Can anyone help me with port unblocking? Please? (uTorrent)

Can anyone help shed some light on why uTorrent is reporting that my Port is blocked?

It had been working fine until recently - I can't think that I have changed anything dramatically since.....but you never know......

I have set the port in uTorrent, am allowing it through my router, have added uTorrent as an allow in PG2, added the port as an exception in Windows Firewall............... I really don't know what else to do, or what, if anything, I have done incorrectly...........?

The Network indicator on uTorrent is running on Amber, occassionally turning green for a while, but when I check the port through there, it is saying blocked (even when the indicator is green)

My DL speed is not terrible (running @ between 17 and 60 kB/s atm) but has been a lot faster in the past (up to 200 kB/s) for similar sized/seeded torrents......

Thanks in advance for any help that might be forthcoming

If your ports have been forwarded to your router portforward.com/rou…htm

It could be - I am with Tiscali :x at the moment - thankfully my 12 month contract is up next week :w00t: and I am going to switch to TitanADSL (supposed to be very good) - so maybe things might resolve themselves then?

Can the port actually be blocked externally (by my ISP)?

did you set your IP address as static?

You are a star! Thank you - I had this set as static before, but for some reason it was being set automatically - updated and all working properly again!

You rock Chipsticks!:thumbsup:

Repped everyone for their help.............


..........saying that, my DL speed has now dropped to practically zero, even though I have a nice green tick, and an open port :? Any ideas?

EDIT: Seems to be coming back up now - might get to watch Lost tonight after all :thumbsup:

lol, glad I could help... had issues with port forwarding for the longest time, till I set a static ip address, then it worked like a charm.
