Hello everyone, First I'll give some essential information about my setup: 1) What version of BitComet are you using? Bitcomet 64bit v1.32 2) What type of Internet connection do you have (ADSL, etc.)? Fibre Optic hard line (very fast - I live in Japan) 3) Do you have a modem? Do you use a router? What make and model are each one of them? Have you forwarded your port? Modem: yes (provided by my ISP - NTT) and set to "Bridge" Router: yes (Asus RT-AC66U Dual Band) 4) If you have more than one router, be sure to mention the make and model of both devices, how are they connected (i.e. in which connector of both devices is the network cable plugged) and which one of the devices is connected to or is the modem. Also, if you have more than one computer make sure to mention in this case, to which router is every one of them connected. I have 2 PCs connected to the router, each with their own static IP setup PC1: 192.168.1.20 and PC2: 192.168.1.21 on DHCP in the router with port 65432 properly forwarded in the router to PC2: 192.168.1.21 5) What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use? Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Firewall: no software firewall but my router acts as one Antivirus: Eset Nod32 Anitvirus 5 6) Other important info: Recently purchased a VPN from hidemytorrent.com I've been using Bitcomet for about 5 years now and really like it. Up to now I've always used my standard ISP connection with the listening port properly port forwarded and have never had any issues. Recently, I've been concerned about internet privacy so I thought I would try a VPN service. I registered with hidemytorrent.com, setup the VPN and am able to browse the internet without any issues. I've checked my IP address and have confirmed that I am getting a new IP address which is coming out of the Netherlands (I live in Japan). When I use my regular connection there are no problems. The listening port is not blocked and I get the green ballon. However when I connect through the VPN my listening port is blocked and I get a yellow ballon. I have tried several different things but have had no success. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do with the settings of either bitcomet or my router to resolve this issue? Thank you in advance...
