  1. All I can suggest is for you to set a fixed ip number on the LAN and make sure that the port used is open both in the firewall and the router (that port forwarding is on for thatport and LAN ip number)

    That's hopw I haveit set up hwere with no problems. Any time I have had a problem it's been down to an incorrect port setting (usually caused by a W10 beta upgrade)

  2. It's not unknown for a torrent tracker to show seeds on the webpage, but no seeders in the client - it all depends on the site updating.

    Having said that, however, have you two 'green lights' showing? Also, is your trackerist (in advanced) showing trackers?

  3. Unfortunately - no. Your traffic is visible to anyone with the abilioty to snoop and the only way to conceal that is to use a VPN. However, sharing the file via a cloud server (or direct FTP transfer) does what you are asking without the use of torrents (but your ISP always knows the amount of traffic on your machine)

  4. You need a fixed ip address on the LAN (Local Area Net) - usually in the form of 192.168.###.###. The third block is usually .0 or .1 and the fourth is any number greaterthan 1 and less than 255. Open a DOSprompy (command line) and type ipconfig to find out the IP number the router and use thatas the first three numbers.

    Open the router(http://192.168.###.1) and look for port forwarding

    It's better explained here

  5. Read the previous posts - the server is down (and as it's run by volunteers it's not likewly to be back until the beginning of the week at the earliest). You can still upload and download - the only difference is that you won't collect any points (which can't be exchanged for beer anyway - they're just a bit of fun)

  6. It's your a/v reading a false positive. It 'something' detected what it thought was a virus, hen you have a/v running. I use Adawareand don't have a problem. However, as I said, McAfee is notorious for false positives on other apps.

    If it's deleting running files or downloaded torrents, then set that folder up as 'excluided' on scan and manually scan the downloaded files afterwards
