it back on after installation is completed. If there had been anything nasty in the file, the A/V would have caught it during the download.

  25. First, make sure that DHT is checked in Options > Task BitTorrent. Also rightr click on the download and check in 'Advanced' as occasionally it doesn't set DHT. Also try a 'high' port number after setting a fixed LAN IP number in the computer > network settings. Open the router firmware and set that port to the IP number and port matching the one you just set. Try a complete reboot first: power down BOTH computer and modem/router, wait at least two minutes, restart the modem/router and, when it 'locks', restart the computer. One other possibility is the use of a VPN which, if not configured correctly can block the listening port

  27. The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, "Mrs. Cohen, your check came back." Mrs. Cohen answered, "So did my arthritis!" A car hit an elderly Jewish man. The paramedic says, "Are you comfortable?" The man says, "I make a good living." I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport. I've been in love with the same woman for 49 years. If my wife ever finds out, she'll kill me! What are three words a woman never wants to hear when she's making love? "Honey, I'm home!" We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops. My wife and I went back to the hotel where we spent our wedding night, only this time I stayed in the bathroom and cried. My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife called it the Dead Sea . She was at the beauty shop for two hours. That was only for the estimate. She got a mud pack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off. Doctor: "You'll live to be 60!" Patient: "I AM 60!" Doctor: "See! What did I tell you?" A doctor held a stethoscope up to a man's chest. The man asks, "Doc, how do I stand?" The doctor says, "That's what puzzles me!" Patient: "I have a ringing in my ears." Doctor: "Don't answer!" A drunk was in front of a judge. The judge says, "You've been brought here for drinking." The drunk says "Okay, let's get started."

  29. Select the torrent, then use the "move up/move down" arrows to move the task up or down. If they aren't active click on the top of the "name" column until they become active.

  31. At the risk of repeating myself, the blocklist is an EMULE function - not a Bitcomet one. It's only there if and when the emule plugin is activated. It's also present if only emule (and not BC) is installed
