gasman Posted April 24, 2015 Share Posted April 24, 2015 This relates to a change made to bitcomet some time ago. The problem was that users were reporting a blocked listen port indication yet were still achieving remote connections. If I remember correctly, Bitcomet code was adjusted such that once a remote connection was established the green light would be turned on. My problem was this. upon starting bitcomet I would have a blocked port indication and only local connections. Then, after a random time interval (could be a few seconds or several hours) the green light would turn on but I was still seeing poor speeds and very few remote connections. Investigation proved this to be my firewall (Mcafee in my case) simply proved by complete removal of Mcafee, just turning the firewall off was not effective. I then contacted Mcafee support whom I found to be excellent via online chat but it took them over 2 hours (many reinstalls reboots etc) but eventually they came up trumps and all is 100% It seems that Mcafee was blocking the majority of inbound connections but the "odd" one would get through thus triggering the green light. In light of this it is my opinion that the code change to bitcomet such that the green light comes on once a single remote connection is established was a bad idea. It could well be giving you a false report as in my case. I would welcome your opinions on this Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
