  1. Update - turns out the torrents I was using for testing were from a private tracker that has banned BitComet as a client. From what I gather the reason is related to the communication of true torrent stats which they use to enforce various ratios and limits. Bummer as I am a big fan of BitComet and it's by far my favorite client so far. When using a different (non-private) tracker, everything looks great and is flowing at ~10,000 kB/s.

  2. UPnP is on in BitComet settings, and I tried both TCP and UDP in the VPN - still no luck. No torrents will download, and "Port Detection Failed" still showing with the gray circle.

No torrents that are added begin downloading.
