Vuze says there are no seeds/peers, when torrents says it has over a thousand
#1
Happy Day!

I'm not very IT. But I've been using Vuze for a while and I just ran into a big problem.

I haven't downloaded anything for a couple of days. I've upgraded to Vuze Plus and
I have tried to download something that had of a thousand seeds/peers. Vuze is saying
that there are 0 Seeds and 0 Peers. I don't understand!

What can I do to fix this?

Thank you so much for any support!! :)

There are quite a few reasons something like that happening.

Have you set Vuze to only accept peers from the tracker?  On many public sites enableing that will mean that you can not connect to peers since the vast majority of peers are obtained via DHT and peer exchange.

Do you have encryption turn on and do you only accept peers which have encryption enabled?  Even on private sites the majority of peers do not have encryption enabled.

Either of those (or a combination of both) could explain your problem.

You could be getting traffic shaped.

first check here and locate your ISP.

then read this for suggestions on how to avoid your ISP's efforts (if necessary)

The words here and this are links ;-)

There are probably some other things I am forgetting as well LOL

But that is a place to start.

If you need assistance to figure out if you have any of those setting enabled let us know and I or someone else will let you know exactly where you can find that information.

Don't really understand the following - I am an old dog and new tricks take a while to learn.
Explanation or how-to would help a lot.

Hello,
All of my torrents are saying 0 seeds, and no download speed. I have checked firewall setting and all is open for business.

Any suggestions, how can I kickstart this thing?
