  1. It's possible that you don't have a seed - just peers who didn't download the entire torrent
  2. Did you try making the .torrent file using BitComet itself? File > Make Torrent
  3. Unless you're also using utorrent, you won't have the same problem However, can you connect with the VPN off (normally a few seconds of a cobnnection won't trigger any alarms). Ifthat still fails, there's a possibility that there just aren't any seeds - I've had files sitting for ages with a lot of peers but no seeds (presumably all the others had the same amount of data that I had)
  4. Welcome but please observe one simple rule. Do NOT use this forum to promote your business or post any form of advertising.
  5. The server is down - uploadsand downloadswill work as normal (you just won't score any points)
  6. famous last words "I'm bored with it all." Winston Churchill "Tape Seinfeld for me." Harvey Korman "This is no way to live." Groucho Marx "Goodbye, Kid. Hurry back." Humphrey Bogart "I desire to go to h*** and not to Heaven. In the former I shall enjoy the company of popes, kings and princes, while in the latter are only beggars, monks and apostles." Niccolo Machiavelli "Pardon me, Sir, I meant not to do it." Marie Antoinette after stepping on the executioner's foot "My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. Either the wallpaper goes, or I do." Oscar Wilde "Jakie, is it my birthday, or am I dying?" Lady Astor "Prepare my swan costume." Anna Pavlova "On the contrary!" Henrik Ibsen on being asked if he felt any better "Now why did I do that?" Sir William Erskine just as he jumped off a balcony "Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something important." Pancho Villa
  7. You simply set the path to the anti-virus app and, so long as it knows where the bitcomet download folder is, it takes care of it by itself
  8. You might just be better asking in the utorrent forum - this is for Bitcomet LOL
  9. It's a hidden file in c:\users\<your name>\appdata\roaming\bitcomet\fav You would neeed to set folder options to 'show hidden files and folders'
  10. The only difference 'rank' makes is in the number of long-term seedersyou can theoretically access. I use the word 'theoretically' as with my 'rank' of sovereign I am supposed to be able to access 98, but I've never seen that many to begin with. As a 'colonel' you are supposed to have access to 61 (but if you ever see that many it's a minor miracle) LOL Score is as it says - the number of points you accumulate and 'rank' is simply how many people there are ahead of you with higher scores It's all a bit of fun really - it doesn't get you any free beer
  11. The simple answeris that if you block the app from hearing, it doesn't receive responses from trackers or any downloading so it simply doesn't know what speed the otherperson is receiving at, so it slows things down. In a nutrshell, if a person is hearing impaired, you have to shout and even then you can't be sure if they actually heard and understood
  12. Did you set up port forwarding in the router? To do this successfully you will need to give the target computer a fixed intranet IP number(on the lines of 192.168.0.### if your routerhas a numberin that series). You will then have to add port forwarding (I use a block of ports) in the router itself and the port in bitcomet set to one of those.
  13. If it's only happening with one download, I would suspect the fault lies in the original seed
  14. If you have queued items, (files waiting to upload or download) there will be some activity as the contacts to the trackers will show as upload
  15. Print Screen just copies the screen dump to the clipboard. You need to open a graphics program (even the bundled 'Paint' app in W 10) and 'paste' it in there
  16. If it's just to access a blocked website, you could try the 'anonymox' plugin for firefox. Asi I said, this is for a website only as it severely limits the amount of data you can download. Opera also has a built in VPN but, again, website only. When it comes to the actual downloading of files via a torrent, your IP can be traced and reported to your ISP. If you use a VPN, all that your ISP will know is that you have been online and there has been data transfer but not what has been transferred. It's the 'watchers' who look to see who is downloading movies, etc and they report the IP number to the relevant ISP saying what and when that IP number had been sharing files. If they see an IP number that is geographically situated elsewhere, then that's where the report goes/
  17. Most free VPNs will only let you have a very limited download where a paid one is normally uinrestricted. If it's just for browsing 'blocked' torrent sites, then a free one is fine - however, if your ISP is tracking yuor downloads and reporting back to one of the copyright chasing firms, then you need a pay up front one,
  18. Nobody here can help really - we don't have access to the servers or the database. All I can suggest is that you douple check yourlog-in and password
  19. It may be a hidden file. In drive properties, select to show hidden files. Then go to \Users\<yourname>\appdata and it may be either in Local or Roaming
  20. Check that you are showing an open port and DHT connected - two green icons at bottom right. If the port isn't open you will need to set that via the router and bitcomet
  21. You need a fixed intranet IP (that's the internal network, usually 192.168.###.1 for the router). Set your IP innetwork properties to the same block but with a different final number ),1 is normally the router). In the router settings, allocate a port number and set that to the IP number of the computer. Open Bitcomet and set the port number to match the one you just set up in the router (you can, if you like, set up a block of ports - like 12345 - 12356) but whatever port is open on the router MUST be matched by the port number in Bitcomet
  22. Different downloads have different trackers - it's not possible to have separate columns for all your downloads. I still don't see your point though - the 'trackers' tab will show for each individual download if that's the selected one. Click on the next one and you will see the status for that one and so on
  23. You may have a corrupt download. Did you try going to the folder and copy/paste thje file elsewhere and see if it opens there? I did notice you are using BC 1.35 - the current version is 1.55 (probably has no bearing but just thought I'd point that out)
  24. If you right click on the menu bar in the lower window you can add a 'trackers' tab which will tell you if the tracker connects and, if so, how many seeds/peers it has listed. That's about all the 'status' you'd need really
