I have recently started having problems with Transmission.
When I click on the icon on the desktop or select it from ‘Applications/Internet/Transmission’ it takes about 3 minutes for the GUI to show up on the desktop. When it finally shows, none of the torrents download any data, they show as ‘Downloading from 0 of 0 Peers’ it never actually connect to any, even when left overnight. They eventually stall.
It’s nothing to do with my blocklist, which I can no longer find! I’ve done a full search for ‘.config’ and there’s no sign of it, which is strange as Transmission still shows the blocklist.
I have installed Transmission on a laptop with Win7 installed and it works fine so I don’t know what is wrong with the one on my PC with Ubuntu 12.04LTS on…
Found ‘.config’ by other means - accidentally found it’s path in Transmissions message log.
I had same problems w Transmission- think it got some vulnerability and stopped being supported- couldn’t even reinstall it., but what I did find was identical in appearance and operation: [i]Qtransmission bitttorrent client[/i]. Remove transmission, search for Qtrans and you should have no problems.
I’m now not sure it it is Transmission as I have installed qBittorrent and Vuze. None of them are connecting and downloading anything. So I am thinking that there is something missing but I don’t know what.
Looking at it a second time…
PC to have a static IP… It does
Torrent App to use static port…It does
Router to forward incoming to the PC static IP address… That’s the complicated part I need help with.
One part I am struggling with is ‘Services’
…Spoke too soon >:(
I’ve set port forwarding rules for Qbittorrent, Vuze and Transmission and only Qbit works?
Even setting a range of ports for all of them to use, all but the one for Qbit show as closed to the software?
And…Yes. I have set the same port to be used in the software.
