  1. It could be a server error, but besides that, you are running a very old version (you have 1.54 - current version is 1.59) You also have no downloads or uploads running
  2. The usual cause of 99.9%is an incomplete file (usually a .nfo or .txt file). With small files like that, what happens is that part of the main file is in that chunk and if you deselected it (or the seeder doesn't have it) the main fill will be incomplete
  3. Please try to understand - Azure is NOT designed for local storage - it's for cloud storage. If you feel that it should be able to handle larger files, please take this up with Microsoft. File size limitations are a product of the hard drive file system - not the applications
  4. Azure file system is a cloud based system - NOT a hard drive system. You need to set up your drives to handle NTFS and only uxse Azure for any cloud storage https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-files-faq
  5. Firstly, the question was about an AUDIBLE' ping' noise - not a question about pinging a net address Secondly - you do realise that was asked THIRTEEN YEARS ago? 🤣
  6. A VPN doesn't slow the system down - it simply hides your IP number so you can't be traced. It doesn't come free - you'd have to shop around to find the cheapest (it's against forum policy to make recommendations here). What you could try is to alter the internal port - you need to set up a fixed LAN IP (like and allocate a port number to that in the router. Then set BC to use that particular port. That may help - no guarantees
  7. In regards to the need for a hash check, are you simply killing the program or using the 'exit' option? Even if you do a restart from the start menu, it will do a 'soft' exit and restart with no problem. Doing a 'hard' reset will cause problems with the downloads. Regarding the second issue - all I can do is recommend you use a VPN
  8. That sounds very like you have downloaded a trojan from somewhere - you can try scanning but it may be too late. Worst case scenario is to re-format the drive and do a clean install with known good apps and be more careful in future with what you download You could try the recommendations here
  9. It's possible that the feeding torrents aren't comp[lete (I've had files stuck at 'almost there' for a couple of weeks or more). Unfortunately the only options are to wait it out or to try a different seeder. Yoiur second one is still downloading though (albeit very slowly). What does the 'files' tab show?
  10. It sounds as if your firewall may be blocking it - the fact that it woreks on one computer and not another would tend to point to a problem in the OS rather than the app itself. I'm on build 18990 (which is the latest 20H1 beta) with no problem. However, if this happened just afteran upgrade, it'spossible Windows reset something (I have a few apps that happens to, although BC isn't one of them)
  11. Check that you are downloading ALL the files in the torrent. Quite often the .nfo or .txt files contain a fragment of the main file
  12. Check that your ports are showing open - also check your router and port forwarding haven't been reset (a firmware upgrade would do this and you mightn't be aware that it was done) Your statistics panel should show something like this
  13. If you select only part of the whole torrent (ie, just the .avi or .mkv file or whatever) you will find, in a lot of cases, that a small part of the actual video is in the block that contains the .nfo or .txt files. Download ALL files
  14. 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)
  15. 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?
  16. You can't - sorry. It does need port forwarding to be set up and that needs router access
  17. Check thatyour firewall isn't blocking it. Do you have two green 'lioghts' at the bottom right?
  18. You need to set up a manual IP LAN and then set a port in the router using that address Example: set address to in network settings set a port in Bitcomet open router in browser and match that port numberwith the one you'vechosen, both for TCP and UDP
  19. You do know, of course, that post isTHIRTEEN YEARS OLD - don't you? 🤣 " Posted September 20, 2006 "
  20. I don't think the OP has been back for at least 5 years and the one you thanked hasn't been seen in a year 😄
  21. 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)
  22. 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
