  1. I was able to load ver 1.73 on my wife's win 10 home edition and I notice it pops up a choice for adware install before installing bitcomet. So I added bitcomet to the pop up allow list and it installed fine. The error message is a far cry from being intuitive. Thank you for all your concern, it kept me thinking.
  2. I can't find that screen in my bitcomet ver 1.50; are you using ver 1.73 for this? Are you running on windows 10?
  3. where is this statistics? bit comet or win 10 or router. if in bitcomet where do i find it
  4. I lowered the uac to lowest and in port fwd i said port range is 3388:3390 and set the port to 3389 which is my win 10 listen port i found using regedit. I set to both udp and tcp. still no go same error
  5. I'm not having a problem getting into the router. Once in I can't find anything that says listen port. I got bitcomet 1.50 from Foss and it unzips the entire directory so I make a shortcut of the bitcomet app in that directory onto the desktop and it is working. I have ver 1.6 on my old computer and it works fine but it also won't load ver 1.73 with same error as on the new x1 carbon. version1.73 is not a zip file but a installer that wants to load into 😄 programs/bitcomet. Does 1.73 have known problems?
  6. I got a spectum router and can't figure out where the listen ports are. I tried disable the firewall and antivirus. Tried setting exceptions for .exe and folder programs/ It installed fine and works on my older lenovo T410 so it would seem it is set ok. My new computer is a lenovo x1 carbon and it asked me a tlhousand q;uestions when setting up about commumication with ms etc. abittorrent loads fine and works fine. I miss bit comet but am at a loss as what is causing it . It would seem its a MS setting win 10 pro on both computers thanks
  7. I got a new win 10 computer and when I try to install bitcomet it say no internet or check fire wall. Is there a port i need to open? I loaded it on my older computer with no issue. or is there a windows setting that is causing this.
  8. I did a search here on "anonymous" and read in a post that Tor project forbids use for p2p. Does that still hold and does it apply to bit comet? I currently use peer guardian , is that the best Im going to do unless I get some kind of subscription like VIP or others?
  9. Will Tor software :https://www.torproject.org/ make my bit comet work anonymously?
  10. Hello again, I erased all the junk I set up before and started from scratch. I set up a static ip on my laptop and setup the portforwarding and I got a green light now! Thanks for all the advise! I set up the dhcp in router manually so it will not issue my static id. I set up bit comet to use 65432 as a listen port. Rebooted all my devices and they all work with internet ok. :)
  11. wikipedia says it owned by Sony and states: Crackle currently features original content and licenses movies from Columbia Pictures, TriStar Pictures, Screen Gems, and Sony Pictures Classics and TV shows from Sony Pictures Television.[9] I gues I just have a hard time understanding how they are making money at this but I guess it all trickles down by buying the licences for big bucks then selling smart tv's with crackle and however else they are making money with this as a feature. Thanks
  12. I'm sorry if I have offended you. I used the instructions for my model at : http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/2wire/3800HGV-B/BitComet.htm I don't find any instructions for static ip or "Don't skip this step" there. However I will follow your advise and do this this evening when I get home. Thank you
  13. I got the ip address from the lower rt bottom of the bit comet screen telling me that listen port 8398 is blocked. I followed the portforwarding instructions for my model router. Which device am I suppose to select? the router? I 've tried everything listed and also entered router also. I can't get this yellow light off...
  14. I did a google on crackle and got this: http://www.crackle.com/c/Movies?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=&utm_content=spWRwq5Ab_9489916812_487lrz1638&utm_term=crackle%20movies Free movies no commercials.
