Port detection failed

Recommended Posts

HI there

I have used bitcomet for years and its always been brilliant once I have got my listen port up and running. recently though the green light turned yellow and today it is now grey. I have followed all the instructions on the forum, turned off the firewalls on my pc and my modem. Set up a personal listen port on the modem and matched it to the listen port on bitcomet but it still won't connect.

What can I do to try fix this? any help would be greatly appreciated

 

Thanks

Try a complete reboot first: power down BOTH computer and modem/router, wait at least two minutes, restart the modem/router and, when it 'locks', restart the computer.

You could also try a 'high' num,ber for the port (your ISP may be blocking lower port numbers). I set mine to around 14,000

If that still doesn't work, try a fresh installation.

Brilliant, It seems to have worked.

 

The old turning it off and on again trick! I should have known, I've watched enough I.T Crowd!!

 

Thanks again
