Azureus Problems - Even with ports open getting not connectable

#1
This has been really bugging me for some time. At my house we have ADSL shared with a router blah blah, have opened the ports for Bittorrent on our routers inbuilt firewall, however my torrents still sit on yellow and never go green, the weird thing is, my flatmates ones do. Neither of us are running any software firewall, we can't figure out why his ones go green and mine don't.

Any ideas?

If you go to the azureus website... they tell you that most ISPs have restricted the bandwidth on all the default ports for all p2p applications. They also recommend that you use a port starting 50000 or something like that.

You'll need to configure your firewall's port forwarding settings too.

Yep I was using ports in the 50000's anyway cos filelists tracker requires you to do so, its just my flatmate was using the same ports.

Thanks, it seems to have worked, at least 1 of my torrents has gone green so far anyway.

Yeah you can't both use the same ports. :p Also some trackers might not like 2 connections from same IP if you guys are grabbing torrents from the same place.

EVERYTHING STARTED WHEN ITRYED TO UPDATE MY PREVIOUS VERSION..
PLEASE HELP ME..
First up, turn off caps lock. It does you no favours.

Secondly, what exactly happens when you try and start Azureus? What platform are you on? and have you tried a simple un-install/re-install ?

There's a problem with version 2.3.0.0 and above regarding 99.9% cpu usage. They say it's to do with NOD32 and that you should configure the AV so that it ignores scanning the javaw.exe file and install a fresh copy of Azureus.

Well, this doesn't work for me. It still has 99.9% cpu usage even after following all their instructions, so I'm sticking to version 2.2.0.2 until they sort it out properly.

I've got the same dang problem with Azureus 2.3.0 using about 100% of my fricken CPU. I've updated the java client, got rid of the old, and messed with it about as long as I had with finals comming up... I finally downgraded the client, and got my CPU time back...

In the midst of all that, the computer became so unresponsive, it had to open task manager and kill process to get any responsiveness from a key stroke, mouse movement, anything... I should probably try to get the new client working (and that popup to tell me to upgrade to a client that hasn't worked for me) while playing a game or something is rather annoying... Come back and dead or something :eek:

Stick with 2.2.0.2 for as long as you can.... they stated that there was a problem with 100% cpu in 2.3.0.0 but done nothing about it when they released 2.3.0.2

had the same problem and did the same thing, staying with 2.2.0.2. Silly people

One idea would be not to use Azureus? Try BitComet or BitLord (written in C++ instead of Java => use less resources) or whatever. There are plenty of good clients out there besides Azureus.
