  1. Hi, I've had a good long look on the forum but I'm no closer to getting the elusive green light. I hope I've included all the necessary info: BitComet v1.47 (just the latest version I've tried as a fix), 64Bit, BT ADSL high speed (lol) broadband with Smart Hub Type A (no other make/model info on the Hub) Home Wireless network McAfee Total Protection on laptop (Acer Aspire E15) 64Bit, running Windows 10 Home, version 1709 IPVanish VPN Situation is: Until late last year I was using TalkTalk ADSL broadband. Their wireless router didn't allow users to manage settings so I was using my Draytek Vigor 130 ADSL/VDSL modem plus a Belkin N+ Router. I had no problems connecting to BitComet servers. I had forwarded a port in the Router settings and added BitComet to the list of allowed programs in McAfee. Green light was go. TalkTalk broadband was temperamental though, low speeds and kept dropping out when watching Netflix so I changed to BT High Speed ADSL Broadband (only have a telephone line, not cable enabled). Speeds are at least ten times faster but as soon as I swapped the hardware I had problems. Firstly, I could no longer connect to my media player (Popcorn Hour A-200, Cat-5 ethernetcable to router and wireless to laptop). In fact, the BT Smart Hub didn't 'see' the PCH at all. The ethernet port it's plugged into is showing as empty - I've moved everything around, tested different cables and it's still not visible.) I have access to the management area of the Hub and it seems like I can change settings but nothing helps on that front (perhaps that's for a different forum, but I thought it migt be relevant). Secondly, BitComet lost it's listening port (understandable with a new Router) so I went through the process of port forwarding but it's not worked this time. Just can't get it to work. Tried a static IP address and all the other recommended fixes but nothing works. Since then I've set up a VPN account with IPVanish. Again, I've changed the settings as recommended, both on the VPN and also BitComet proxy settings but BitComet is still giving me a gray light.To re-iterate, whether or not I use the VPN, BitComet maintains a gray light status. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling various different versions of BitComet based on various recommendations. PLUS, whereas before clicking on, for example, a Torrent file would automatically start BitComet, now it doesn't. It's like every Torrent link is dead. I've selected 'open with BitComet' for Torrent file types but that's had no effect. I'm starting to think that someone's out to get me! Happy to provide any further info. Really want to sort this out as it's been months of fiddling around now... Cheers!
  2. Almost all the commerical video streaming companies in China use the torrent protocals to deliver their content. However when I try to use torrents from outside of China I get no speed or very slow speeds. I can only connect with peers inside the Great China Firewall. So if I want to download something like GIMP in English I need to use a VPN. However if I want to download Games of Throwns with Chinese Subtitles, no problem. I was wondering if there are any public Chinese trackers that might give me access to more Chineses seeders and I'd get better speed without resorting to a VPN. Thanks,
  3. this is a suggestion. It would be a great and useful feature if you could put geolocation rules into the bitcomet engine. I am in China so I spend most of my internet time using a VPN. Many VPN do not like torrents. My VPN wants be to use their German servers for torrents. It would be very useful if BitComet has an option that allowed me to tell it, if my IP address is in the US, UK, Australia, etc stop all download/uploads. Honestly this is a feature I would pay for since it would save me a lot of hassle.
  4. 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: and PC2: on DHCP in the router with port 65432 properly forwarded in the router to PC2: 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...
  5. in bitcomet it keeps failing to find my firewall I will post screen shots for you I am running version 1.35 stable I have a vpn but when ever bitcomet see my firewall the green light in on so my connection is good but when it cant find the firewall it is yellow witch hurts everyone that torrents. I have gone into the firewall (Kaspersky Internet Security 2013) and put my port in so its not blocked and still wont work. I will try very hard to get a screen shot of a green light with my vpn its all up to bitcomet tho if it wants to find my firewall. I have all the settings in bitcomet setup to add windows firewall exception and UPnP mapping on. I never had this problem in the last version 1.34 & 1.35Beta.
