  1. LT seeds are not guaranteed, they depend on the specific torrent you're downloading (if it has other LT seeding peers). For the blocked port part you should check the Wiki FAQ. There's also a Read First Before Posting topic that you totally missed.
  2. Just to add to what TUUS said, the functionality of the # column in uTorrent is to establish the download order. In Bitcomet that is the order in which the tasks are listed when no sorting function is applied.
  3. Actually leading a peaceful life is quite a very valid choice to consider... Or if you still feel like navigating the turmoils of this world you could try following the guide described in the Wiki FAQ: I have a yellow status light, and my download speeds are slow. What should I do?
  4. The fact is, lowercase has been invented because it's so damn tiring to read all caps. I couldn't pass beyond the 5th or 6th word in your whole post, that's how fast I gave up. If you love being the only one who reads your posts, by all means keep tying in caps... it's your right. Just don't expect much feedback.
  5. Anyhow, to anybody else who feels the need to cry their hearts out about this issue, you should know that topics like the ones below were created specifically for this reason in the Wiki FAQ: All my other Internet applications either slow down or say they can't connect when I use BitComet. What's going on and how can I fix this? When BitComet is running my router/modem reboots itself or freezes. Why is this happening and what can I do to fix this?
  6. Or you could start browsing the Wiki FAQ, such as: http://wiki.bitcomet.com/bitcomet_client_issues_and_possible_solutions#i_have_a_yellow_status_light_and_my_download_speeds_are_slow_what_should_i_do
  7. From what I've seen so far in Bitcomet, re-adding the same torrent from a different site always merged the lists of trackers on my PC. If it doesn't do that in your case, that's strange. It's true that I've tested this a couple of versions back and not on the latest ones, but I'm assuming the feature should still be there.
  8. Since you've already read countless guides, one more won't hurt you much then: http://wiki.bitcomet.com/add_port_mapping_in_nat_router
  9. Actually, I'm afraid it's rather Windows' implementation of SMB that sucks. I used to get that kind of error as well. You should try to mount the NAS drive into a folder which is on the local drive; at least that would get you rid of the issue with the disappearing net path, maybe. Sure enough if the drive goes missing for a while, as far as Windows in concerned, Bitcomet might still balk but perhaps it will resume (I don't know how exactly it works internally, and I've never tested this particular aspect nor can I at this moment).
  10. Your sshot is almost incomprehensible but from what I could see you're on the wrong page of the Options dialog. Encryption is on the BitTorrent page and in order to understand what each choice does you'll need to visit the Wiki.
  11. I don't think you understand very well how BitTorrent network works. I'd head into the Wiki, if I were you and start reading the first section topic and then the topics in the first section of the FAQ there, in order to get a grip on the basics.
  12. Just follow the port forwarding guide; it should give you a pretty good idea what you need to do.
  13. You should go first through the port forwarding guide to check if you didn't miss any step when doing it in the hostel router.
  14. Yep, Calibre rules and it's also updated very often. On top, its PC ebook reader module uses CSS for displaying the pages and it's incredibly versatile; it will allow you to customize almost every conceivable feature of the page and also allow you to add cool page backgrounds (I've read all the 5 volumes of "A Song of Ice And Fire" on a page background resembling old yellowish book paper that I've found elsewhere, which made reading those almost 1000 pages of each volume a real pleasure). Of course it doesn't beat the comfort of a real physical ebook reader but I haven't decided on a model yet, so in the meantime... Anyway, most of the modern physical readers don't support .LIT since it's a Microsoft proprietary format that was discontinued even by Microsoft themselves. You can try to see here which physical readers support .LIT: http://en.wikipedia...._e-book_readers If you are really heading towards a physical reader then you can use Calibre to convert your .LIT into EPUB which is an open standard and the new hype in the ebook arena and is also recognized by most readers. In fact you can use Calibre to convert pretty much any format towards almost any format. Else for a list of other software readers check this: http://wiki.mobilere...oftware#Windows
  15. I'd recommend you start with the Wiki and peruse most of the topics. There are especially a couple of topics for beginners that will be useful to you, especially those in the BitComet Tutorial and BitComet User Interface sections, as well as the first section of the FAQ (Understanding BitComet). BitTorrent is pretty different from the eDonkey protocol and the general logic behind the BitTorrent clients is rather non-intuitive until you read and comprehend it a bit. Before you wrap your mind around a few basics you'll be fumbling in the dark, mostly, if you try to compare it to other sharing networks so, I'll say "happy reading", wherever you may choose to do it. P.S. as a bonus you will find out that BitComet integrates the eMule client as a plugin, in order to perform cross-protocol downloads when the same file is available on both networks. But that's already an advanced topic that you need not bother with at present time.
  16. Bottom line is that either: You stop the torrent once it's finished, right-click and choose Files Move To in order to move the contents of the torrent, then once it's moved you can simply restart it and it will continue seeding from the new location; You can use the option Move completed downloads to from Options-->Directories, in order to ask Bitcomet to move your files for you automatically, once the task is finished.
  17. It's very possible that one or more of the seeders in the swarm use "initial seeding" which means you will see a new piece from that peer only when it receives confirmation that you already uploaded back in the swarm the last piece it fed to you. This is a technique meant to lower the amount of data the seeder needs to upload in the swarm and to "force" other peers to seed back or "stay on the sideline". However, in very small swarms this doesn't work really well and might give results such as you see. If that's the case, there isn't really much you can do from your side, except arm yourself with patience. As for your second question in the first post, Bitcomet doesn't have such a feature. uTorrent has implemented it a while ago (and it's still there AFAIK - it's called "local peer discovery") and it might do what you want, but I've never tested it personally, so I can't say how it works.
  18. Please post a sshot of the Summary tab... let's see if your UDP port is open. Tracker servers could be simply overloaded at certain moments (and that could account for the fact that they don't always reply in time), especially since there are lots of people who add whole lists of free trackers when they create their torrents even though the respective torrent isn't tracked by that specific server; which fact adds to the pointless burden the trackers sometimes have to shoulder. Of course, I'm not entirely sure if that's your issue and in the first case (when all of them were not responding) it seems rather improbable, but this can very well account for the second sshot you posted. It's also possible that other trackers have only a list of preferred clients to which they reply and ban the rest. Moreover, 2 of the tracker URLs in the last sshot are not present in the first ones (so there is no evidence they worked even then) and the 3rd one seems to be in "updating" mode even on the uTorrent sshot so it's status is also unclear. Seeing that usually the lists of peers you get from multiple trackers are identical mostly you shouldn't worry too much. As long as you get at least one tracker to respond or even a DHT batch of peers, then the PEX kicks in and the connected peers exchange peer lists directly between them, so the tracker may even go down completely and the torrent could very well continue to live and download fine for quite long (proof are the TPB torrents which don't use a tracker any more, since quite long).
  19. This is highly confusing. The remote control port is a different thing as compared to the listen port. It uses TCP not UDP. As for the listen port, the ports the fact that the ports appear both open if indeed you still have a yellow light, that is odd, I've never seen that behavior. You'll have to back it up with some more synchronized sshots (where you actually show the status lights), in order for this to be considered a bug report, I guess.
  20. If you just google both your errors you'll see that these are related mostly to IE/Windows issues. You can try re-installing BitComet first (maybe there is a corrupted DLL somewhere) but if it still doesn't work then it's definitely your OS that screwing up.
  21. I would try to re-install BitComet, to see if it doesn't fix this during the re-installation process.
  22. Else, the Bitcomet Wiki has a FAQ where you can find answers on how to resume partial downloads.
