I have been using Utorrent but recently have done a clean Windows 7 install, then I couldn't get a open port in Utorrent even though my router has been set up for port forwarding to Utorrent, and was never a problem before the clean install.

I decided to change to BitComet and everything was fine yesterday "my listening port is open (Green)" but cannot connect to any tracker that uses udp:// all the http:// trackers are working fine.

Is there a setting that I am missing?

Try shutting down other tasks and programs that use the internet, if the trackers response isn't received because your bandwidth is saturated the connection will fail. udp doesn't have the same handshakes in the protocol, trackers like it because it requires less work, but if you're busy when the reply comes you won't get it.

You can try removing all the trackers and add just one of the udp trackers at a time and see if you can get it to connect.

If you have a specific torrent you'd like me to test you can post the magnet uri and I'll see if it works for me.

ps. I've seen others report this too, but I've never been able to duplicate the problem and one thing I've noticed is most of those with the problem have torrents that have an insane number of trackers in them.
