Post update UDP port error
#1
Java 1.8.0_66 (64 bit)
 Oracle Corporation
SWT v4528, cocoa
Mac OS X v10.11.1, x86_64
V5.7.0.0/4 az2

ISP: BT
Computer: 15" MacBook Pro running El Capitan

Since updating to the latest version of Vuze I have had a consistent UDP port error. Repeated testing confirms that port 45488 is not working for inbound UDP connections, though it is fine for all other connections. I have run a network test on my computer which confirms that the port is open, have set up port forwarding on my router and tried shifting to another port number. Nothing has worked.

The problem manfested immediately after I downloaded the latest update, prior to which I had been using Vuze without any issues. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled Vuze, but the problem persists. Has anyone got any ideas what the problem might be and how I go about fixing it?

Are you implying that you are using the same port for udp and tcp ?

If so that is a Bozo no-no!

In general it is best to forward a port in the approximate range of 50,000 - 65,000 (the actual range is slightly larger but i can never remember it exactly) so trying a port in that range might help (but I doubt it).

I was simply using the ports that were automatically selected by Vuze itself. I manually tried other ports in the range you describe too, but got the same UDP error every time. It was clearly something to do with the update to Vuze as it happened immediately afterward it was applied. I've been using the program since it was Azureus without any troubles, but this one has me has me beat. In the absence of any solution I've started using uTorrent, which seems to work fine for my purposes. I'd still be interested to know what borked my Vuze though.
